Hello all. How are you? I thought I’d use a real life example of how I integrate Holistic Therapies into everyday life for this week’s blog post.
I was called away from work yesterday by my son’s High School. My eldest son had been involved in an incident and had injured his neck. Whilst the injury itself was not serious, the emotional impact on my sensitive eleven year old cannot be under-estimated.
We spent the afternoon discussing his feelings whilst watching a film together on the sofa. After checking there was no heat or swelling around the neck area, we alternated cold and hot compresses. I also used oral arnica tablets and Neal’s Yard Remedies Arnica salve in a gentle massage around the affected area.
I realised my son’s active imagination would mean falling asleep would be an issue so he listened to a meditation app, I placed a crystal grid around his bed and used Neal’s Yard Remedies to Roll Sleep on his pulse points. Needless to say hands-on and distance Reiki have been continuously used.
Today is going slowly as I just want to check how he’s doing; patience has never been one of my strongest points.
Are there any other holistic therapies you would have used in the same situation? Let me know below, I’d love some more ideas.
