We hear about holism and holistic practitioners every day… but do we really know what it means?
What does holism mean?
The term holism comes from the Greek word όλος, olos, which means “totality”. This term represents a vision of the ‘global’ individual, the union of mind, body, environment and society. The focus is on the person and not on the ‘disease’. On the cause and not the symptom. On the system and not the organ. Rebalancing instead of curing. Stimulating the body’s natural process of self-regeneration.
So who is the holistic practitioner?
The Holistic Operator acts in accordance with the ethical principles of acceptance and respect, kindness and listening, responsibility and competence.
He or she must have a good knowledge of human anatomy, and various natural techniques that are skilfully mixed to bring different benefits to the person. It thus facilitates the natural process of transformation, self-regeneration, global awareness of the person and promotes an ecological and sustainable lifestyle.
The operator customises the treatment and the path according to the specific needs of the person, respecting the specific anatomical characteristics, stimulating communication between mind and body, with the aim of restoring the natural energy balance.
It is important to know that the Holistic Operator is not a therapist, does not make diagnoses and does not treat physical or mental illnesses, does not prescribe medicines or remedies, but can collaborate with medical figures by helping people from an “energetic” point of view.
