We have been talking about healing; how you can empower your family, loved ones, and friends to heal. But what if you are destined to do more than that?
Ask yourself these questions:
- Do I like helping people?
- Am I passionate about creating and maintaining good health?
- Do I feel fulfilled when I can give solutions to people’s problems?
- Am I always seeking new ways to achieve good health?
If you’ve answered yes to all these questions, then holistic health may be the field for you. As a holistic health practitioner, you promote a higher level of wellness. You are willing to help people get better in all areas: physically, mentally, spiritually, and emotionally. This means you offer various healing practices such as energy healing, crystal healing, aromatherapy with a massage, or herbal treatments.
The part that you should focus on as a holistic health practitioner is the word ‘holistic’ which means ‘for the whole’. You are not just giving your attention to one aspect or a single problem. You’re not targeting a specific part. Instead, you are trying to improve one’s overall health by focusing on the entire body.
I know you may think that being a holistic health practitioner requires a certificate or a diploma but don’t worry about it. Let’s answer essential questions to rid yourself of any confusion that this path is for you.
Can You Become a Holistic Health Practitioner?
The short answer: yes. The long answer: it depends.
To become one, you have to have the thirst and lifelong curiosity to find out what works. It takes hard work and determination. As a Holistic Health Practitioner, you can offer so many possible services, and you will indeed find what’s for you. But you have to keep in mind that you are responsible for the experience and the outcome your clients will go through.
My best advice is to become a holistic health practitioner only when you genuinely love helping people. Refrain from doing it out of knowledge or science. Do it to bring good health to people around you. Do it to bring lasting smiles to people’s faces. Do it to bring healing to their life.
What Field Should You Choose?
Yes, we are still in the midst of the pandemic. But that shouldn’t stop you from your passion. If you think you are destined to become a health practitioner, then view this chance as a way to earn extra money.
So, first things first, pick a field that you love but answer this question: How much do you want to earn? Align your chosen path with that. On average, a chiropractor earns about $67,000 per year. A nutritionist earns $58,000, and a massage therapist earns about $39,000 per year.
Yes, some field pays more, but it is important to check your competition and differentiate the services you offer.
So, in short, it is essential to choose a field out of love and passion while knowing what you might earn yearly.
How Can You Keep Your Clients Happy?
This is something you have to discover yourself.
Running a holistic health practice is not just about the services you can offer. It’s about the experience and relationship you give to your clients. Every single thing matters. The way you answer your phone, the music in your reception area. You will have an extraordinary impact on other people’s lives, while others might leave negative reviews no matter what you do. And that’s okay. You won’t be everyone’s cup of tea, but you will surely be the best one for others out there.
But whatever happens, take everything in and learn from it. Slowly improve your process and make things better and better.
