What Modality to Choose?

Thursday, May 26, 2011 by Amanda

Hypnosis, Brain Gym, Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP), Acupuncture, Time Line Therapy, Tapping (EFT), Massage (lots of different types), Reiki, Holistic Pulsing, Kinesiology, Meditation, …

These are some of the many modalities I have tried over the years. It seems to me that no one method is better than any other. They often work in different ways to achieve the same outcome – whether it be resolution to a physical problem, moving through an emotional issue or experiencing peace. As my life progresses, my favourite modalities change. Over time, I have found that my personal growth accelerates when starting something new and deepens as the modality becomes more familiar to me. It’s like a new commitment to the process.

As time has gone on, I have started to develop my own style of how to deal with a problem. A bit of this, a bit of that, stopping to smell the roses, … and now, I have a full appreciation for how new modalities are born.

Recently I noticed my preference for body or mind focussed modalities. Upon starting with spirit work, the realisation came that you can work with any one of the 3 elements and have results in any of the other ones. For example, body work can help your soul (spirit), spirit work can help with new mindsets and mind work can have physical results in your body. Fascinating stuff!

As my attraction towards particular modalities surfaces, I use this as my guidance on what to work with next. What a fantastic place we are in where there are so many options available to us.

What is your favourite modality and why?

    My favorite modality is The Journey. I found The Journey when I had some physical health issues and was looking for something alternative to conventional medicine. The Journey gets to the underlying, deep emotional cause of any issue. Emotions get stored/stuck in our bodies, along with negative self-beliefs, and affect how our life unfolds, and affects our physical health. I agree with Amanda that working on one area of Mind, Body, Spirit affects the other areas also. Recently I have been having some ortho-bionomy treatment and my body really likes this. It is a gentle way to change physical movement patterns and at the same time emotions are released.

    I have heard that The Journey is great for getting to the roots of deep issues although I haven’t experienced this modality yet. I have never even heard of ortho-bionomy so will have to look that one up.
