It’s reported more and more: Western medicine acknowledges the value of alternative therapies.

“Iris Otts is battling breast cancer with two weapons. Her doctor has prescribed chemotherapy, which makes her feel sick, and Reiki, which makes her feel better.”

Most often, western doctors are cautious with their acceptance. They think at best Reiki might offer a placebo effect and as long as it doesn’t interfere with clinical treatments, it will do no harm.

But little by little, we also see an honest humility in recognizing that traditional western treatments may not offer all the solutions. That alternative and holistic therapies have real value.

I just found this lovely video. In addition to having some compelling things to say about the practice of holistic healing, the rhythms and sounds of the video are quite meditative.

I recommend expanding it to full screen to view all the text. And no need to rush the reading – they allow plenty of time to take it all in.

Be well.
