Your business also may support healing by buying products that have a positive subatomic imprint. Fair trade products are a good example of products with a positive imprint, with the company that does not allow workers in a bad mood to pick rose petals as an extreme example of protecting a product from negative imprints. Additionally, camaraderie among management and staff, complimentary actions, and the reinforcement of positive behavior all create a positive imprint, which will then be transferred to your clients and their skin.

Holistic remedies

Research and clinical experience will continue to guide you in your holistic treatments. The body-mind-energetic spirit is complex and never offers a clear path, so a good philosophy in developing holistic treatment is to address every aspect of healing with a full-spectrum of physical, emotional, energetic and spiritual diversity. Additionally, your ingredients must also be holistic, a point that will be further discussed in Part III of this series, “Adapting A Whole Food Philosophy to Beauty Treatments.”
