Healix puts focus on alternative healing

Aspen Times Staff Report

With work on their third issue under way, the producers of Healix Magazine are hoping to spread their wings and expand coverage while staying true to the new publication’s focus on alternative healing practices.

When Healix’s publisher, Mally Strong, came to Aspen six months ago, she was surprised that a community with so many practitioners of holistic medicine had no centralized place to offer or introduce their services.

“I looked around and there was nothing here,” Strong said. “I think nationally more people are looking into the benefits of alternative methods of healing and in Aspen, the culture is a lot more open than in other places.”

Out of the starting gates, Healix basically provided a forum for people in the alternative healing fields to elaborate on the potential benefits of their services. But in future issues, Strong hopes to include an arts page, an environmental page, and an education page.

In addition, Strong sees Healix as a place that could sponsor a dialogue to contrast the approaches between traditional and alternative medicine.

“In traditional medicine, the patient surrenders control whereas in holistic medicine, it’s a more independent process where the patient is ready to make informed choices. I think that’s an important basic difference,” Strong said.
