Massage School Students are Nutty about Holistic Nutrition!

At Healing Hands School of Holistic Health (Healing Hands), our Faculty understands the importance of good nutrition and offers several classes on the topic.  Among these is Holistic Nutrition, taught by multi-course Instructor, Shana Lipner-Grover.   “The Holistic approach to health-care means taking all aspects of a person’s life into account when assessing their overall health”, said Shana.  “These include the physical, psychological, social, and Spiritual.  This course highlights how food provides the energy we need to move our bodies, and the nutrients essential for its growth, maintenance and repair.  If you want a positive attitude, healthy muscles and bones, and an abundance of energy, it is essential to understand Holistic Nutrition”, she added.

The goal of Holistic Nutrition is to help Students create healthy nutritional plans to build a strong foundation for long term health and wellness.  Students can use these plans for themselves, their families and their clients. In Shana’s course, students examine the basic nutrients in food including: vitamins, carbohydrates, fatty acids, enzymes, and amino acids. They explores how the energy of food ingested affects our own energy, and how food choices can impact the mind/body connection and over-all health. Students study the Digestive System and gain an understanding of how food is processed and utilized within the body. The course also includes the preparation and sharing of delicious, healthy recipes.  Upon completion Students will be equipped with the knowledge to customize the optimal nutrition program for themselves and their clients.

Holistic Nutrition is a 60-hour course that Shana teaches at all three Healing Hands classroom locations.  Her next course will be held at the Escondido campus (125 W Mission Ave #212) from 6pm to 10pm starting August 24th and running through October 12th.  The Registration deadline for Holistic Nutrition is August 10, 2018.
