What is CURA Holistic Health and Massage Center and where does the name CURA come from?

At CURA Holistic Health and Massage Center we encourage our clients to be an active participant in their treatment and health care.

Let's start with some history of the word CURA:

  1. The word CURE comes from the Latin CURA meaning care, concern or attention. The current use of the word cure is believed to reflect the belief that the right "care,concern and attention were tantamount to a cure".
  2. And then there is the English word, CURE, the holy grail of medicine. It is derived from the Latin, CURA, meaning to care or to be concerned.
  3. Cura - (Latin) meaning: management, administration, care, concern, charge.
  4. Cura - (Latin) thoughtfulness.
  5. Cura - (In Roman mythology) `Cura` was the goddess who created humans from clay.
  6. Etymology: Middle English cure "care of souls", from early French cure (same meaning), from Latin cura "spiritual charge of souls," from earlier cura "care, healing" --related to ACCURATE, CURATE, CURIOUS, SECURE

Based on the above definitions we feel that the answer to the question:
