The Wholistic Healing Institute, within Munroe Regional’s Pastoral Care department, works to strengthen the emotional and spiritual layers of physical health to create whole person health. This mission embraces the life affirming opportunities that creative expression offers to cope with symptoms and disease.

Central to the concept of uniting body, mind and spirit are the healing components found within the arts.
