Many different types of healing practices are available 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. Discussed below are some of these healing practices.
One of these healing practices is meditation. Having been talked about on almost every platform due to its numerous benefits for your body and mind, meditation is nothing new. 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. Since a healthy mind leads to a healthy body, the meditation process helps to reduce anxiety, improve physical healing, reduce stress and sleeping disorders and even reduce the risk of getting heart attacks and strokes.
The next healing practice is visualization. Visualization, just as suggested by its name, is almost like meditation but it requires one to create a mental picture of what they want; for example if it is a healthy body, or picturing the healing of their cells for the sick patients or even 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.
Using emotional freedom techniques is the third practice. This technique can also be called acupressure as it is popularly known. 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. Apart from his difference, the rest is quite similar since by the application of the pressure and releasing tit, one gets relieved of chronic pain, stress, anxiety, depression and it can also be used as a therapy for post-traumatic stress disorder.
