FOR THE STAFF at Total Health & Healing Center in Coon Rapids, a Holistic Healing Center is a clinic that provides caring, individualized treatments for each patient, using whatever works best for the issues at hand. It involves determining where the blockages to healing are and finding the most appropriate treatment or combination of treatments to relieve them.
A holistic center offers many natural treatments in one location. It’s not interested in putting Band-aids on symptoms but determining the real cause and the appropriate treatments. A holistic healing center also educates patients/clients in what true health and healing means in everyday life.
A holistic healing clinic can be an alternative to conventional medicine and provide a second opinion. Often a patient is desperate for other options but doesn’t know where to look. They don’t know what they need for healing. A healing center should be able to assist them with information and suggestions for a start on their healing path.
At Total Health & Healing Center, three practitioners offer different techniques, modalities and talents. What they share is the same focus on the patients’ health, healing and well-being. They work together to create a combined healing energy field and provide a different set of eyes, ears and thoughts on the care of clients.
What should someone consider when choosing a holistic healing clinic? The Total Health & Healing staff believes you should look for practitioners who are honest, sincere and without a big ego. A good practitioner must have the patient’s healing as the top priority. This includes: individualized treatment plans, a plethora of natural treatment options, excellent communication and patient education, and a sincere interest in helping the patient move past their blocks to true healing.
Healing practitioners are continually educating themselves with new ideas and techniques to add to their ability to care for people. Healing is a journey, not a destination.
