Wholistic Health Alliance is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization (pending approval).
Wholistic Health Alliance (WHA) has been founded with the vision of providing a platform for holistic health practitioners to come together under one umbrella, fostering collaborations, building stronger networks and enabling greater synergy with the community. WHA aims to help build healthier communities, through education and information dissemination about simple tools for primary prevention and holistic solutions to health and wellness.
WHA provides a robust Directory to assist your search for a holistic practitioner of your choice effectively, in your own geographical area. Our bigger goal however is to strive to be integrated in the main stream healthcare so as to improve consumer access and insurance coverage for the services rendered by holistic practitioners. We have already been holding free seminars and workshops in our community, thanks to our generous Practitioner members. Please check our calendar for upcoming talks. And do browse through our News and Events pages for informative articles and archives of past events.
Let us join hands and work together to build a healthier world, for us and our children!

The W in the Wholistic:
If you are wondering whether we got the spelling of the word holistic wrong, I am happy to share that it is not an error. There is a reason you see the W there. W stands for Whole - it denotes We as against I. We want our Alliance to be the 'Whole' and the 'We' where all likeminded health professionals can join hands for the greater good of the community!
Educate, engage and empower our communities to be healthier.
Our Mission is to create a strong network of holistic health practitioners which is intimately connected with the community, and to build bridges with the mainstream health care, with the consumer at the center of all our endeavors.
