Holistic by definition is "characterized by comprehension of the parts of something as intimately interconnected and explicable only by reference to the whole."
New additions and new techniques are being utilized to bring about a more holistic experience for grooming. Each thing alone is something small, but when all are working together it can really make a difference. Setting the mood for the space helps keep the pet parents in a positive state (which the pet feeds off of), helps the groomer stay in a positive state (which the pet feeds off of), and can help the pet stay in a positive state. Similar techniques are used for creating space for Reiki or grooming, for people and animals.
