We believe wellness is an integration of the mind, body, and the soul. Hence, it is imperative to work on your overall wellness in a systematic manner, and in a way that resonates with you the most.
Psychotherapy is the process of treating mental and emotional distress with the assistance of verbal and psychological techniques.
The term psychotherapy is derived from the Ancient Greek word psyche (ψυχή meaning "breath; spirit; soul") and therapeia (θεραπεία "healing; medical treatment"). The Oxford English Dictionary defines it now as "The treatment of disorders of the mind or personality by psychological methods."
The goal of Psychotherapy is to improve an individual's well-being and mental health, to resolve or mitigate troublesome behaviors, beliefs, compulsions, thoughts, or emotions, and to improve relationships and social skills.
Various techniques and strategies are used depending on the client, and the problem at hand. However, almost all types of psychotherapy involve developing a therapeutic relationship, communicating and creating a dialogue, and working to overcome problematic thoughts or behaviors.
At The Blue Lotus, we resonate the most with the Humanistic Approach to Therapy, and integrate it into Cognitive Behavioral and Talk Therapy. The Humanistic approach is also known as the client-centered therapy, which focuses on the therapist showing unconditional positive regard to the client. The Cognitive Behavioral Approach involves techniques to change negative thoughts and maladaptive behaviors. This approach helps in recognizing and changing the underlying thoughts that contribute to stress, and modifying the problematic behaviors that result from these thoughts and emotions.
Psychotherapy is delivered one on one, or in groups ; personally or over the phone.
Clinical Hypnotherapy uses advanced methods of hypnosis and other techniques to treat a variety of challenges such as- enhancing decision making powers, treating a range of mental health issues like anxiety depression, border-line personality disorders, eating disorders, weight management, various psychosomatic disorders, pain management, relationship issues etc.
It is an integrative field of study which includes behavioral psychology, cognitive psychology,regression therapy, trauma work, EMDR and NLP.
It is a fact that no-one can be hypnotized against their will and even when hypnotized, a person can still reject any suggestion. Thus, therapeutic hypnosis is a state of purposeful and confidential co-operation.
Hypnotherapy is a complementary, and not an alternative method of treatment.
The Redikall (read: Radical) Approach
Everything we think and feel has an impact on our energy as a whole. We believe every distress has a mental, emotional, physical and spiritual component to it. As the name here rightly suggests, this a RADICAL, and an alternative approach to assist in a client's journey of healing and recovery.
The root cause of every dis-ease is believed to be in our thoughts. The Redikall approach involves diagnosing erroneous thought forms and belief patterns intuitively from a manual by a Redikall Healing Therapist, helping the client bring awareness to their core issues that are not empowering, and correcting them with specially curated affirmations for that particular chakra block.
It invariably happens, that when the the affirmation is appropriate, the chakras, the energy wheels in our subtle body, will resonantly open, and in many cases, immediate mental, emotional and sometimes physical relief can also be felt.
Also, a perceivable shift in one's 'Being' is often accompanied by a sigh of relief, as the light of a positive thought induced by a correctly designed affirmation dispels the darkness of the erroneous thought process.
Redikall works on a simple and basic concept, that enables and facilitates healing of any kind, as mentioned below:
Thoughts --> Emotions --> Energy --> Physical Manifestation
Reiki is a hands-on energy healing technique thousands of years old. It is thought to have originated as a Tibetan Buddhist practice. The name Reiki comes from
the Japanese pronunciation of two Chinese characters that are said to describe the energy
itself: rei (soul/spirit/God) and ki (life force energy).
This 2,500 year old healing art has always existed but was rediscovered by Dr. Mikao Usui, a Japanese Buddhist in the 1800's. Usui gave this form of healing a formal structure and taught students how to use it in a systematic fashion. It is believed that if you are spiritually ready, you will naturally be drawn to Reiki. Reiki is beneficial for treating physical, emotional, spiritual or mental challenges.
Reiki can never cause harm or have any side effects, because Reiki is guided by the Universal Life Force. The practitioner is also not directly doing the healing and hence he is not in danger of taking on the Karma of the client. It always knows what a person needs and will adjust itself to create an effect that is appropriate. One need never worry about whether to give Reiki or not, it is always helpful.
Reiki never depletes the practitioner‟s own energy because it is a channeled healing. Whenever you do Reiki both you and the client receive a healing. So, while giving a treatment, it always increases one‟s energy and leaves one surrounded with a heightened energy level and a sense of well-being.
When a person receives a Reiki treatment, the energy assesses where the person has blockages and then directs the healing energy usually to the area where the healing is required. The Reiki energy then heals them in a number of ways.
Reiki raises the vibratory level in and around the physical body, where the negative thoughts and feelings are attached, by flowing through the affected parts of the energy field and charging them with positive energy, thereby causing the negative energy to break apart and disintegrate.
Reiki clears, straightens and heals and usually lifts up the blocked energy to a higher field of energy where it is processed, melted, or burnt up and transmuted. This may cause different sensations in different people like a cold feeling on the release of the block or feeling of heat when the block is being burnt up. This is followed by a feeling of well-being, with the „Ki‟ flowing naturally, and the physical organs and tissues are then able to complete their own healing process.
Reiki is both powerful and gentle. In its long history of use, it has aided in healing virtually every know illness, and injury including serious problems like multiple sclerosis, heart disease and cancer as well as skin problems, cuts, bruises, broken, bones, headaches, colds, flu, sore throat, sunburn, fatigue, insomnia, and impotence. It can also be used to treat nonphysical ailments like anxiety, depression, tension, mental and emotional disturbances. Reiki can equally be applied to other situational challenges like financial difficulties and personal and relationship problems.
Reiki works in harmony with all other kinds of treatment. You can continue to receive regular medical or psychological treatment while receiving Reiki with improved results. In fact, Reiki will improve the results of any medical treatment, acting to reduce negative side– effects, such as those from chemotherapy, surgery, and invasive procedures. It shortens healing time, and reduces and eliminates pain, reduces stress, and helps create optimism. It has been regularly noted that the patients receiving Reiki leave the hospital earlier than those who do not.
While Reiki is spiritual in nature, it is not a religion. It has no dogma, and there is nothing you must believe in order to learn and use Reiki. In fact Reiki will work whether you believe in it or not.
A Reiki treatment can be given distantly or personally in a hands-on session, since energy of any kind is not and cannot be defined by space and time.
Naturopathy is an alternative medical system that uses natural remedies to help the body heal itself. It embraces many therapies, including herbs, massage,acupressure, yoga exercise, breathing exercises and meditations, element based therapies (water treatments, magnet therapies, etc), osteopathy and chiropractic, and nutritional counseling.
Naturopathy was brought to the United States from Germany in the 1800s, but some of its treatments are centuries old. Today, it combines traditional treatments with modern science.
The goal of Naturopathic therapy is to treat the whole person -- that means mind, body, and spirit. It also aims to heal the root causes of an illness - not just stop the symptoms. Note: a) Naturopathy is not a replacement for traditional medical care, but rather a supportive, and a drug free mode of treatment. In many cases, you can use both conventional and Naturopathic treatments to treat an illness. It is not to be replaced for emergencies or issues that require a visit to the hospital, or replace something like major surgery.
b) Ishita is NOT a Naturopathic Physician, but only a Traditional Naturopath
