06 May Holistic Health Care
Holistic medicine is a form of healing that considers the whole person — body, mind, spirit, and emotions — in the quest for optimal health and wellness?
A disease is simply the way your body manifests an underlying stress or dysfunction occurring within the body. Typically, a person will be prone to a disease that runs in the family. Releasing these stresses whether they are physical, mental / emotional, or chemical, may help restore health to your body and help keep these diseases at bay.
The idea behind holistic healthcare is that your body, given the right essentials, has the ability to heal itself. What modalities within this realm do is help your mind and body identify these stresses and then find resolution so that you can heal from them.
With definitions from Oxford Languages, Holistic modalities include:
- Chiropractic – a system of integrative medicine based on the diagnosis and manipulative treatment of misalignments of the joints, especially those of the spinal column, which are held to cause other disorders by affecting the nerves, muscles, and organs.
- Massage – rubbing and kneading of muscles and joints of the body with the hands, especially to relieve tension or pain.
- Acupuncture – involves stimulating points along energy pathways with or without pricking the skin or tissues with needles, used to alleviate pain and to treat various physical, mental, and emotional conditions.
- Craniosacral – a form of bodywork or alternative therapy that uses gentle touch to palpate the synarthrodial joints of the cranium and tensions in the fascia surrounding the body.
- Diet / Nutrition – the process of providing or obtaining the food necessary for health and growth.
- Mental Health Counseling – therapy that combines traditional psychotherapy and problem solving with the intent of changing the problem or issue.
- Exercise – activity requiring physical effort, carried out to sustain or improve health and fitness.
- Physical therapy – the treatment of disease, injury, or deformity by physical methods such as massage, heat treatment, and exercise rather than by drugs or surgery.
- Occupational Therapy – the use of assessment and intervention to develop, recover, or maintain the meaningful activities, or occupations, of individuals, groups, or communities.
- Yoga – a Hindu spiritual and ascetic discipline, a part of which, including breath control, simple meditation, and the adoption of specific bodily postures, is widely practiced for health and relaxation.
Dr. Mary Nochimson, Beta Tau
Bio: Hi Sisters! My name is Dr. Mary Nochimson, but you can call me “Dr. Mary”. I am a board certified chiropractor in Broward County, Florida. In addition to being a licensed Doctor of Chiropractic, I am also a certified acupuncturist and licensed massage therapist. My other certifications include ashiatsu, bamboosage, craniosacral therapy (CS1, CS2, Peds 1, Peds 2) and NAET (Nambudripad’s Allergy Elimination Technique). When patients seek health options other than, or in addition to, medications and surgery, I love to integrate a combination of holistic therapies in one session for best results.
I LOVE the art of healing and I LOVE educating. I am always trying to find new ways to connect with the community, helping them find and connect with resources to enhance their quality of life! She volunteers for Bowtie Kids, a nonprofit aimed to support, nurture, and empower children and their families impacted by chronic pain, through education and support programming so that they can secure a better quality of life. She is thrilled and excited to add Delta Phi Epsilon’s Health & Wellness Committee as a way to reach more women. She also wrote a children’s book, “A Craniosacral Story”, which is meant to educate parents and their children about Craniosacral.
