Healing practices across different cultures

Healing practices across different cultures:

Every culture is unique and has different healing practices which are specific to their region and areas. So, there are some healing practices in different cultures.


Native Hawaiians have practiced a sophisticated form of healing for thousands of years. It combines healing herbs with fasting, seawater cleanses, steam baths, massage, and prayer, much of which has filtered into holistic therapies across the world.

Lomi Lomi massage

Lomi Lomi massage in HAWAIIAN language means to, “to knead, rub, soothe or to work in and out as per the paws of a contented cat’ and is used by traditional healers to help to balance spiritual, emotional, and physical wellbeing.

Practiced across the Middle East and southern Asia, this healing system developed across Arabia and Persia thousands of years ago and is still practiced widely in countries including Bangladesh, India, Iran, and Pakistan. It is based on the theory that the body has four natural ‘humors’ – blood, bile, black bile, and phlegm – that need to be balanced through lifestyle changes, natural medicine, and holistic therapies.

These holistic therapies with spiritual wisdom and the use of indigenous herbs and spices to address physical and mental illness are practiced in China, Japan, India, and Indonesia. In Balinese culture, there are two worlds – the conscious reality called ‘sekala’ and the psychic world called ‘niskala’ – and both need to be addressed when healing illness. Traditional Healers or Shamans are being called to heal the illness.

hmm interesting what you think of Pakistani beating way of expunging jin churails? is this method right

Thanks Mr. Imtiaz.
All the methods (mention above) are use to restore health… By keeping in mind the believes related to these supernatural beings (jin, churail, etc.) Yes, this is the cultural practice as same as using of Amulets, Holy water, to visit shrines, etc.

thanks for responding with valid information but question yet has not been answered. what’s your opinion of that? is it right or evil scam only

Lomi lomi massage :sweat_smile::thinking::thinking:

It can be a scam or can not be.
Let me give you an example. In Gilgit Baltistan, Shamans or Dayal (those who have proper training) can communicate with supernatural beings or spirits (in a state of trance/meditation) and then perform different rituals to restore the health of a person who has some effects of these supernatural being. So, this is a proper (unique) cultural practice.
While, on the other hand, those who don’t have any training or knowledge about it, (according to me) are just trying to deceive people.
