In the current era, anxiety and stress have stemmed into our life deeply. Mental health problems have also pushed us to seek out alternative treatments, take counselling and also work on our lifestyle choices. Even in the case of physical ailment, a point comes when recovery is more at a mental level than the physical body.
This is where healing practices work at a cellular level relieving our mind, emotions and energies of accumulated toxicity. We are aware of how everything is energy and how vibrations can impact the cell structure affecting our mood and even our health.
The most basic breakdown of this can be attributed to how being in nature or among animals we feel calmer. Similarly, a violent and chaotic environment impacts us long after we have left the place.
Healing through energy work be it reiki, sound or other along with practices like yoga and meditation have been around for years. Even scientific researchers have backed these practices such as one done by Dressen LJ on the effects of Reiki.
Also, sound healing has been practised by ancient cultures of Egypt, India, Mayans and more along with the shamans of South America and Central Asia. Such healing techniques work on a multitude of levels- physical, emotional and mental which allows for holistic health eliminating all side effects.
While modern medications are necessary to combat various diseases, they only work on a physical level leaving emotional and mental health completely unaddressed. It is hence important to work on yourself and heal at a deeper level.
Sometimes unaddressed trauma and issues like anxiety and depression can make one physically ill as they break down the body’s natural immunity. In such a scenario, it is vital to strengthen your mind by adopting yoga and meditation in your lifestyle. Just like seeking counselling is now an acceptable part of life leading to a healthier you, so are forms of alternate healing. Putting yourself together after a long illness, be it mental or physical, becomes much easier if you take the assistance of a healer.
