Holistic is a term derived from the Greek word 'holos', meaning 'whole'.
Reflexologists treat the whole body; they do not generally work on one specific organ or system. They treat the symptoms and also aim to treat the cause. They aim to restore balance and harmony to the whole body, taking into account the individual's mind, body and spirit.
