The oldest form of healing is touch – the laying of hands is a human instinct. A mother and her child.
Hands on healing or manual therapy was born from our natural desire to help each other find relief from pain. From ancient times, humans have developed advanced techniques and methods to assist each other in healing and returning to a balanced state of optimal health. Due to the nature of human existence and inevitable trauma, our bodies become physically blocked. This blockage manifests itself in innumerable forms from muscle fatigue to serious illness.
Hands on healing methods involve manipulating the body and or mind to encourage our innate life force to flow – to remove the blockages. Chiropractors move bones. Acupuncturists move Qi. Massage therapists move muscle and connective tissue. Therapists and coaches remove negative beliefs and thoughts. They all help to remove the blocks that inhibit our growth towards a radiant life.
Learning to heal yourself and others is one of the most gratifying and useful endeavors. It’s an ancient sacred act – there is something quite simple and honest about it.
