Holistic Therapy

When most people get sick or have a condition that they need to manage, many turn to doctors and therapists to give them clinical interventions and medication. However, while those two things can address the symptoms and the disease to promote physical health, those approaches fall short when addressing a person’s emotional and spiritual well-being.

Holistic treatments or complementary therapies are often used to help fill in the gaps left by conventional treatments.

At Kembali, we believe that addressing mental health concerns, substance use, and process addiction requires treating the spirit as well as the mind and the body.

What is Holistic Therapy?

Holistic therapy is an approach to healing and wellness that considers the whole person — mind, body, emotions, and spirit — rather than focusing solely on specific symptoms or issues. It emphasises the interconnectedness of all aspects of an individual’s life and seeks to promote balance, harmony, and recovery.

A holistic approach to treatment may draw from disciplines such as psychology, nutrition, exercise science, spirituality, energy work, and traditional healing practices from other cultures.

It often includes a combination of interventions aimed at supporting physical health, emotional well-being, mental wellness, and spiritual growth.

The goal of a holistic treatment is to address the root causes of health issues, promote mindfulness, relaxation, and self-healing, and foster a sense of overall wellness and liveliness.

While some people may doubt the effectiveness of holistic therapy, there is evidence that suggests that holistic approaches can improve the mind and body and promote health and healing.

What Are the Benefits of Holistic Therapy?

Holistic treatments can have a wide range of benefits that can enhance multiple aspects of a person. Some of the benefits of a holistic approach to treatment include:


Comprehensive Approach

Holistic treatments consider all aspects of a person’s life, addressing not just symptoms but also underlying causes and contributing factors. This approach can lead to more effective and lasting results. They are not meant to supplant psychotherapy treatments but can complement them as part of a comprehensive therapeutic approach.

Promotion of Self-Healing

Holistic healing empowers individuals to be active participants in their recovery journeys. By promoting self-awareness, self-care, and healthy lifestyle choices, holistic treatment supports the body’s natural ability to heal itself and maintain balance.

Mental Health Support

Stress Management

Many holistic approaches, such as meditation, yoga, and mindfulness practices, are effective in managing stress and helping practitioners relax. Reducing stress levels can have a positive impact on mental and emotional health and well-being. Managing stress can reduce depression and anxiety and improve quality of life for a lot of people.

Holistic Healing

Enhances Emotional Well-Being

Holistic techniques such as art therapy, music therapy, and talk therapy can help individuals process emotions, improve mood, and develop healthy coping strategies for managing stress, anxiety, depression, and other mental health concerns.

Personalised Treatment

Improves Physical Health

Acupuncture, massage therapy, and nutritional counselling can support a person’s physical health by reducing physical pain, improving circulation, boosting immune function, and promoting optimal nutrition.

The benefits of this type of therapy extend beyond just addressing specific symptoms or concerns. They encompass a complete view of health and well-being, promoting a sense of wholeness, vitality, and quality of life.

Types of Holistic Therapy

There is a wide range of modalities that a holistic therapist may employ to foster growth and healing in a person. These modalities include:

Massage Therapy

Professional massage techniques, such as Swedish massage, deep tissue massage, and aromatherapy massage, can be used to relax muscles, reduce muscle tension, improve circulation, and help patients relax.


This is an ancient Chinese practice involving inserting thin needles into specific points on the body to stimulate the flow of energy and promote healing. It’s often used to alleviate pain, reduce stress, and improve overall well-being.


This is an ancient practice that is concerned with focusing the mind and cultivating awareness, mindfulness, and presence. Meditation techniques can vary and may include breath-focused meditation, guided visualisation, loving-kindness meditation, and repeating a mantra.

Process Addiction Treatment

Herbal medicine may address various health concerns, including digestive issues, and sleep troubles like insomnia, boost immunity, and manage stress.
