It’s exciting times to be working in the holistic industry. Holistic therapies are gaining greater recognition for their ability to help heal all manner of ailments, and the holistic industry is experiencing a boom in clientele. And now, to add to that success, the technological wave has now hit the holistic industry with the launch of the world’s first online holistic healing platform in the UK – something that would’ve been unthinkable a decade ago.
The platform, Healing Clouds, offers its clients a new approach for help with a variety of physical, mental, emotional or spiritual needs, helping to promote greater well-being by addressing the root of their issue, instead of just treating their symptoms. A one-of-a-kind service, it connects users to holistic healing practitioners from all over the world through live, secure video sessions.
Its founder, Asim Amin, says the idea was first sparked by his mother, who was seeking alternative remedies after she was told she had a 50% chance of recovery following a surgery of Osteoarthritis. Coming right off the back of the boom of the complementary medicine market, which was valued at £32.6 billion in 2015, it truly is exciting times for such a platform to enter the industry.
In an interview with News Anyway, Mr Amin explained that “as soon as people get ill, they take a trip to the doctors but often, these reactions are results of stress and the effects can range from minor aches to heart disease, digestive disorders, respiratory or skin problems. Our aim is to build awareness and educate people on the benefits of Holistic healing, and bring about positive changes in their lives.”
In the case of Amin’s mother, she found the therapy that worked best for her was Pranic Healing, which is a no-touch therapy that cleanses the aura and instead replaces it with positive energy. 120 days into using this therapy, he claims she made a complete recovery and was able to walk again; and it was so effective for her, that she even trained as a certified practitioner herself, to help others in the same way she had been helped herself.
Mr Amin says, “a balanced energy field in our bodies helps us to focus on our goals, become stress-free and lead a much healthier and happier life. Our new, unique approach is set up to take into consideration the whole person, addressing all aspects of their wellbeing.”
And his new website speaks to the popularity of such a platform – already healingclouds.com has registered a dedicated pool of practitioners across the globe. These practitioners cover a wide array of Holistic healing practices, including Reiki, Neuro-Linguistic Programming, Theta-Healing®, Reconnective Healing and Hypnosis to name but only a small few of those lists. Distance healing sessions on the platform start at around £38 per hour.
While the benefits of such a platform to consumers are immediately obvious, what should really appeal to professionals is how this new technology will change the way they work. In the hair and beauty industry, the Missbeez app is making waves in the way freelance and mobile hair and beauty professionals find work, and Healing Clouds is doing the same for the holistic industry. Practitioners can easily sign up to the site to start offering their services globally – once a therapist sends in their application, it’s reviewed by the dedicated team at healingclouds.com, and any qualifications or certifications relevant to the therapy the therapist would like to offer on the site will be examined. Once given the green light by the team, the therapist is then free to start accepting calls globally from customers all over the world.
And there really could be no better time to get involved. It’s already been estimated that more than 60% of the world’s population have used or do use some form of traditional therapeutic medicine, and this is only expected to increase dramatically in the coming years. In fact, it’s estimated that by 2025, the industry will be worth £148.8 billion – a truly staggering statistic.
We really can’t wait to see what platforms like Healing Clouds have to bring to the future of the holistic industry.
Please note, Holistic Gold currently can’t insure the treatment of clients outside of the UK however, we are looking into adding this to our policy.
