Journal of Holistic Healthcare

Our journals have until now only been available for members. We are still in the process of uploading articles and journals into a searchable archive but we are live so try it out. The journals are available to purchase at £9.50 and articles at £3.50. Editorials and William House’s column are freely available for download. In the future we would like to see more articles freely available. If you would like to help with this aim see the front page on how you can donate.


We will slowly be moving membership services from our old Groupspaces site to this site. You will need new log-in details to use this site for accessing the journals and articles freely. Please bear with us in the transition. Download journals from Groupspaces

About the Journal

The Journal of Holistic Healthcare is a UK based journal circulated to members of the BHMA, focusing on evidence based practice and the practical implications of research in holistic health and social care. Its target audience is the full range of healthcare practitioners, CAM practitioners, health service providers, policy makers, commissioners and researchers in the field.

Anyone interested in Holistic Healthcare can become a member of the BHMA in order to gain access to journals. A sample journal is also freely available to download. Members can access both the current issue of the Journal on-line as well as back issues dating back to May 2004. 

The Journal typically includes detailed case examples of successful holistic practice and services, research findings and methodologies, evidence of effective practice, and commentaries on policy and service developments in the field. Our aim is to establish a high-quality source of information and good practice examples for anyone interested in holistic health, including policy-makers, practitioners and lay people. Our intention is to link theory to practice. The Journal is intended to be accessible and readable as well as challenging. Key articles will link theory and research to practice and policy development. Contributions from a variety of disciplines are welcome.
