Holistic therapy is a treatment which aims to treat a client as a whole, rather than as a being separated into different parts which do not interconnect. Holistic therapy treats the individual’s body, spirit, and mind.
It is often used to treat individuals who are also being treated with traditional medicine, for example patients who are taking pharmaceutical drugs for a medical condition or undergoing therapy for a mental disorder.
Individuals with certain conditions–including pregnant women and people with high blood pressure (unless controlled by medication)–are advised to avoid the Hot Stone Massage. Also children and the elderly may find discomfort in the application of heat as they have more sensitive thermoreceptors.
