Mind-body-spirit ~ self-care ~ empowered health ~ healing ~ wellness-focused ~ whole person ~ life experience ~ peace ~ recovery ~ self-responsibility
If these words resonate with you, you already know what you're looking for in health care - a focus on you, not just your disease or symptoms. A Holistic Nurse is a fully credentialed Registered Nurse with additional specialized training in mind-body therapies.
Holistic nurses are legally licensed nurses who use nursing knowledge, theories, expertise and intuition to recognize and care for the totality of the human being... Holistic nurses nurture wholeness, peace and healing by valuing each person's physical, mental, emotional, spiritual and environmental strengths and challenges and honoring each person’s values, health beliefs and health experience. The condition of the whole person is taken into account during the nurse's assessment, diagnosis, planning, intervention and evaluation of the results.
Holistic nurses use holistic principles and modalities... to remove the barriers to the healing process and create a space within and around themselves that allow them to be instruments of healing as they share their authenticity, caring presence and nursing skills to facilitate the birth, growth, recovery or end-of-life transition with all people who need their care.
Holistic nurses work in all healthcare settings including hospitals, universities and private practices. ... [and] help individuals and groups access their greatest healing potential across mainstream and complementary systems.
With a small but growing number of Holistic Nurses in Canada, Holistic Nursing Services was established to provide accessible & affordable holistic nursing care to people in Southern Ontario.

Want to live your best life & maintain your wellness?
Experts tell us that the roots of illness often first appear energetically through very subtle changes. You are doing your best with a healthy diet, activity and stress management, but you may experience some vague, minor concerns on occasion, and wish to bring yourself back into balance and optimal health. In conventional medicine, vague transient concerns such as fatigue, poor concentration, or mild anxiety may be met with a "wait and see" approach or "we are all stressed out - it's just a fact of life". If you want more, visit a Holistic Nurse to review options for bringing your mind, body and spirit back into balance.
