Alternative healing has been around for over a hundred years and is still just as important today as it was on the first day that it was acknowledged. Many people feel as if modern medicine doesn’t work as well, and doctors just administer pills and send you on your way without really considering all of the effects that the pills may have on the patient. Sometimes, the effects outweigh the original problem. Alternative medicine is a practice that helps people achieve a stable physical and mental being without using pharmaceuticals.
Alternative healing helps to relax the patients’ mind while utilizing techniques that will help the patients’ individual symptoms through therapy and other natural remedies. Practitioners believe that alternative healing first works on the patients’ subconscious mind, helping them ease into the therapy process. With the use of heavy machines and medicines, patients usually feel the opposite and are stressed during their traditional doctor’s visits.
Therapy is typically person and condition specific, but eight main categories of alternative healing are acknowledged.
- Acupuncture: Practitioners stimulate certain points of the body by inserting tiny thin needles through the skin.
- Acupressure: Practitioners use their fingers to press on key points that stimulate natural therapeutic abilities.
- Crystal Healing: Different crystals are used to affect spiritual, mental, physical, and emotional conditions as they possess different energies and properties.
- Aroma Therapy: Natural oils are taken from bark, leaves, flowers, and other plant parts in order to enhance well-being through scent. The oils are applied to the skin and travel through the bloodstream.
- Reiki: Practitioners use their palms to go over the patient’s body and facilitates the process of therapy. It helps with stress reduction and relaxation.
- Music Therapy: Patients listen to a CD of a modified range that is meant to specifically treat their condition. Sounds emit different energies from the patient.
- Art Therapy: Patients work with different colors and supplies that are customized to treat them, working with their subconscious mind.
- Salt Therapy: The patient breathes in salty air to mitigate stress and symptoms of certain conditions.
