There are no limits to the forms that healing can take. Using Western and Eastern medicine in conjunction can often lead to the best health results, but there is one aspect all types of medicine have in common. That common factor is touch. The healing power of touch is not to be underestimated as a powerful source of healing, although it is often overlooked.
Touch itself is an ancient form of healing that permeates various religions and societies, and that is gaining attention today in the form of massage, reiki, and acupuncture. It is universally acknowledged that touch can simultaneously ease pain, lessen anxiety, promote healing and hope, and help one to take the obstacles in life in stride.
