In the last issue (IE 176), we began a roundup of the complementary therapies available in Ipoh and discussed the various ways in which these different therapies can complement allopathic medicine in healing physical ailments particularly those originating from emotional causes. In this issue, we continue with our investigation and highlight the plethora of different therapies, techniques and practices  that may assist in the alleviation of suffering whether it be physical or emotional pain.

“I don’t understand how it works. All I know is that it works” – Jaz Goven (FTT & EFT Trainer)

Fast Track and Emotional Healing Technique (EFT)

Fast track technique and EFT is another healing modality that helps a person to enjoy better health and general well-being. In this method, muscle testing is used to access the subconscious mind and locate the root cause of a particular issue that is contributing to the imbalance in your life, whether it be physical or emotional.

It was a delight to spend time with Jaz Goven, a British national who has been conducting training sessions here in Ipoh, as she took me through the very simple stages of her programme.

Muscle Testing

According to Jaz, your body will always tell you the truth when your subconscious mind is questioned. And muscle testing is the key to accessing the subconscious mind. Once accessed she continues to probe for the root causes of the various physical or emotional problems that are presenting themselves in one’s present life. She then moves on to eliminate the beliefs that caused them either through a tapping process known as EFT which engages certain acupressure points of the body or with the use of magnets and affirmations.

Jaz is passionate about helping people help themselves, which is an attractive feature of the technique, if you don’t want to keep seeking “treatment” on a regular basis. Jaz hopes that by learning the fast track technique and EFT, any individual will be able to, not only address their emotions and overcome negativity, but will also be in better control of their health and their lives.

TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) and Acupuncture

As far back as 4000 years ago, people have been turning to TCM and acupuncture to treat all kinds of ailments. Today it is enjoying a revitalised popularity as more people are discovering its efficacy.

Queenie Kong took some time away from her busy schedule to explain just how TCM and acupuncture helps. Practising her art of healing since 2008, she bases her treatments on finding the root cause of the problem rather than simply treating the symptom. This, Queenie emphasizes, is the only way to keep the negative condition from recurring.

Queenie uses four different “checking steps” to determine the root cause of any negative condition, before attempting to treat her clients. Observing, Listening, Questioning and Palpations make up the check list. She then examines the condition of your tongue to further confirm her initial diagnosis. A standard session could take anywhere from 20 to 45 minutes, while the more intense sessions take an hour during which time she may prescribe acupuncture to relieve symptoms or she may make up a herbal mixture for you to decoct at home or even give you herbal medicines in capsule form.

Another interesting area that Queenie’s expertise covers is Aesthetics acupuncture. The ‘before’ and ‘after’ pictures of ladies having ‘gone under the needle’ on their faces for firming and de-wrinkling were so spectacular that even a skeptic like me found myself tempted. So ladies, you might want to consider this before going under the knife, to make those all so ‘little’ adjustments.

Karmic and Angelic Reiki

Another Reiki practitioner I had the pleasure of meeting, was Lee Jee Wai. Using Angel therapy cards was part of Lee’s foray into the world of alternative healing. He is passionate about making people understand that their general well-being is intricately connected to their physical, mental, emotional and spiritual balance. With his attunement to Reiki and healing sessions, Lee hopes to help individuals seeking help to finally achieve that all so important balance in their lives.

Lee’s work is heavily based on the Forgiveness Principle, which is the Hawaiian Teaching of “Ho o Pono Pono”. The words mean “I am sorry, Please forgive me, I love you and Thank you”. These words are usually uttered at the beginning of the Reiki session to allow some of the negative energy from within to be released and replaced with positive energy. The inner peace often enjoyed, usually works as the ideal launching pad for the individual to pursue Reiki further.

Reiki, Karuna, Ki, Sufi, Imara Attunement

When things go wrong in your life or even if you simply want to make some positive changes, calling on Dr Abd. Rahman Mat Judin to help steer you in the right direction might be the best route to take. After extensively studying and attending a variety of courses on Reflexology, Aromatherapy, Pranic Healing, Yoga, Tai Chi, Silva Mind Control and many other alternative healing methodologies, Dr Rahman is indeed more than qualified to help anyone searching for a better and more fulfilling life, or to simply be able to reach their goals.

Dr Rahman has also been instrumental in teaching and encouraging many others to become masters in the alternative healing field. He has had the opportunity to treat people from all over the world, with his particular style which effectively utilizes the inherent energy prana or life energy to infuse self-healing.

Issues on unhappy marriages, lack of motivation to study, not being able to excel in a chosen field, picking suitable employees, breaking bad habits and financial problems are just some of the challenges that Dr Rahman has successfully worked on, through the course of practising his complementary healing style. Over the course of the last three years, since going into the complementary healing practice full time, he has been able to help an even more impressive number of people. However, Dr Rahman does emphasize that, the individual seeking help, must do so only when he/she is ready to make a change.

Pranic Healing

Pranic healing is a form of healing that creates the opportunity for you to welcome joy, peace, good health, spirituality and abundance into your life. Pranic healing is based on the concept of learning to harness “prana” otherwise referred to as “life energy” or better known to the Chinese community as “Chi” to create a life of balance in mind, body and soul. The practice of Pranic healing can help to heal physical and emotional problems.

Pranic healing bases its idea on the fundamental principle of the body as a self-healing, living entity. Therefore with the right “tools” and guidance the body is capable of healing itself. In Pranic healing, this “tool” is the art of increasing the life force to address any physical or emotional imbalance. Somewhat similar to the practice of some forms of Reiki, Pranic healing also uses a non-physical contact style of moving energy. The life energy is meant to help unblock the energy flow to the chakra or energy centre in your body so that the cleansing and healing process can begin.

In Ipoh, there are various weekly programmes, special programmes and monthly programmes that anyone can attend. At these programmes there are free healing sessions done by Pranic healers, meditation sessions to facilitate self-healing, and meditation sessions for world peace. There are also special on-going healing programmes held every alternate Sunday at the Ipoh Polo Ground. For the month of November and December there are full moon scheduled meditation sessions at all the centres on the 17th day of each month respectively.

In the end, all anyone really wants is to be able to live a life free of illness, worries and heartache. Although there are various different types of medications that can help a person actually achieve some level of control over these elements, long term use of these prescriptions often bring about other medical problems. Alternative healing practices are based on righting the wrongs in your life in the most natural and noninvasive manner. You have nothing to lose but everything to gain by taking the time to learn how to be at peace, in body, mind and spirit.
