Many of us have experienced frustration when it comes to treating nagging mental or physical ailments. In some cases, the inability to find a cure results in further stress and complications.
Even after years of consuming allopathic medicines, consulting multiple doctors and undergoing diagnostic tests, people are not fully cured and endure much pain and suffering.
Benefits of Alternative Healing
In the last couple of decades, the shift to alternative healing therapies has been significant. Unconventional yet effective, alternative medicine and/or healing therapies such as naturopathy, sound therapy, reiki and acupuncture have taken centre stage. These have proven to be curative alternatives without any side effects. This by far is the biggest reason why more and more people are turning to alternative healing therapies. Secondly, in addition to treating particular ailments, alternative healing therapies have a holistic healing effect.
For example, Yoga – right from the traditional Patanjali form to modern forms such as Yin Yoga- has proven health and wellness benefits in keeping disease and ailments at bay. Along with weight management Yoga controls anxiety, makes practitioners more alert and feel energetic and youthful.
Aromatherapy is widely used as a healing therapy for insomnia. It does not have any nasty side effects, unlike sleeping medication which can even be fatal if not administered properly. Aromatherapy is safe, effective and inexpensive. Aromatherapy is practised by simply sniffing the oils, applying them on the body, or particular parts such as the forehead in case of sinuses and headaches, or mixing them with water and putting them in aroma diffusers to create an aura of wellness. Aroma oils include sublime fragrances such as ylang-ylang, bergamot, lavender etc. which are extremely pleasing to the senses.
Tibetan Bowl Sound Therapy
Tibetan Bowl Sound therapy has gained global recognition as an alternative to traditional medicine and methods to treat stress and other mental ailments. The sounds are produced by a mixing action of a wooden stick in the Tibetan bowl, also known as Himalayan and singing bowls. The sound waves are said to have healing properties and are being widely used to supplement other alternative healing therapies such as spa treatments, yoga, meditation and more.
According to VeryWellMind,
“…vibrations of a singing bowl can produce beneficial changes in the body by reducing stress, “harmonizing” the cells, and “balancing the body’s energy system. Some also claim that Tibetan singing bowls can stimulate the immune system and produce beneficial changes in brain waves.”
Although these findings are still to be proven scientifically, the fact that more and more people are turning to Tibetan bowl sound therapy indicates that it is making a positive impact in their lives. The same can be said for alternative healing therapies as a whole.
