|Hello my name is Erica. I grew up on the Coromandel,
and returned from Tahiti 9 years ago with my family.
I created this website to make it easy to find they array of amazing services available to us when we need some help with our health.
My dream is to gather holistic doctors, art, music, dance, therapist, various retreats center options and the like so people can receive treatments they may not even know existed.
When you hear the words Holistic Health, do you think of alternative and complementary medicines such as naturopathy, homeopathy, or other Eastern-inspired traditional health therapies? Then you’d be partly correct. But there’s more to it.
It's about honoring the mind-body connection and treating the whole person, using a variety of clinically proven therapies and methods.
Holistic Health incorporates all therapies, activities, and services that promote wellness of you as a Whole. Your physical, mental, spiritual, and social needs. All these aspects affect your overall health, and being unwell in one aspect may affect you in another.
Take stress, for example. It's a psychological response, but it can also cause physical symptoms, such as headaches, trouble sleeping, weight gain, and muscle pain. Of course, it works both ways, and being physically ill can cause you to feel anxious or depressed.
Meanwhile, your spirituality and your relationships can boost your mental and physical health. Studies show that having close friendships lowers your blood pressure, reduces your stress levels, and can even improve your chances of surviving cancer.
My reason for creating this website was to make it easier for people to find what they need to maintain their health, or return to health. Because this differs for everyone.
On this site you will find Natural health practitioners, Life and Health coaches, Massage and bodywork Therapist, Mental, Emotional and Spiritual Therapist, Art Therapist, Breath workers, Activities and Courses, Retreat centers, and Relaxation options that will rejuvenate, stimulate encourage and coach you back to health. I hope to keep the site interactive with health tips and up to date research.
