The below holistic healing practices are natural methods of achieving good mental and physical health. Have you tried any of these?

Whether we are familiar with holistic healing or not, for the most part, stable health and well-being are all we want in life. It’s what we wish for our families, and it’s the first thing we are thankful for when things don’t seem to go our way. “At least I have my health,” is something my mother still says when I complain.

The thing is, she’s right. When you have your health, you have everything. A good deal of us prefers to achieve our good health with natural methods, which includes several holistic healing practices, which means that they treat the body as a whole.

Here are 11 holistic healing practices you should try for good health.

1. Acupuncture

Most of us know acupuncture as the Chinese practice of putting needles in your body. That’s exactly what it is. Of course, those specified spikes should be inserted by an acupuncture specialist, and you should not try to insert them yourself.

This holistic practice is used to treatheadaches, relieve stress, improve immunity, ease digestive disorders, help with allergies, and reduce pain in the back, neck, and joints. Acupuncture also promotes mental clarity and increases energy.

2. Balneotherapy

This practice uses bathing in springs as a technique to bring health and wellness to your body, mind, and soul. Mostly, it has been used to treat arthritis, lower back pain, and fibromyalgia. The key thing is the patient must bath in the natural hot springs or similar mineral-rich water.

Baths like this increase circulation, detoxify your body and ease stress, which can cause a myriad of problems.

3. Ayurveda

This is the world’s oldest holistic healing practice, and it is founded on the ideology that wellness and good health come from balancing the spirit, mind, and the body. It started in India more than 3,000 years ago, the goal of this method is to restore the balance between your three doshas, or elements.

This can be done by cleansing or “panchakarma”, blood purification, massage, medical oils, herbs, and laxatives or enemas.

4. Homeopathy

The idea behind this practice is “like cures like” and the practitioners believe that the body has the power to heal itself. It has been used to treat allergies, migraines, depression, chronic fatigue syndrome, rheumatoid arthritis, irritable bowel syndrome, and premenstrual syndrome.

5. Music Therapy

We have another practice that helps with all types of illnesses. Music is an international language that transcends barriers and can do a world of good for those who are suffering from mental or physical disorders.

A music therapist can visit regularly with the patient to create a warm positive atmosphere, which is always a good thing when it comes to the healing process.

6. Chiropractic

Adjusting and aligning your joints and vertebrae is at the basis of this holistic medicine. If you have ever seen a chiropractor, you remember putting your face down into a strange chair/massage table. Then you feel the doctor push and crack your back, which feels weird but good.

When the spinal column gets out of whack, the whole body can suffer.

7. Aromatherapy

The use of essential oils is what this practice deals with. When it comes to these powerful little extracts, they can solve a number of problems. There is an essential oil for stress, one for joint pain, and another to help you focus when you need it.

In fact, there is an essential oil to help with almost anything. Aromatherapypractices utilize inhalation of the scents, topical application with use of carrier oils, and the occasional ingestion to reap these benefits. Essential oils are volatile compounds and should be used correctly.

Be sure to consult a professional before starting an aromatherapy practice.

8. Massage Therapy

Our next holistic healing practice uses the manipulation of your muscles, connective tissues, tendons, and ligaments to bring good health and well-being to the patient. There are rehabilitative massage and relaxation. It increases blood flow as well as lymph circulation.

9. Naturopathy

Just as the name suggests, this practice utilizes natural remedies for everything instead of conventional medicine. Some of the devices they use have already been mentioned here. They include herbal treatments, acupuncture, exercise, and nutrition.

It is a form of holistic healing in that the idea of this practice is to treat the whole person, including their spirit and mind along with the body.

10. Reflexology

This next practice falls under massage but focuses on the feet, hands, and ears. It is built on the belief that certain places in those areas of the body, when the right pressure is applied, can relieve your internal organs of pain, illnesses, and toxins.

There are maps on the internet of the feet the reflexology points on the soles if you would like to try it yourself.

11. Reiki

Our last practice falls under the category of energy healing, but it deserves a slot all its own. Getting its start in Japan, this treatment works on the whole person and focuses primarily on the life force energy using techniques like meditation.


There are so many ways we can treat ourselves without relying solely on conventional medicine. These natural powers have been around much longer and have lasted centuries, which means something on our book.

  1. I love this list; I’m about to go to my weekly acupuncture session. May I suggest you extend the list to 12 and include hypnotherapy? I’m a Rapid Transformational Therapist/Clinical Hypnotherapist and the results achieved in freeing myself and others from physical and emotional issues attest to how important it is to often heal at the level of trapped subconscious pain.

  2. I am seeing a Rhematoid arthritis doctor right now, some type of Autoimmune desiese? I so don’t want the meds that they advertise for RA or any of it, I’ve been fighting a battle for a long time, with anxiety and depression, financial hardship also which definitely doesn’t help, I need help to become wealthy so I can be healthy ??

    • Lisa you might look at the use of Boron (or 20 Mule Team Borax) I’ve started using it and it seems to help. Blessings!

  3. Je situe vos pratiques de guérison holistique dans la même veine que bien d’ autres productions héritées du New-âge dont on peut connaître l’ampleur de l’échec de ce Mouvement qui se voulait ‘Spirituel’ mais dont les frasques prétentieuses ont conduit ses adeptes à la pire catastrophe …Comprenne qui veut bien faire l’effort de comprendre..
    Me concernant, depuis que je me connais je n’ai jamais été malade alors que je suis rentré dans la catégorie des septuagénaires. Mon secret? -car il y en a un- c’est qu’encore enfant je me suis interdit de connaître la maladie…je vais même jusqu’à bannir ce mot par trop chargé d énergies négatives délétères. Non! je parle de ‘déséquilibre énergétique’ et avec cela j’ai pu suivre mon chemin de vie avec une santé indéfectible . Ma devise: ” Mon meilleur moyen de me soigner est tout bonnement de ne jamais tomber malade!” Affaire de volonté me direz-vous, et vous avez raison de toute évidence.
