Craniosacral Therapy, Iridology, Feng Shui, EMF Balancing
Technique, Reflexology, Reiki, Dousing and Hypnotherapy are just a few
of the modalities being brought to light with the alternative medicine
boom. People are looking for something more than what western medicine
has to offer. We live in a time where practitioners do not need
invasive surgery to find imbalances and challenges. The answers are in
the crystals of the feet, the sway of the pendulum, and the secrets of
the mind. The wonderful self-revelations derived from any number of
alternative sessions heads you on the path to growth and discovery.
With so many new modalities coming to light and ancient ones
experiencing a rebirth, one might find it difficult to choose what is
best for a specific situation. Fortunately, each modality offers its
own benefits. Each offers its own insights.
Another wonderful possibility that occurs as our choices expand is
being able to combine treatments form different sources for a more
complete healing effect. I have seen amazing results with the combined
use of Hypnotherapy and Reiki, or the combined efforts of Muscle
Testing and Chiropractic. With the combination of two or more
treatments the synergistic results can be powerful.
Finding practitioners can, at times, be tricky. My search for the
closest Rolfer led me two hours away. I could not imagine driving two
hours after having such an intense bodywork session. On the other hand,
some fields are saturated with practitioners. You can experience
several massage therapists to find the correct fit for you. Every
practitioner has different talents and it is wonderful to experience as
many as you choose to have a more complete knowledge of what is
offered. If you should have an experience that did not live up to your
expectations, try the same modality with a different practitioner.
When the time comes to look for a qualified practitioner, I generally
head to the associations that teach or insure them. These associations
tend to have guidelines that need to be followed in order to gain
admittance. Another wonderful way to find exceptional practitioners is
through word of mouth. Do not be afraid to question a practitioner's
qualifications or to get a second opinion. Above all, enjoy the new
experience on your journey of self-discovery. The
value of preventative medicine is immense. To be proactive in your own
health care will empower you and will train you to connect with your
body. When one is connected with one's physiology, it is easy to avoid
serious illness. The mind is an amazing thing. It is also very talented
at convincing us that we are in better condition than we really are.
Our bodies, on the other hand, are built to function-not deceive. Our
bodies do not lie. Despite what our minds tell us, if we ignore the
body long enough, the voice of the body will be loud and clear.
