What is Holistic Physical Therapy & How Does It Foster Healing?

Mid, body and soul

As the demand for holistic and integrative approaches to healing increases, choosing the "right" holistic physical therapy provider is paramount. In many cases, traditional physical therapy is suitable for certain types of injuries, such as athletics. At other times, a more comprehensive therapeutic approach is called for, and that's why holistic PT is the optimal choice. 

Discover critical insights that make holistic physical therapy a preferential treatment for those who appreciate an approach that considers the fullness of their being and not just the injury itself.

What is Holistic Physical Therapy?

Many are familiar with traditional physical therapy, but let's unpack what it means to receive holistic PT.

Holistic physical therapy is a beautiful, integrative, and client-centered approach to rehabilitation and overall health that considers the entirety of an individual's physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being. Unlike traditional physical therapy, which focuses primarily on the symptom and its alleviation, holistic PT addresses the root causes of physical discomfort and promotes overall well-being.

How Does Holistic Physical Therapy Foster Healing?

By tapping into the interconnected aspects of an individual's all-around well-being, holistic physical therapy is full of wisdom. It promotes healing through an all-encompassing mind-body-spirit approach.

By looking for the deeper causes of pain and physical discomfort, integrating powerful therapeutic approaches, and tailoring treatment to individual needs, clients benefit from a far-reaching level of healing.

Additionally, by incorporating advanced therapeutic approaches, which may vary from practitioner to practitioner, clients are treated to a holistic healing experience. An insightful and intuitive diagnosis, paired with a thorough evaluation and alternative treatments, opens the door for the body's natural healing systems to be awakened. 

Perhaps the most beautiful thing about a holistic approach to physical therapy is that it goes beyond basic symptom management; instead, it aims to accelerate and elevate the healing experience that dramatically improves mind, body, and spirit, thus supporting clients who want to remain healthy and active.

Experience A Custom Fit Approach to Holistic PT: What Sets Us Apart

In a crowded field of physical therapy practitioners, our thorough approach is a beacon of light and hope to clients seeking comprehensive care that surpasses what's available in traditional clinical settings. Our treatment approach embraces the mind, body, and spirit connection and aims to discover the source of physical dysfunction to influence overall well-being.

Here's a glimpse of our dynamic, holistic methodology developed over thirty years as a holistic physical therapist, which clearly distinguishes us from other providers:

  1. 1
    Holistic Mind-Body-Spirit Integration: Our practice is deeply rooted in the holistic philosophy; we incorporate the best of Eastern and  Western practices, delving well beyond physical symptoms and considering the complete wellness of a client.We center our evaluation on the mind, body, and spirit, which ensures a deep understanding of any dysfunction or disorder, setting us apart from one-dimensional traditional approaches to physical therapy.
  2. 2
    Personalized Attention and In-Depth Assessment: Treatment sessions are custom-tailored to go beyond generic protocols, offering each client exceptional and intuitive personalized attention.Thorough questioning to gather a complete medical history may include inquiry about cardiac history, visceral issues, digestive problems, stress levels, endocrine system status, menopausal stage (for women), emotional well-being, and surgical and trauma history.Evaluation of the fascial system, understanding its impact on physical pain, range of motion, and movement patterns.My commitment to an in-depth intake assessment exploring the entirety of medical history, physical and emotional health, and individual client concerns goes above and beyond the industry standard and helps me develop the most customized care plan.
  3. 3
    Myofascial Release and Craniosacral Expertise: By integrating advanced techniques like myofascial release and craniosacral therapy, we tap into healing methods not considered in conventional physical therapy.Incorporating the power of somato-emotional release (SER) demonstrates our commitment to addressing emotional trauma, setting us apart from therapists who solely focus on physical aspects.
  4. 4
    Diaphragm-Centric Approach: I place a particular emphasis on diaphragm assessment, enabling me to link physical symptoms to broader issues like reflux, anxiety, pelvic floor, and blood pressure irregularities.Diaphragm dysfunction often impacts breathing mechanics and multiple body functions, providing a holistic understanding typically overlooked by other practitioners. Breathing is essential to all body functions.
  5. 5
    Scar Tissue Recognition and Treatment: Specialized care in recognizing and treating scar tissues, acknowledging their hidden messages and significant impact on physical well-being.Our dedication to addressing not just the symptoms but the underlying scar-related issues positions us in a unique way in holistic physical therapy.
  6. 6
    Intuitive Diagnosis and Recognition of Red Flags: Beyond traditional diagnostics, I have a fine-tuned intuitive ability to recognize red flags and conduct a meaningful differential diagnosis.Instances of uncovering serious underlying issues, such as tumors, have occurred and demonstrate a passionate dedication to clients because each client deserves the highest level of attention and care.If something a client is experiencing doesn't add up, I go the extra mile to investigate what's really happening.
  7. 7
    Nutritional and Blood Work Considerations:My holistic approach includes exploring nutritional aspects and recent blood lab results, ensuring a more in-depth comprehension of the client's health.By linking physical symptoms to nutritional habits, deficiencies, and informative labs, we offer unparalleled care that far exceeds the ordinary physical therapy experience.

Client Testimonial

Martha is an amazing well trained physical therapist and a naturally gifted healer. She listens to her patients but assesses the whole body because she is keenly aware of how every bone and muscle interact and thus affect each other. I wish all health care professionals were like her. So glad we crossed paths after I had worked with several other traditional PTs. This has changed my life.  Teri, Plymouth, MA
