Holistic therapies are a natural and non-invasive approach to healing and are believed to be effective at improving overall well-being and quality of life. Holistic therapy combines aspects of traditional talk therapy and non-traditional approaches, including hypnosis, breath therapy, and meditation. At Niraa we aim to integrate spiritual, physical, mental, and emotional forms of well-being through Holistic therapies.
Benefits of Holistic Therapies
Deep Tissue Therapy
Deep tissue therapy is a massage technique used to treat musculoskeletal issues. Pressure is applied in the affected area using gentle, deep strokes that invigorate the inner layers of the muscles and tissues. Deep tissue therapy is a highly effective treatment for pain relief and the break up of scar tissue formed following injurie.
Hot Stone Therapy
Hot Stone Therapy is a massage technique that uses smooth, flat, heated stones to help relieve pain and tension in the muscles. The stones are typically made of basalt, a type of volcanic rock known for its ability to retain heat. During the therapy, the therapist places the heated stones on specific parts of the body, often along the spine, in the palms of the hands, or on the feet. The stones’ heat helps relax the muscles, improve circulation, and reduce stress. Hot Stone Therapy is often used to treat various conditions, including muscle pain, back pain, and stress-related disorders. It is believed to be a relaxing and therapeutic treatment that can help improve overall health and well-being.
Acupuncture is traditional Chinese medicine that involves the insertion of thin needles into specific points on the body to stimulate energy flow and promote healing. Acupuncture is often used to treat various conditions, including chronic pain, stress, anxiety, and insomnia. It is believed to work by activating the body’s natural healing processes and promoting balance and harmony within its energy systems. Acupuncture is a safe and effective treatment option for many people and has been used for centuries to improve overall health and well-being.
Physiotherapy or Physical therapy is widely used to treat people experiencing difficulty or limitations in their ability to move or perform day-to-day functions. It is a common treatment for musculoskeletal issues or as part of recovery from injuries. Physiotherapy involves the therapists assessing the person’s condition through their medical history and physical examination to come up with a treatment plan. It involves various physical exercises that help release the tightening of muscles in the affected area.
The ancient system of Nada Yoga suggests that the ragas of Hindustani and Carnatic Classical music have a therapeutic effect on our minds. The rendition of ragas either vocally or through instruments create a positive impact on the mood of a person and uplift the level of their consciousness through the vibrations from these sounds. Raaga therapy is highly effective to reduce stress levels and mood enhancement.
Reiki is an energy healing technique that promotes relaxation, reduces stress and anxiety through gentle touch. Reiki practitioners use their hands to deliver energy to your body, improving the flow and balance of your energy to support healing.
Cupping is a type of alternative therapy that involves placing cups on the skin to create suction. This suction is thought to improve the flow of energy in the body and facilitate healing. One of the oldest medical texts to mention cupping therapy is Eber’s papyrus (1550 B.C.) from Ancient Egypt, though cupping is a part of many ancient healing systems, including Chinese, Unani, traditional Korean, and Tibetan. Greek physician Hippocrates, often referred to as the “father” of medicine, even compiled descriptions of cupping techniques.
