At Primrose Healing and Wellness, we prioritize a holistic approach to therapy.  Traditional therapy, or talking therapy, is an incredibly beneficial practice. However, there is so much more to our livelihood than simply sharing emotions – so at Primrose we incorporate a wide range of practices – both traditional and a few not-so-traditional – to help you grow stronger in yourself and craft a meaningful life.

Holistic therapy has a wide range of benefits, which you can read about here. But if you’re new to this particular therapeutic approach, you might be thinking – what does holistic therapy even look like? We’ve got you covered.

Holistic therapy involves a huge range of practices, including yoga, reiki, cognitive behavioral therapy, family therapy, nutritional consulting, support groups, and psychoeducational groups and workshops to name a few. Today we’re going to focus on a few of these techniques and highlight how a diversified approach to wellness can reap plentiful rewards.

Yoga

Yoga is more than just stretching. It’s a practice that includes breathing and meditating and is used to calm the mind and ease anxiety and stress. Its history is rooted in a lifestyle of wellbeing that heals the body and the mind. Its adaptation into Western culture has meant that some have compacted yoga into 60-minute classes, however, it’s the remedial nature of the practice that leads to long-term healing.

Reiki

Reiki is a Japanese technique to decrease stress, promote relaxation, and above all, center on healing and well-being.  It’s no wonder that at Primrose Healing and Wellbeing we fully support incorporating a Reiki practice into health routines!

Reiki is both a hands-on and hands-off method to restore balance to the body through realigning the chakras, which allows for energy to flow more freely and evenly throughout the body.  This process of opening and adjusting helps to soothe tensions which manifest both physically and psychologically.  While this can sound very abstract for newcomers to the practice, incorporating Reiki into your health and wellbeing routine is an important indication that you’re ready to move away from the unbalanced and begin to center and reenergize yourself.  Learn more about Reiki here.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

CBT is a type of talking therapy that focuses on how can we think about particular situations in our lives, and how that thought pattern affects the way we act. Those actions can affect our mood, and so decoding how and why we react to particular triggers is key to understanding how to understanding how to move beyond them. Learn more about the services we offer here.

Nutritional Counselling

What we eat plays a huge role in how we feel physically, emotionally, and mentally. Primrose offers nutritional counseling to help identify how to eat right for you, and you alone. What works for one person won’t necessarily work for another, and in a world where we are constantly bombarded by fad diets and an immense pressure to shrink ourselves down, we see nutritional counseling as a way to find peace and even joy with how we eat. Learn more about the services we offer here.
