Whether you’re experiencing anxiety or you want to improve your overall health, western medicine might not be able to give you what you need all the time. Fortunately, according to Downtown’s Healthcare innovative and holistic healthcare providers, there are numerous alternative holistic practices that could hold the answer. Following are a few of the ones that, although are not too well-known in the mainstream, have been found to produce some of the best results out there:

  • Pranayama is one of the most well-known and beneficial methods for conscious and mindful breathing. Originating in India, it is often recommended as an addition to yoga due to its potent ability to improve on the mind and body’s functions. Performing pranayama breathing exercises on a daily basis can help expand the capacity of the lungs, bring more oxygen to vital organs and enhance the ability of the autonomous nervous system to govern all of the body’s vital functions.
  • Another system that offers near instant stress relieving results, while also improving balance and flexibility in the body, is the practice of qigong. Originating in China, qigong (pronounced “chi-gong”) is defined by exercises that help to optimize the body’s energy levels, improving overall health and well-being. Practicing qigong exercises on a regular basis can help improve fitness and strengthen the immune system, while also relieving chronic pain.
  • Finally, TRE (Tension & Trauma Releasing Exercises) is a lesser known system of holistic exercises designed for those who experience trauma-induced stress and anxiety. The system uses a set of exercises to help release tension in the body and ultimately promote an overall state of calm and relaxation.
