The Alternative Therapy to Alternative Medicine. I believe that The Usui Reiki System, Chakra Healing/Balancing, Pendulum Healing, Aromatherapy, Reflexology, Kinesiology, Acupressure. Acupuncture, Prana, Colour and Sound Therapy …. are all alternative therapies within CAM (Complementary/Alternative Medicine).
Imagine a large diamond. When you are looking at it, you see all the multitude of facets, that makes its shape and look by design. Holistic means the wholesome body and this includes Spirituality, Emotion and Physical Body. The term Health Care is usually associated with conventional Medicine. Conventional being Health Care Providers like your Medical Doctor, Physiotherapy, Psychotherapy, Social Therapy…. These are the facets of your Holistic Diamond. One diamond with many facets. Health Care come with many facets. I do not favour the terms Alternative “Medicine” or Complementary “Medicine”, as the word Medicine is associated with something that requires chemically, pharmaceutically engineered prescriptions. Medicine is associated only with conventional medicine, but not with Health Care. If we look at all of the facets as a whole, then we are looking at one Holistic Health Care = one Diamond.
