Holistic Therapies have been there since time immemorial and were commonly used in ancient Egypt, China and India for their therapeutic effects. Holistic essentially means a comprehensive approach for a person – mind, body and soul. This is the basic area of difference with conventional techniques as one does not single out a particular symptom or weakness area but uses therapy for the person in entirety. Each body has a vital force or life energy that protects the body from disease and allows it to heal. When there is a disbalance in the body diseases occur. Holistic therapists aim to restore this balance, allowing the body to heal itself.
