Holistica is a wellbeing resource of natural health practitioners, events, services, articles, tips and inspiration developed to inspire, guide and connect you to everything you need to know about living a healthy and abundant life.

Become part of the celebratory and inspirational process of making ongoing deliberate choices to enhance the quality of your life.

Our team is committed to helping you live a life filled with physical, mental, emotional and spiritual wellbeing. Our aim is to offer you access to all the wonderful practitioners and teachers available in each field by featuring them in an easily accessible format. Explore an ever-expanding list of therapists, health disciplines, ailments, natural healing solutions, specially curated articles, services, programmes, events, research, workshops, travel and reviews.

Living your best life means taking a holistic approach in all areas. It’s about paying attention to what you eat, how you move, how you think, how you feel and what you do to consciously choose to be your best self on a daily basis. Think of us as a dedicated networking platform and research library designed to heal, inspire and uplift you along every step of the journey.

Gone are the days of complementary medicine being the exclusive domain of the bohemian beatniks amongst us. The holistic health industry has really taken off over the past few years, and appears to be growing in momentum by the day.

This is of course in line with the evolution of the collective popular consciousness. In a day and age where we are running out of new answers, we are finally ditching the egoic systems of manmade ‘progress’ in favour of the wisdom of the ages.

Patients aren’t cases anymore. They’re individuals with often complex matrixes of physical, emotional, social, economic and spiritual needs. If the old pill for every ill philosophy is no longer serving you, you may want to be evaluated in the more comprehensive system of holistic care.
You could discover a hidden food sensitivity through kinesiology, improve your autoimmune condition with Craniosacral therapy, relieve your back pain with Bowen technique or find a flower essence to improve your mood. Whatever it is, you’re bound to learn something new about your body, its natural state of wellness, and the myriad modalities designed to guide it back home.

There is a synergistic effect when you pursue multiple elements of wellbeing. We’re here to help you bring a sense of adventure and discovery into wellness in the very best way possible - by celebrating the highest parts of the human spirit and highlighting what it truly means to live an inspired life.

Wherever you decide to start, we can recommend a great therapist, centre, event and more. You can try anything from massage in Cape Town, yoga in Cape Town and Pilates in Cape Town to reflexology in Johannesburg, health retreats in South Africa and finding the best life coach in South Africa.
