I think everyone understand what is included in traditional treatments. I believe anyone that has been using all the Pain,nerve, and muscle medications for years at one time looks and hopes for a different way.
I've always figure that over 30+ years I have had taken more chemical based treatments that I do have to wonder could that be causing any long term damage?
In the 2 1/2 years I have been going for Deep Tissue Massage, The Thai 'expert' who works on me always talks about
Body Balance, a sense of Harmony to needs to be achieved without chemicals I have begun to understand and believe this more and more. This may sound so simple, but by just entering the professional building that this person works in, immediately starts to relax me with the aroma of essential oils. Then walking into his office, with a huge fish tank, Tai Meditation music and cascading desk waterfalls, I become more relaxed. Because of this, I started with Aroma therapy using essential oils, I do try nightly relaxing times listening to that music, lights off, candles on. I feel better when that is over.
So where does Holistic Medicine really fit in?
Holistic medicine is a system of health care which fosters a cooperative relationship among all those involved, leading towards optimal attainment of the physical, mental emotional, social and spiritual aspects of health.
I know from reading so many posts here that there are several members that totally believe in this approach.
The mind is such a powerful force, can it really take over and control your pain as you did using standard medications?
