Holistic Health San Luis Obispo CA & Woodstock NY

Nurturing Your Well-being Through Holistic Healing

We offer holistic healing services to complement traditional physical therapy techniques. These include Reiki, Acupuncture, and Tuning Fork Sound Therapy. These services focus on treating the whole person – mind, body, and spirit.

What is Holistic Healing? 

Holistic health is based on the idea that all aspects of our being are connected and affect each other. If your mental health is low, it can negatively impact your physical health. Therefore, holistic healing is a comprehensive approach to medicine that focuses on your wellness as a whole. You might also hear this approach called integrative medicine because it integrates every element of your health.

At Megan Mullin Physical Therapy, we fully believe in treating the whole person, not just the symptoms. In addition to our PT services that focus on your physical wellness, such as manual therapy, we also offer multiple holistic healing treatments. These seek to boost your emotional, mental, physical, and spiritual health.

How Does Holistic Healing Work?

Holistic treatments work in various ways to improve wellness. Many of these treatments work by stimulating your body’s natural healing abilities. Holistic treatments often use stress relief and relaxation to treat both the mind and body, promoting a peaceful mental state, lowered heart rate, and better sleep.

Holistic healing can be a standalone treatment for overall health and wellness, or it can be combined with other physical therapy treatments for optimal results in treating a specific condition or concern. Incorporating holistic healing into treatments for muscle tension and chronic pain is often helpful.

Benefits of Holistic Healing

Since it focuses on improving your overall wellness, holistic treatments can have numerous benefits. These may be subtle but still impactful on your quality of life. The exact results will depend on which treatment you receive, but some common benefits of holistic healing include:

  • Relaxation and reduced stress
  • Less muscle tension
  • Pain relief
  • Lowered anxiety and depression
  • Better sleep
  • Improved energy levels
  • Lowered heart rate and blood pressure
  • Reduced inflammation
  • Boosted healing

Is Holistic Healing Right for Me?

Anyone can safely undergo holistic treatments. Treatments like Reiki and Tuning Fork Sound Therapy are completely non-invasive. Techniques like these that reduce stress and enhance well-being can benefit anyone, boosting mental, physical, and spiritual health. Patients typically leave the treatment feeling refreshed and relaxed.

However, remember that these holistic healing methods are not a treatment for medical conditions or injuries. They are most effective as complementary to your physical therapy or other medical treatments.

Holistic Treatments

Our physical therapists at Megan Mullin PT offer multiple holistic treatment techniques. We may recommend one or more of these alone or with other PT services, such as cupping therapy.


Reiki is a Japanese energy healing technique that uses gentle touch to transfer and increase the flow of universal energy to the patient. The goal is to help stimulate the body’s natural healing abilities. Reiki is similar to acupuncture but without the needles. Our Usui Reiki Masters detect and clear energy blocks and chakra imbalances in their patients. 

Reiki effectively activates the parasympathetic nervous system, resulting in reduced heart rate, reduced blood pressure, and increased heart rate variability. This complementary therapy can be safely implemented alongside all other medical and therapeutic techniques. It is also available remotely in the comfort of your own home.


Acupuncture is a traditional Chinese medicine technique that involves inserting thin needles into specific points on the body. This stimulates the body’s natural healing abilities. Our experienced physical therapists offer acupuncture as complementary to traditional physical therapy techniques. 

 Acupuncture is effective in treating a variety of conditions, such as chronic pain, migraines, and anxiety. Patients may experience reduced pain and stress, improved energy levels, reduced inflammation, improved sleep, and an overall sense of well-being through acupuncture. 

Tuning Fork Sound Therapy

Tuning Fork Sound Therapy is a gentle yet powerful modality that helps treat the body and mind to restore inner balance and health. It works with the nervous system, the tissues, and the more subtle energies of the body. Furthermore, the technique is deeply relaxing and restoring and can offer long-term benefits. Dr. Megan Mullin uses this therapy to help patients reduce pain and stress, increase relaxation, accelerate healing, improve energy levels, lower depression and anxiety, and improve mood and overall sense of well-being.
