Many of these techniques are still in use today. Recently, alternative forms of healing have seen a dramatic increase in western life. Here are some of the most well-known techniques.
Tai Chi is an ancient form of moving meditation that originally developed in China. It focuses on being mindful of the breath and the body in every movement, focusing on the flow of Qi, or life energy, through the body. Studies have found frequent practice of Tai Chi to be conducive to maintaining proper bone density and joint health, along with other age-related issues.
Like Tai Chi, acupuncture also helps to regulate the flow of Qi throughout the body. Acupuncture has been proven to have many medical benefits such as reduced back pain and lower instances of pain from arthritis. This remedy works by placing needles onto meridian points of the body, the paths through which the Qi flows.

Reiki is an ancient Japanese form of energy healing. The practitioner uses the power of touch to restore energy to the patient. Reiki is a total system healing experience, working on the physical, mental, and spiritual levels. Some studies have shown that reiki healing can reduce stress, depression, anxiety, fatigue, and general well-being. While still fairly new in the West, reiki is practiced in a few U.S hospitals and holistic care centers for emotional care in tandem with other treatments.
Ayurveda comes from Ancient India. It is a system of well being through diet and lifestyle. The tradition states that there are three main types of energy in the body, or dosas. There is the energy of transformation, pita, the energy of motion, data, and the energy of growth, kapha. Ayurveda seeks to balance these three energies in one’s body and teaches that when these three energies are imbalanced, disease manifests.
Reflexology is the technique of applying pressure to specific points of the hands, feet, and ears to elicit a response in a bodily organ. This practice sees the hands, feet, and ears as small representations of the body as a while. By applying pressure to certain points, it is believed that certain issues with the point’s corresponding organ can be resolved.
