Options Health Services also provides culturally appropriate alternative therapies to our clients. We believe that people can be empowered to make medical care choices and that those choices can lead them to happier and more independent living.
We believe everyone can heal themselves if given the evidence-based tools and methodologies. Our alternative therapies include culturally relevant connections, activities, and processes that aid in the holistic healing of the mind, the development and maintenance of healthy lifestyles, and the motivation to pursue ambitions based on the participants’ intrinsic capabilities. These includes:
- Culturally relevant connections, activities, and processes
- Aiding in the holistic healing of the mind
- The development and maintenance of healthy lifestyles
- Pursuing ambitions based on the participants’ intrinsic capabilities
When you’re on the hunt for a therapist, it can be challenging to know where to start. The healing power of cultural connections is potent and has been used for thousands of years. Many indigenous cultures worldwide have used this approach to heal from illness, suffering, and trauma. The wisdom of using appropriate cultural connections to heal is a powerful tool that anyone can use regardless of their cultural background.
Holistic healthcare practitioners believe that treating the whole person — including their physical, mental, and emotional needs — is essential for good health.
We help our NDIS clients to develop and maintain a healthy lifestyle. We support them to make better decisions about what they eat, how they move, and how they manage their overall wellbeing.
Art and music therapy are well-known alternatives, but there are many others. Dance and theatre can aid in the development of better communication abilities. Sand and play therapy are widespread for children. Animal-assisted therapies are another approach that has been demonstrated to help in everyday life improvement.
