Complementary Therapies: Reiki for Seniors

When you have a sore throat, you may take a spoonful of honey or a lozenge. If you are anemic, you may add an iron tablet to your routine, after you speak to your doctor. However, what can you do when your spirit needs healing?

There are many complementary therapies that have been nurturing people's souls for thousands of years all over the world. The successes of these therapies cannot always be measured in numbers or visible outcomes but in the feelings that patients experience after sharing in them.

It's not an "either-or" situation between conventional medicine and complementary healing. Your elderly loved one may be using medicine to control blood pressure or to keep diabetes in check. However, if yours opens his or her mind to different therapies, they may add to an overall sense of well-being.
