It is clear that holistic, evidenced based approaches to mental health treatment are being utilized by more and more people to reduce anxiety, depression and increase an overall sense of wellbeing. The philosophy of holistic medicine is characterized by the belief that all parts of a human being are interconnected. Treatment can only be successful by addressing the WHOLE person, including, but not limited to nutrition, health concerns, neurobiology, social/ emotional and environmental factors. At TRUST YOUR HEART ~A PLACE FOR HEALING, our practitioners address the treatment of the whole person, taking into account mental, social, physical, spiritual factors, rather than just the symptoms of a presenting problems. We ensure you have a comprehensive plan and referrals, if needed, that will lead you to the health and happiness you seek.
The acceptance of holistic medicine is evidenced by the growth of Integrative Medical Centers in major hospitals across the country.
Integrative therapy, or integrative counseling is a combined approach to psychotherapy that brings together different elements of specific therapies. Integrative therapists take the view that there is no single approach that can treat each client in all situations.
At TRUST YOUR HEART~ A PLACE FOR HEALING, we offer an array of holistic therapies that aim to create a fuller integration of mind, body and spirit. Learning to make one’s mind useful to heal and create one’s reality is key to this approach.
Holistic approaches alone or in combination with traditional methods are found to be effective in treating many of the following issues:
• Anxiety and stress
• Psychological and emotional trauma(s)
• Grief and loss
• General dissatisfaction and unhappiness
• Transitional life experiences
• Pain management
• Smoking cessation
• Weight loss
Holistic psychotherapy utilizes traditional talk therapies and non-traditional therapies such as hypnosis, heart-centered hypnotherapy, breath therapy, guided imagery, progressive relaxation skills, mindfulness, meditation, massage therapy, energy medicine, Reiki, sound healing, yoga, bibliotherapy, creative art and expressive therapies such as dance.
Most of these therapies integrate a strong spiritual component that use different levels of consciousness and spiritual awareness that have meaning for the client, such as those philosophies and practices found in Christian, Jewish and Buddhist traditions.
