In this new season of health care you will hear and read the words
"Holistic Health" and may not have a real understanding of it's meaning. Let me see if I can help you with the meaning as it pertains to what we at New Beginnings Massage & Holistic Care will be doing.
Holistic Health is based on the premise that a whole is made up
of independent parts and we need to treat each part with respect and with the understanding that from the smallest cell in the body, to the emotional and spiritual needs of self all need to be addressed to achieve total wellness. Like a car which is made up of independent
parts when working together as a “whole” allow the car to run well
giving it a long life. We need to take care of our cars so all the parts can work well together. The same is true with us the "whole" person, we need to take care our selves to achieve optimale heath. Holistic Health practices are in reality an approach to life. Holistic health considers the whole person and how he or she interacts with their own environment. Holistic practices emphasize the connection between the mind, body and spirit encouraging people to take responsibility for their own level of well being; rather than focusing on illness or specific parts of the body the practitioner considers the person as a whole composed of many parts all working together for the greater good.
According to the U.S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention
the key factors influencing an individual’s state of health have not changed significantly over the past 20 years. It has been reported by the American Holistic Health Association that the quality of medical care is only10%, heredity accounts for 18% and the environment is 19%. Everyday life style choices contribute to 53% of our overall
So, my friends it is the decisions we make concerning our habits
and life style choices that play the largest factor in determining our state of wellness. Our cells are constantly being replaced; new cells are built from what is available. On the non-physical level, a person’s mental and spiritual attitudes are formed from what we see and hear. New Beginnings works with the "whole” respecting the beliefs of its guests and encourages, and guides you on your journey to optimal health mind, body and spirit.
