What is Holistic Therapy?

Holistic therapy is a special type of treatment that focuses on healing the body in its entirety, that is, taking into account the mental, physical, emotional and spiritual planes, in search of optimal health and well-being. The main goal of holistic therapy is to achieve the right balance in all areas of life.

Imbalances in physical, emotional or spiritual life harm our general health. Although holistic therapy tends not to use western medicine, treatment may include conventional medications along with alternative therapies. 

However, this type of approach understands that the main factors that cause physical illness are diet, sleeping habits, stress, personal problems, managing emotions, etc., they are considered as part of the treatment process. 

Simply put, medicines can be used to relieve symptoms; however, lifestyle modifications should be considered as the main alternative to heal and stop the recurrence of diseases.

7 Types of Holistic Therapies

A wide variety of holistic approaches are used to help patients achieve good health and take full responsibility for their own well-being. Here are the main types of holistic therapies:

1. Massages

All types of massage are used to perform holistic therapy. These techniques involve manipulating muscles, connective tissues, ligaments, tendons, and soft tissues of the body to improve health and well-being. Massage therapy helps reduce anxiety and stress, pain, rehabilitate injuries, relax muscles, and promote overall health and wellness.

2. Acupuncture

Acupuncture involves inserting small, fine needles into specific areas of the skin to restore balance and help the body heal. Acupuncture has been part of traditional Chinese medicine for centuries. There is evidence to support the effectiveness of acupuncture in treating a wide variety of disorders when performed by a highly qualified professional.

Acupuncture can treat all kinds of pain, such as the back, joint, muscle, headache, jaw pain, dental pain, it also helps reduce stress and anxiety, being a complementary treatment to help stop smoking. It is also capable of controlling nausea after a chemotherapy session or an operation.

3. Meditation

Meditation is a holistic therapy that uses mindfulness or focuses the mind on thoughts or activities to train awareness and attention to achieve clarity of mind and a calm emotional state. Meditation can reduce anxiety, stress, and pain. Meditation has many other benefits, such as increasing peace, self-concept, perception, and general well-being.

4. Naturopathy

Naturopathy is a holistic therapy that uses natural remedies to help the body heal itself. This therapy is different from homoeopathy in that it encompasses multiple therapies such as massage, the use of natural herbs, acupuncture, and nutritional counselling to help the body heal faster naturally.

5. Homoeopathy

Homoeopathy is another holistic therapy that focuses on triggering the body’s natural defences. Treatment is based on the principle that the body has the ability to heal itself. Homoeopathy is administered using small amounts of natural plants and minerals known to stimulate natural healing. 

The therapy is commonly used to treat allergies, depression, migraines, and rheumatoid arthritis, among other minor ailments such as headaches, nausea, colds, and coughs.

6. Chiropractic

Chiropractic care focuses on diagnosing and treating mechanical disorders of the musculoskeletal system (especially spinal disorders). The therapy involves manual manipulation of soft tissues and joints by hand to treat ailments related to back and neck pain. 

The therapy can treat back pain, joint pain, non-musculoskeletal conditions, sprains, tendinitis, and headaches, among many other ailments.

7. Exercise

Exercise is considered a holistic therapy, as being in good physical shape has been shown to improve a person’s health naturally. Exercise is crucial to optimal health and wellness, as it increases the body’s metabolism, a process that helps process food faster and ensures that all body systems function effectively.

Metabolism is a complex process involving enzymes and hormones that not only transform food into “fuel” but also dictate how efficiently “fuel” is used. A person’s metabolism slows down naturally with age. Other factors also come into play like gender. At rest, men tend to burn calories faster than women. 

Also, toned people tend to have a higher metabolic rate compared to others. Genetics also plays an important role. One of the best ways to maintain your optimal metabolism rate is to exercise.

Who should try Holistic Therapy?

Holistic Integral Psychotherapy is indicated for all kinds of people and problems, whether or not they have done other cycles of therapy before. It works individually, in pairs or in a group, according to particular needs. It will be useful to solve a specific problem or also to carry out a complete cycle of self-knowledge and healing.

This type of psychotherapy starts from a simple but decisive assumption in its effectiveness: the human being is a totality. Other types of therapy work on one level, neglecting the others. Normally, this level is the mental one, which allows observing, realizing and even changing certain aspects, but not solving or totally eradicating the problem.

Another common lack in other types of therapy is not contemplating the unconscious dimension. At a conscious level we can operate with what we see and connect in a habitual way, but this level – almost always accessible – often shows us the unfolding of the problem, its symptoms, but does not reveal the causes.

In almost all of the people’s problems, their roots lie in the unconscious, those psychic areas with which we do not connect in a normal way.

On the other hand, it is still common not to take the Body into account in psychotherapeutic processes, when it is a fundamental way of working, as well as the Emotional dimension that is usually worked in a partial formal way.

Finally, another variable that is usually lacking, perhaps because it is recently developed, is the application of Applied Neuropsychology Techniques. Therefore, these dimensions (Unconscious, Body, Brain and Emotion) are the ones that normally need me most to influence the development of my work.

In order to truly eradicate a problem and for true transformation to occur, it is necessary to access the unconscious and integrate it into the conscious. Similarly, if the mind understands something, but the person’s brain, emotions, body, and energy do not accompany the process, the change will not be possible. The entire system has to carry out the transformation: it is necessary to work the entire system.

Holistic psychotherapy will allow you to cover the common deficiencies of some therapeutic processes; among them:

  • An emotional work at a conscious but not unconscious level.
  • A cognitive-behavioural work that generates changes at the superficial level without uprooting the causes of the problem.
  • A pseudo-spiritual or pseudo energetic work in which one does not work on a psycho-emotional level. This case is particularly dangerous since the person creates an illusion of well-being, which further masks the problem.
  • An exclusively mental psychoanalytic work without involving the body or the emotional dimension.
  • Any psychotherapeutic or psychological work that does not involve the body.
  • Work neither the character nor the personality.
  • Do not contemplate the cerebral/neurological dimension.
  • Discard the bioenergetic dimension.
  • Promote directly or indirectly the person’s dependence on therapy instead of their autonomy.

Conclusions

In this article, we talked about the Transformational Choices Holistic Therapy. We explained what holistic therapy is, who should try holistic therapy and gave you 7 amazing examples of holistic therapies. 

If you have already done a cycle of therapy but have not solved the problem, it is likely due to the fact that a variable that needed to be treated was not considered. If, on the other hand, you have not yet done any therapy, with holistic psychotherapy, you will be sure that all the variables involved in the process will be treated, thus guaranteeing that the transformation is real, complete and lasting.

From all this, it follows that the benefits of this method come from its approach: the person is considered as a whole. A psychotherapy cycle should develop a job that is done once in a lifetime and lasts a lifetime.

Transformational Choices is a community-based professional service that has as main goal the improvement of one’s life by psychological well-being therapy seasons for individuals, groups and families. Transformational Choices offers relationship, couples, and marriage holistic therapy sessions.
