What is a Holistic Nurse?

Mind-body-spirit ~ self-care  ~  healing  ~  wellness-focused  ~  whole person  ~ life experience  ~  peace  ~  recovery  ~ 


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.  


What is a Holistic Nurse?

A Holistic  Nurse is a fully credentialed Registered Nurse with additional specialized training in mind-body therapies. 


What are Holistic Therapies?

Holistic therapies integrate Eastern and Western medicine and can include a range of modalities such as:
 

Reiki

Mindfulness 

Relaxation Strategies

Aromatherapy

Acupuncture

Herbal Medicine & Natural Products

Guided Imagery


Is Psychotherapy a Holistic Therapy?

Psychotherapy is not considered a holistic modality; it can be considered a "mind" therapy, but does not typically address the whole person in terms of mind, body and spirit.


Several Regulated Health Professions may practice psychotherapy in Ontario. These include nurses, psychologists, social workers and others licensed with a regulatory college in Ontario. However, each psychotherapist brings her/his own skills, training and theoretical preferences. 

A Holistic RN Psychotherapist brings a mind-body-spirit focus and integrates Eastern and Western medicine approaches to your psychotherapy sessions. 


For example, your holistic RN Psychotherapist may offer Cognitive Behavioural Therapy along with Reiki, essential oils, guided imagery and herbs to optimize whole mind/body/spirit healing. 


Where Can I Find a Holistic Nurse? 

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. They are mainstream in much of the United States and Europe. Demand in Canada is beginning to increase.


To meet the need for professional, holistic nursing care in Southern Ontario,  Holistic Nursing Services was established to provide accessible & affordable whole person  nursing care to people in Southern Ontario.

How Can a Holistic Nurse Help Me?

While most people see us for Psychotherapy or Reiki, there are lots of times a Holistic Nurse can be extremely helpful.


Feeling anxious about upcoming surgery?

We can talk about the impact of surgery on your life, teach you some techniques to reframe your anxiety, offer Reiki for deep relaxation before your surgery & after surgery to support healing, 


Suffer from insomnia or chronic pain?

We will explore your experience and develop a plan together that may include cognitive behavioural therapy, nutrition, mindfulness, Reiki, therapeutic use of essential oils & sound, and options for pain control.   


Facing cancer? 

In addition to psychotherapy, several holistic options can be used including support with pain control, anxiety, depression, immunity and optimal  nutrition. Reiki has well documented benefits on pain control, well-being and profound relaxation. We can also answer your questions about the role of medical cannabis in managing side effects of conventional cancer treatment & sort through the science and the myths. 


Preparing for transition to death?

Palliative care is where holistic nursing can be exceptionally helpful. Anxiety, pain, unresolved issues, fear, confusion & spiritual distress can be part of dying. 

Holistic nursing can work with patients, families & health care providers to support a peaceful, dignified transition. 

We can develop a plan for psychotherapy, Reiki, essential oils, music, pain control & spiritual support. 

Contact us to arrange  "at the bedside" treatments for you or your loved one. 


Having a baby? 

Reiki & therapeutic use of sound can be part of your birth plan to assist in focusing, calming and reducing perceptions of pain and anxiety. 

Reiki is safe for use with moms and babies - many women have reported decreased stress & calming effects with Reiki.


Experiencing Psychosis? 

Psychotic symptoms such as voice hearing may be about as common as being left-handed. Symptoms  can have many roots, including trauma, bereavement, sleep deprivation, substance misuse, and mental illnesses such as depression, schizophrenia, borderline personality disorder or bipolar affective disorder. 

We offer Cognitive Behavioural Therapy for Psychosis (CBTp). 


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.
