Carol is a member of the American Holistic Nurses Association. According to the Association, a holistic nurse is a legally licensed nurse who takes a holistic (mind-body-spirit-emotion) approach to the practice of traditional nursing. Holistic nursing is based on a body of knowledge, evidence-based research, sophisticated skill sets, defined standards of practice, and a philosophy of living and being that is grounded in caring, relationship, and interconnectedness.
Holistic nurses use complementary, alternative, and integrative therapies that enhance the body, mind, emotion, and spirit to foster healing, health, wholeness, and well-being. Holistic nurses regularly employ imagery, visualization, relaxation, deep-breathing techniques, stress management, aromatherapy, and subtle energy therapies for patients in hospitals and private practice.
Carol uses a holistic approach to health and wellness, by applying creative, integrative practices to promote personal well being.
