Often people seek alternative therapies at significant times in their lives – when they reach milestones or have specific challenges. Perhaps going down other routes hasn’t worked and has left them seeking answers from places they had previously not considered. Fertility, physical illness and emotional pain are all issues that may bring you to consider alternative therapies. Some people come to considering therapy from a different place – they just feel curious or simply have a sense that they need to try alternate therapies. But, with so many therapies on offer, how do you know what therapy to choose? From reflexology to Reiki or even kinesiology – there are so many different therapies and treatments and often they seem to treat the same or similar things and appear to simply come at the problem from different angles.
If you are in the situation of feeling unsure about what therapy to explore, then I hope this blog post will help you. Here are my thoughts on alternative therapies.
Firstly, I want to emphasise the fact that I strongly believe that every therapy is amazing. I myself, my very first treatments was Craniosacral and Kinesiology. During these years I have tried quite a few – reflexology, Havening, crystal healing to name a few and the one that still resonates with me the most is Kinesiology because I find it very tangible and works well with my nature. Furthermore, at the end of last year I had my personal home energetically cleansed with Geomancy and it transformed the whole atmosphere and it helped me focus more as well as make my husband returning to his own natural-self. This brought me also to attend a intensive week training course on Geomancy that I will talk about in my next blog and offer along my Kinesiology and Homeo Botanical Therapy.
I am an advocate of a variety of therapies. Obviously each therapy takes a different route and has a different method. For example, Homeopathy is a holistic medicine, which uses specially prepared, highly diluted substances with the aim of triggering the body’s own healing mechanisms. People that suffer with insomnia or IBS may decide to see a homeopath but they could see a Reiki practitioner as it can also help with these problems. But, of course the method is very different as Reiki is administered by laying on hands and works with energy flowing through the chakras and meridians. Equally the person may want to see a crystal healer who can also provide healing by drawing on the healing powers of crystals. All of these therapies are beneficial and can provide healing. There are multiple types of healings but it is important to find what therapy may suit you best and therefore gain positive outcomes. For me, what is important is the integrity of the practitioner and even her/his personal journey. My own life experiences have brought me to where I am today and this is something I shared in my recent blog post
What someone has experienced can really shape him or her as a person and this brings me on to the next point…
Another important aspect is the relationship with your healer; for a therapy to work well I strongly believe that there must a mutual trust between practitioner and client.
At the start of my journey I thought that one practitioner would be able to address all my issues; along the way I learned that practitioners have different talents, skills and way to connect to you at physical and soul level.
Often practitioners are recommended through word of mouth and this is important but my advice is that you make sure you do your research – find out as much as you can about the practice and the practitioner. Most importantly, feel if it connects to your inner soul but never discount talking to them and having an initial phone call or consultation – if you research and it feels right there is no reason not to try a practise that you never heard from. What I would also advise is that you may want to try different ones until you find what resonates with you mostly.
If this resonates with you and you would like to find out more about the kinesiology I offer, please don’t hesitate to get in touch Barbara@equilibriumvitae.net and have a chat.
