Physical, spiritual, and mental health are all crucial parts of our overall wellness. Western medicine and psychological treatment are the most common modalities for healing in the United States, but what about Eastern medicine, Indigenous healing practices, and other holistic practices? What are some alternative forms of healing and how can they strengthen our wellness practices?
