Therapies which have their origin in ancient Eastern medicine all work on something which may be best termed the “life force”, although there are several different words to describe it – prana in India, chi or qi (pronounced ‘chee’) in China and ki (‘kee’) in Japan.
It is only when this force is able to flow freely and is in the right balance that we can be said to be in optimum health, physically, psychologically, and spiritually.
Imbalances in the wellbeing of the mind and body can lead to ill health, including stress, depression, insomnia, headache/migraine, muscular aches and pains, skin problems and respiratory, reproductive and digestive complaints.
The aim of holistic therapies is to help improve and restore physical and psychological wellbeing by supporting the body’s natural healing processes.
Holistic therapies are ideal for inducing a relaxed state of mind and body, helping to maintain health and vitality.
Holistic therapies do not claim to cure, diagnose or prescribe.
