I have always dreamed of having a holistic centre. Not sure why but since being a teenager this was something that was part of my vision.
That vision has now become a reality. One thing that holding a vision in mind has taught me, is the power of thoughts and goals. Without too much effort I have now found myself as director of the Prestwich Holistic Centre in Manchester. We are a team of talking and holistic therapists offering various treatments for varying problems. Holistic therapy can help restore balance and realign oneself to one’s inner innate well-being.
My belief is that we come into the world as a whole, healthy happy souls. Over time, life’s ups and downs may cause us to become disconnected to our inner resilient happy selves. The ‘work’ is then about ‘reconnecting’ to our inner source of physical and spiritual well-being.

The word ‘holistic’ comes from the word ‘whole’ which means complete. Holistic health is a wellness approach that addresses the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual aspects of an individual. This is because we all would like to feel well in all areas of our lives. These areas include physically, mentally, emotionally and to be more fully ourselves. So holistic health intends to treat a person’s body, spirit, emotions, relationships and mind. The focus is on the whole person rather than focus on a specific condition or illness. These various parts of a person work together to bring about homeostatic wellbeing for optimal health.
Holistic treatment doesn’t just slap a plaster on a person’s symptoms. Rather the therapy aims to find the ‘root’ of the problem. The problem is often because of having fallen out of balance in various areas of one’s life.
I have recently had a few clients come along for therapy as they were experiencing sleep difficulties. The temptation is sometimes to go straight to the problem and try and ‘fix’ that. Yet what I am finding more beneficial is to begin focusing on the whole person. It very often becomes clear that important parts of the person’s life have gone out of balance. This results in symptoms such as sleep difficulties, anxiety, low mood and other surface-level problems. It’s a bit like the dashboard of a car that is flashing various lights. These lights are indicators that the car needs a service of some sorts. Holistic therapy is that service.
So healing and wellbeing are promoted through looking at various elements. These may include nutrition, movement, stress management as well as attitudinal and behavioural changes. Relationship and spiritual counselling may also be included if necessary.
Some benefits include that you will work with professionals who look for the source of your health and emotional issues. This may help to avoid medication if that is your choice. You’ll also learn to live a more balanced lifestyle, with increased self-awareness. Another benefit is that both short and long term you will be proactive in your health, rather than reactive. In the long term, you will also save time, energy, and money by making better-informed health choices now.
Living a holistic lifestyle enables people to gain the most enjoyment from life. You will also establish powerful daily health, emotional, mental and spiritual habits. These habits can be with you for life, keeping you well and healthy on all levels. Healthy living leads to vibrant wellbeing.
The Prestwich Holistic Centre is home to various professionals. We are passionate about helping you accomplish your individual health and wellness goals. Each of the over 25 dedicated practitioners are able to work together to assist you and your loved ones in achieving optimal health.
We have an array of talking therapists. These include psychologists, counsellors, psychotherapists, hypnotherapists and life coaches. Our holistic practitioners can offer massage, reiki, acupuncture, kinesiology and meditation. We also have nutritionists and personal trainers to address the physical components.
Our aim is to help direct people to the recognition that life and healing come from within. That ultimately the promotion and maintenance of health wellbeing is preferable to the treatment of illness.
We are able to help you examine the five aspects of holistic health. These are the physical, emotional, social, spiritual, and mental parts of your life.
We offer a range of programmes, workshops, classes and webinars. These may be included to enhance your knowledge and skills. This may help improve your ability to care for yourself and your loved ones in a new way.
Holistic health help is available in Manchester at our well-being centre as well as online via skype or zoom.
So in summary, holistic health takes a whole-person approach to health and healing. This may include body, mind, and soul as well as environmental aspects of everyday living. A holistic approach reminds a person that the whole is made up of many interdependent parts. When one part is out of balance or neglected, it affects the other parts.
Holistic health puts the majority of wellbeing in the hands of the individual. This is done through education, mindful and informed choices, self-study and coaching or therapy. It is a way of life that is in harmony with nature and the inner needs of a person.
At the Prestwich Holistic Centre here in Manchester, our holistic health practitioners are here to support the individual in a whole-person healthy way of living. These holistic therapy sessions can be in-person sessions at our centre in Prestwich, Manchester. Otherwise are also available by teletherapy or online via Skype, Zoom or Whatsapp video call.
Health and healing take personal choice, observation, and commitment. We will help you to become more aware of your current experience. We will then help you learn what improves your symptoms as well as what makes symptoms worse. You will learn to nourish your whole being.
Learning the basics of holistic health will help you improve your health and wellbeing.
