Working Together for Optimal Wellness : Assisting people like you to reach their health goals by helping them feel better, live longer and enjoy life.

Our statement above says it all! Working together for optimal wellness is about a relationship between Halcyon Holistic and you! We believe that optimal health is a balanced integration of mind, body and spirit and that human beings have the innate power to heal themselves and to assist in the healing of others.

From a holistic standpoint, a person is not a patient with a disease syndrome but a whole being. This wholeness necessitates the therapist appreciates the mental, emotional, spiritual, social and environmental aspects of their patients lives, as well as the physical.

The importance of tailoring the treatment to meet the individual’s needs is fundamental. Holistic medicine sees health as a positive state of well being, and not simply the absence of disease. It emphasizes the promotion of health and the prevention of disease. Therapeutic modalities are then employed that mobilize the individual’s innate capacity for self healing. An individual’s role in their own healing process is emphasized, with much responsibility being handed back to them.

We work with our clients so that we can provide education, empowerment, knowledge and support to help each individual towards a balanced path of true wellness. Through our integrated holistic approach to wellness, we have been assisting our customers and clients in achieving their goals of health and well-being within the field of complementary and alternative medicine healthcare. We are committed to working as a team to meet the individual needs of our customers and clients.

Our small shop offers some unique and exclusive wellness products and gifts. We are always happy to answer questions over a cup of complimentary herbal tea. “We believe in spending quality time with every individual customer and client in order to serve their needs when it comes to natural healing as well as preventive healthcare which are paramount to great health”.

Everything flows

In streams of wind and water
In the crowds of everyday life and tones of our world
It flows in torrents and in drops
Silently and roaring life happens all around us.
We seek to balance not just one but all aspects of person
So that the flow may be continuous and allow for positive change and growth.

What does Halcyon mean?

Halcyon has a very beautiful meaning as it is very much connected to nature, to the stars and universe, to peace & tranquility; it was found to best encompass what Holistic Practices mean to us.
Halcyon: calm; peaceful; tranquil: rich; wealthy; prosperous: happy; joyful; carefree: a mythical bird, usually identified with the kingfisher, said to breed about the time of the winter solstice in a nest floating on the sea, and to have the power of charming winds and waves into calmness. serene, placid, pacific, untroubled.
