World Healing Day

World Healing Day is a worldwide celebration of various healing practices. It allows us to move slightly away from classical medicine or to combine it with holistic approaches. This means that physical, mental and social factors must be taken into account in the therapy of the patient, and not only the current state of the illness and its symptoms, as determined by diagnosis. The holiday is celebrated every year on the last Saturday in April.


The history of World Healing Day is closely connected with the Chinese practice of Tai Chi chuan. Its essence is a set of certain breathing movements, which are highly effective in the treatment of various diseases. They also help to relieve irritation, stress, anxiety, etc. Initially, in 1999, a holiday dedicated to the practice was established. However, over time, representatives of yoga, meditation, etc. began to join it, and as a result World Healing Day appeared.

Consciousness is a unique tool for controlling all the systems of our body. This is why we are so often advised to be on the positive side. Holistic healing practices are very common in Asia. So why don’t we try them ourselves. Learn to control your consciousness and use breathing techniques, and you will feel the beneficial effects!
