Change your Lifestyle Improve your Health
"Holistic" as defined by Google: "characterized by the treatment of the whole person, taking into account mental and social factors, rather than just the symptoms of a disease."
The Pink Orchid is a Holistic Wellness Centre.
Holistic treatment is a response to what some people see as a more reactionary approach to health – the tendency to treat symptoms only, instead of finding and treating the root cause. Many people who have felt like traditional medicine has failed them have turned to holistic therapies in hopes that their practitioners will understand the complex nature of their illness, dig deeper into the source(s) of the issue, and focus their treatment on the whole person, not just the obvious symptoms.
For example, someone with chronic pain might come to a holistic therapist to explore possible psychological sources of their suffering. Stress and anxiety can contribute to chronic pain, and if an emotional issue or past trauma is the source of that stress, dealing with it could alleviate many of the symptoms of pain. A holistic therapist may take approaches such as teaching the client to be aware of where the pain originates in the body, look at behaviours that might contribute to the pain (bad posture, repetitive stress, eating habits, etc.) and using cognitive-behavioural therapy to address unresolved issues and triggers.
At The Pink Orchid we have a variety of treatment to assist in alleviating many health-related issues.
