DIY Holistic Therapy



Yoga is a well-known natural therapy in the West, where many people view it as a form of gentle exercise that consists of body postures and breathing techniques with perhaps some meditation thrown in. However, in its purest Hindi form yoga is in fact a way of being that controls all aspects of life.



Fundamentally meditation is about detaching from the world around you and reaching a state of deep relaxation and increased mental clarity. Depending on the context it is described in many ways, for example meditation could be a condition in which the mind focuses on a thought or an image, or an open receptiveness to whatever enters the mind, or a state of relaxed awareness, or a state in which the mind is “empty”.

Tai Chi

T'ai Chi

T’ai Chi is another natural therapy that has its’ origins in traditional Chinese medicine, in that it aims to ensure a balanced flow of qi (life energy) through the body’s meridians. It is believed that an imbalance in qi causes illness, and t’ai chi is practised as a form of preventative therapy to prevent this.



Choosing to receive counselling can be a very liberating experience and an excellent way of helping yourself. In a society where there is still a stigma attached to going to see a counsellor or psychotherapist, albeit gradually reducing, deciding to go down the path of helping yourself in this way is a courageous step but often one well worth it.
