There are many types of healing practices today that one does not learn in medical school. Although most of these practices are viewed as just recreational services, they do help you maintain your health in many different ways. Some of these healing practices have been discussed below.
One of these healing practices is meditation. This is nothing new, it has been talked about at almost every platform due to its numerous benefits for your body and mind. By doing away with negative and self-depressing thoughts and replacing them with new, positive and self-empowering thoughts, meditation helps one gain control over their thoughts. The meditation helps to reduce anxiety, stress, sleep disorders, improve physical healing and even the risk of getting heart attacks and strokes since a healthy mind leads to a healthy body.
The second practice would be visualization. Just as suggested by its name, visualization is a little like mediation but it requires one to create a mental picture of what they want to achieve; if it is a healthy body for example, or picturing the healing of their cells if it is a sick patient, or even if it is a healthy lifestyle. Through determined thoughts and actions, visualization will trigger the mind to work towards achieving these goals, therefore, leading to a real world manifestation of these thoughts, it is like healing though the speed of thought.
Another practice is using emotional freedom techniques. This technique is popularly known as acupressure. It involves incorporation of affirmation whereby one repeats positive and inspiring statements over and over as the facilitator taps the acupressure points on one’s body. The benefits of acupressure is it helps to relieve stress, depression, anxiety, pain, helps one overcome limiting beliefs and it can also be use a post-traumatic stress disorder therapy.
Similar to acupressure, acupuncture is also another healing practice. Acupuncture differs from acupressure such in acupuncture, the facilitator uses needles or electric stimulation to apply the pressure to the pressure points on the body, the needles being the most common, while in acupressure, the facilitator uses their hands or elbows or fingers. The rest of the two procedures is quite similar since in both, after the application of pressure to the pressure points and then releasing it, one gets relieved of chronic pain, depression, stress, anxiety, and it can even be used as post-traumatic stress disorder therapy.
Since you are now knowledgeable in some of the alternative healing practices available today, you should try to improve your overall wellness by trying out some of them, especially to improve the wellness of the mind because of the pressure that the ever busy current corporate world exerts on us.
