Three Reasons Why a Holistic Approach to Therapy is Beneficial

Primrose Healing and Wellness takes a uniquely holistic approach to therapy, healing, and metamorphosis. We take the whole person into consideration when designing each individual’s transformative path to wellness. Instead of utilizing therapy in the more traditional exercise of physiological exploration, a holistic approach to therapy includes an examination of physical and spiritual contexts as well.

Human beings are complex and multifaceted, and so need a means to wellness that takes this into consideration. The methods that Primrose offers, such as cognitive behavioral therapy, mindfulness and meditation, yoga, nutritional consulting, and psychoeducational workshops, are interconnected, complimentary, and help each person to find their own individualized path to a new state of mental, spiritual, and physical health.

Here are three reasons why you should consider a holistic approach to therapy. It can:

1. Improve overall health.

Adding restorative practices such as yoga into wellness routines simultaneously transforms both mind and body. Yoga involves a meditative like focus on breath and a calming mental focus on movement and body. Studies have shown that a regular yoga practice can increase happiness, improve focus and information retention, and reduce stress. And of course, the physical aspect of yoga leads to an increase in flexibility and strength and has even been demonstrated to help some sleep better at night.

2. Help craft a balanced life.

Creating a routine which includes varying activities to improve mental, physical, and spiritual health will help encourage a balanced and more harmonious lifestyle. For example, when solely utilizing talking therapy to address a condition like stress or anxiety, the incredible benefits of a healthy diet, regular exercise, and spiritual support may not be prioritized. But a true wellness routine will include a big-picture approach to pursuing a healthy and thriving life.

3. Change the root cause of challenges.

By looking at intersecting aspects across a person’s life, a greater understanding can be reached as to how best address the root causes to challenges faced. Rather than treat the symptoms, difficulties can be addressed directly and through a dynamic range of methods. When attended to with the positive and affirming methods of holistically-oriented therapy, the opportunity for powerful change is in the hands of all who are open to it.
