Does it ever feel like the doctor just doesn't understand? It's entirely possible that he or she doesn't. Modern science and medical practices are only a few hundred years old, but holistic healing has been successfully treating injuries and illnesses since ancient times. There is evidence that ancient Egyptians, Greeks, Romans and many other cultures all used traditional healing techniques such as energy healing, crystal healing, massage, hydrotherapy, aromatherapy, herbs, etc.
Touch is our most primitive sense. That is why when you kick the coffee table the first thing that you do is to reach down and touch your bruised shin which actually helps the healing process. We are over 70% water, and it is vitally important to our health that the fluids within the body can move freely to lubricate and cleanse our cells. Massage helps that, as does Myofascial Release. When the muscles and fascia remain contracted the blood, lymph, and other fluids can't flow freely and it leads to disease. The fascia connects every cell in the body, but modern science does not regard it as an important part of the body. Yet it, and the ground substance within it, is what lubricates all the parts of the body to allow movement. When the fascia contracts it has a tensile strength of approximately 2,000 pounds per square inch. No wonder you are in pain, that is like having a classic Volkswagen Beetle on top of you! The other tricky part of why modern medicine doesn't see fascia as important is that it does not show up in any of the standard tests (x-rays, MRI’s, CAT scans, etc.)
Reiki, crystals, and other energy healing techniques help the body switch from "fight or flight", which most of us are stuck in, to "rest and digest" mode which is when the body's natural ability to heal itself kicks in. When we are under stress our body goes into protect mode. Stress is not just running late and stuck in traffic or the night before a major report is due. It can also be not getting enough sleep or eating too much processed foods. But, no matter the cause, the body always reacts to what it perceives to be stress in the same way; by switching the autonomic nervous system from "rest and digest" to "fight or flight". When under stress energy is focused on the core to protect our vital organs. But, too much energy leads to muscle contractions. Reiki and crystals draw the energy out of the hypercontractions so they can relax and return to balance and health.
Holistic healing practitioners seek to relieve dis-ease by helping clients to understand their stress, how their bodies are reacting to the stress, and the aches, pains, and illnesses that are the physical manifestations of stress.
