During my acitvity in the field of natural remedies and techniques, I often get in touch with people asking me for magical solutions for any kind of problems.
Unfortunately, many people disguise themselves as healers for every ailment, be it physical or psychological.
I am not one of these. Every time I learn about a new technique, I am very cautious.
I do not eat frog tails or snakes’ tongues and I do not believe that a massage or a certain position are enough to cure a disease.
Yet there are some natural remedies, some physical activities (e.g. Tai-chi) and massages and stimulations that can have a strong impact on our physical and psychological well-being and solve some discomforts.
I’ve always been curious about acupuncture, a method that was unknown to the medical western culture until a few decades ago.
The possibility to have access to our body’s internal parts noninvasively is fascinating. Through the acupuncture points, we can improve our health in many ways.
All these points are situated along the meridians and, although this has always been a much used treatment in the Traditional Chinese Medicine, experiments have only recently shown that there actually is a third “circulation system”. Isn’t that incredible?
The same points can be stimulated through pressure or tapping and these techniques can be very useful as “domestic first aid” for colds, headache or upset stomach too.
When stimulated, some points can give relief in stressful situations. These points are on the head/face and the upper part of the torso.
At the beginning of the 90’s in America, some experiments were made combining therapy with the stimulation of these points and the results led to the elaboration of the EFT principles.
The basic concept of the EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) is to free our experiences from an excessive emotional burden, which in the end can be the culprit not only of psychological problems but also of physical discomfort.
As I wrote in the introduction “This makes me feel good!” I like Nick Ortner’s The Tapping Solution.
This technique has many advantages: it can be easily learned, it is very helpful for stress-management and it can help us find clarity in our experiences.
There are many sites and videos where this technique is explained, but if you want you can send me a private message on Facebook / Linda Jett (Stillrocking) and I will be happy to give any further information.
In conclusion, my well-being formula is:
Have a nice week!
