There are lots of people in the world who want to practice healing in their communities. When we think of healing, we often think of doctors and nurses who save lives every day. Healing comes in a lot of different forms and there are ways to practice healing without ever entering the world of medicine.
Massage Is Everyone’s Friend
Massage therapy is a fantastic way to help folks heal in a multitude of ways. It can help assist physical therapy patients with tight muscles and keep their physical therapy from leaving them in exhaustive pain. People who are stressed should seek out massage therapy. Consistent tight muscles leave us feeling uncomfortable all the time and contribute to long term health problems down the road. Massage for cancer patients can help ease the effects of chemotherapy. Patients with anxiety issues can lower their frequency of anxiety and panic attacks with massage. Bottom line, if we get massages more often, we can feel better more often and help us deal with life and other health issues.
The important thing is making sure you get the right equipment and education. Learn what makes a good massage table! Without a good table, your clients won’t get the full benefit of massage. Make sure you check with your state laws on licensing and follow all procedures to secure that licensing. Within a year or two you can easily set up shop and start offering your services.
Yoga Benefits All
Yoga may seem like a new-age fad but the reality is, yoga provides plenty of health benefits for all age groups. Suffer from chronic pain? Yoga can help alleviate some of that pain and make your day-to-day a bit more bearable. Insomniac? Yep, yoga can help you relax and release the right endorphins to improve your sleep patterns. How about blood pressure? Yes! Yoga can reduce your blood pressure into healthier ranges. That is especially important for folks that want to get off their blood pressure medicines. And the benefits don’t stop there:
- Improve your flexibility
- Increase muscle tone
- Increase muscle strength
- Improve breathing
- Improve your energy levels
- Maintain a healthy metabolism
- Lose weight
And the mental benefits are impressive as well. Yoga practitioners often report they have an easier time managing their stress and often have a significantly happier outlook on life. The ultimate attraction to yoga is that it is perfect for even the newest of newcomers. Before opening your yoga studio, do get the proper training and check local and state laws for licensure and permits to practice.
One of the most impressive aspects of healing without practicing medicine is offering those services to those who do the medical work we all rely on. Physicians and nurses are often working hard and long hours and hold onto the stress of their work. One cannot help but feel emotions after facing some of the worst medical situations in their careers. And physicians and nurses are reportedly the worst at taking care of themselves, often sacrificing their own health for caring for their patients. Having a resource to care for them in return helps their mental and physical state. It also helps the community by keeping them in their positions longer than if they were burning out.
Healers are always needed and we hope you join the masses to find ways to support your community through healing!
