What is Holistic Nursing?

Holistic Nursing is a specialty practice that draws on knowledge ,theories, experience and intuition while partnering with individuals, groups and communities to provide a uniquely individualized healing experience.


This practice model recognizes the totality and interconnectedness of body, mind and spirit. It takes into consideration social, cultural, relational, contextual and environmental aspects of "being."


Conventional nursing practices are integrated and complimented by the holistic attitude and philosophy which broadens and enriches the scope of the care provided.


It is healthcare focused on YOU .

What would a treatment session include?

A Holistic nursing treatment is a partnering approach including ,most importantly, the focus of your goals becoming our goals .  When we heal ourself everyone will benefit in all ways imaginable and unimaginable.


Investigation and navigation, lead by YOUR wellness goals, become the focused intention of our session  and determine the appropriate treatment and care plan for each visit.
