Holistic wellness focuses on the maintenance of the people’s optimal body health and spiritual balance through utilizing combinations of traditionally accepted concepts and spiritual health philosophies. Apart from relying on the use of the traditional Western and Chinese medicine, modern people now pay more attention to complementary ways in fostering body, spiritual and environmental health especially in helping them to recover from losses, failures, tragedies and psychological disorders. These complementary ways include the Tao of Incense, traditional Fengshui and Bazi applications, Zen and Buddhist counselling, aromatherapy etc.
