About Me

holistic therapy in BristolHello and a warm welcome to Simply Holistics in Bristol

Hi, I’m Maria, I am a qualified Complementary Therapist and Reiki Master.  I run my practice near Blaise Castle, Bristol.  I offer a range of therapies to help you achieve maximum relaxation and well-being, focusing on establishing a balance between mind and body.  The following is a little about me and my approach to holistic therapy.

Over the years I have I have used many different holistic therapies and firmly believe they can help us bring balance in our life .  Early on I had a particular interest in Nutrition which led me into the area of holistic therapy. Following the birth of my daughter I took a career break and decided to retrain in the professional use of complementary therapies so I could share the enormous benefits with others.

I have a keen interest in how our mental health can have a huge impact on our physical wellbeing,  how our minds along with our emotions effect our body.  I strongly believe that for us to have optimum health we must consider not just our physical health but all aspects of ourselves, mind, body and spirit.  All three elements combined determine our health.

How holistic therapy can help and support you?

Complementary Therapy applies an holistic approach to health, treating a person as a whole on all levels. mind, body and spirit, with the aim of bringing the body back into balance and to promote the body’s natural healing abilities.

Stress and many disorders can benefit from this holistic approach to health, as the focus is on a person’s overall well-being, aiming to restore balance on all levels.  They are extremely effective in helping with stress, anxiety and depression by providing that safe space for relaxing the nervous system and encouraging healing.

Holistic therapies are excellent in managing pain relief and can act as a form of preventative medicine as well as being non-invasive and drug free, with no toxic effects on the body.
