Holistic Healing

What is holistic healing anyway? Holistic healing encompasses a wide range of complementary and alternative therapies, including acupuncture, herbal medicine, massage therapy, yoga, meditation, and energy healing practices like Reiki and Qigong. Rather than focusing solely on alleviating symptoms, holistic healing takes into account the unique needs and experiences of each individual. As always, check with your medical team first to get the ok. You're a team for a reason ;-)


Studies have shown that holistic healing can have profound benefits for people going through cancer. Research conducted by the National Institutes of Health has found that practices such as yoga, meditation, and mindfulness-based stress reduction can help reduce symptoms of anxiety, depression, and fatigue among individuals affected by cancer. Additionally, holistic therapies like acupuncture and massage therapy have been shown to alleviate pain, improve quality of life, and enhance overall well-being.


Whether it's practicing yoga to cultivate strength and flexibility, exploring meditation to quiet the mind and promote inner peace, or receiving acupuncture to restore balance and harmony in the body, holistic healing offers a multitude of paths to wellness. By nurturing our mind, body, and spirit, we can tap into our innate capacity for healing and resilience.
