The Secret Healing Powers of Seeds
When it comes to addressing issues of modern life such as anxiety, fear, depression, low immunity and basically a relentlessly fast-paced life, age-old healing methods just might be the answer.
I am on a journey of exploring and creating awareness about various healing modalities that are available to us, and this one goes back to roots, seeds actually! Seed therapy is a somewhat forgotten, yet immensely powerful technique to alleviate concerns at the physical, mental as well as emotional level, using hands and feet as treatment areas.
Seeds are crops at their very beginning stage of life. Because they contain all the nutrients essential for growing a healthy and resilient plant, they are holders of the life force. Just consider: a seed holds the potential not just for one tree, but over time, for an entire forest. Seeds are powerful and intelligent — they persevere, and at exactly the right moment, they can transform into something much bigger and more magnificent than what they appeared to be. Now imagine what it can do for the body.
Seed Therapy is based on Sujok Therapy; Su means hand and Jok means foot. The name signifies the importance of using hands and feet as areas of treatment for the whole body. Seed Therapy deals with the application of seeds, attaching it with a tape to a corresponding point in the hand or foot of a person feeling pain. Sujok works on the faith that the whole body can be condensed into the hand or feet. Specific points in our hands and feet correspond to different organs. The thumb, for example, is considered to be the head.
Another important factor for treatment is the shape of the seeds being used. After identifying the area on the hand which corresponds to the pain, seeds are placed there with sticky tape or Band-Aid for a minimum of four hours or can be left overnight. This procedure is repeated for as long as required, and till you feel the difference.
When things seem simple enough to do at home, they usually are! A short course in Seed Therapy can give you the necessary knowledge to self-heal as you sleep.
