Mind and Body Treatments That Actually Work
Now that alternative medicines and treatments are becoming more popular, there are plenty of questions about them. The biggest and most question about them all is “Do they work?”. Well the best way to know that is either to find out what others are saying or try it for yourself.
One of the best well known treatments that work is Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction. It can help alleviate several things such as stress, chronic tiredness and depression. It can also help increase learning capability and memory. It is a form of meditation that includes refocusing your attention and your breaths.
Reiki is another great mind and body treatment worth trying. It was actually derived from a practice done by Buddhist for over 2,000 years. It is referred to as laying on of hands, which is pretty self-explanatory. There is no manipulation or invasive touching, it is simply placing hands on certain parts on body. To normalize or renew the person’s life energy. Sometimes a practioner will hover instead of touching as well. It is all based on the biofield energy theory.
Yoga is something that many do use and is a combination of things. The main aspect being meditation which is what ties into the spiritual healing aspect the most. It is changing your thoughts into positive thoughts, putting yourself into a calming state of mind. Then also including breathing patterns that help aid that as well as promoting health throughout the body. The last component is physical poses that help the body as a whole. After all a healthy mind and body go hand in hand.
Another great one is music therapy, many of us actually already do this to an extent. Many of us listen to music already and typically adjust our music to our moods. Well, music therapy isn’t that different, different types of music are used for different needs. Music can influence many different things such as our physical, thinking, emotional, social ability and our well-being as a whole. A music therapist can help choose the proper type of music for the type of therapy needed.
