Welcome! to the Holistic Health Guides.  Complementary and alternative, now mainstream terms, place these health care modalities in relation to allopathic medicine rather than standing on their own as they have for millennia.

Holistic Health better defines the guiding principles of the healing modalities represented in this Guide—those which address the whole person rather than separate parts and take into consideration the body, mind and spirit.  It is exciting to have so many practitioners and businesses working with natural, holistic therapies and approaches to health care.

While it might be easy to become overwhelmed by all the different categories and techniques, please bear in mind that they all have common threads, which include: working with the body, mind and spirit as a whole being; viewing the whole as an energetic being and doing work that harmonizes and balances that energy; and emphasizing the use of natural, non-invasive therapies.

The goal of this guide is to be comprehensive—including as many practitioners and businesses as possible—so it is a useful tool for those searching out holistic health care. It is a joy to compile this guide and learn more about all the work being done in the Upper Valley. However, it must be clear that no endorsement of therapies, practitioners, products or businesses is intended or implied by inclusion in this guide. No unethical or misleading listings or ads have been knowingly included. Definitions of services are for educational purposes only.
