Alternative therapies are no longer a way for yoga pants wearing yuppies to throw expendable cash at their discontent. They’re getting trendier, sleeker and more acceptable as spirituality and wellness become a normal part of everyday life.
VICE UK’s Hannah Ewens has watched the rise of these treatments and having spent thousands on talking therapy over the years, decides to investigate whether they have worth for those who want to manage their mental health and wellbeing. Finding that all of them are close to her house, she goes to get gonged into peace of mind by sound therapist Louise Shiels and float away in an isolation tank at Floatworks. She later deep breathes into any bodily-held trauma and anxiety at Breath Pod and visits Rachel Welford to learn how to tap away fears with Emotional Freedom Technique.
Are any of these alternative therapies worth our time and money? Could they be a viable option for shifting our low-level anxiety and boosting our poor wellbeing? Or are they all overpriced fads?
