Holistic Wellness Consultations
“The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step.”
~ Lao Tzu (604 - 531BC) ~
In this quote, Lao Tzu is expressing that great things start from humble beginnings.
Are you sleeping well?
Are you feeling tired and fatigued?
Would you like to more energy and motivation?
Do you have a need to be more resilient to stress?
Would you like to eat better but need a starting point?
Are you challenged with juggling the day to day demands of everyday life?
A Wellness Consultation can be the first step for making positive change towards the level of all round wellbeing that you desire.
What is Wellness?
Wellness can be described as a state that combines health and happiness – or the conscious pursuit of a healthy, balanced lifestyle that results in an overall feeling of well-being and a direction in progress toward an ever-higher potential of functioning.
The term has been defined as “an active process of becoming aware of and making choices for a better quality of life”.
Wellness is ‘health’care without medication, which can not only eliminate health problems, but also prevent them. It involves managing both the mind and body states after the basic needs of food, shelter and basic medical care have already been met.
What is the Holistic Approach?
Holism relates to how physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual elements are interconnected. The general principle of holism was summarized by Aristotle as "The whole is more than the sum of its parts". When one part of the body or mind is out of balance, it is believed to affect the person as a whole.
Psychosomatic conditions are defined as “of or pertaining to a physical disorder that is caused by, or notably influenced by emotional factors” and “pertaining to or involving both the mind and body” ie: emotional issues that manifest in physical form (stress = stomach ulcers, cardiovascular disorders, hair loss, etc).
The holistic approach therefore focuses on the whole person rather than just on the condition or part of the body that is not balanced; addressing the ‘cause’ of the issue rather than simply just the ‘symptoms’. Therefore creating a positive synergising effect in both mind and body, in order to promote optimal health and wellness.
What Does a Holistic Wellness Consultation Involve?
A Holistic Wellness Consultation involves a review of your diet, lifestyle, stress relief mechanisms, emotional, mental and relationship challenges (personal and professional), your exercise regime and medical history; as well as your wellness goals, expectations, and your level of commitment to achieving your goals. All these things considered will allow us together to formulate a manageable and achievable wellness plan to help you adopt healthy lifestyle habits and live a more balanced lifestyle.
