Self-healing is the process of unlocking your own body’s ability to heal itself, whether on an emotional, physical, or spiritual level. Any number of techniques can be employed, including yoga, acupuncture, reiki, qigong, meditation, mindfulness practices, and more, so long as the individual is working with the goal of healing and self-actualization.
