All the therapies are “holistic”. Meaning they treat the body as a whole. The mind, body and spirit. Traditional allopathic medicine tends to treat the symptom and not the underlying cause.
They aim to treat the body as a whole, physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. If the body is out of balance, dis-ease occurs. e.g. On a physical level, you sprain an ankle so the body has to compensate thus putting the rest of your body out of kilter. It only takes a phone call with some kind of bad news upsetting our mental and emotional well being. Ongoing stress and anxiety is one of the major causes of illness and dis-ease.
If the therapies only create deep relaxation, they are doing a great deal of good.
These therapies, on their own, are a wonderful way of getting in touch with yourself and to take responsibility for yourself. Deeply relaxing, gentle and at the same time powerful. They compliment traditional medicine and can be a great support to the body when on medication after surgery, and even terminal illness. It brings about a sense of peace, being able to cope. Can be life changing
