Overview

The revolution in health care began when patients started to reject the drugoriented, pills-for-everything attitude of the medical Establishment. As people began to accept responsibility for their own well-being, they turned to self-help. Traditional remedies, once dismissed as "old wives' tales", were found to be effective. Enthusiasm for herbal preparations led to a brisk trade in the vitamins and minerals sold in "health shops." Media interest encouraged the trend, helping to create the next development - an interest in remedial therapies rather than medicines. Typical of these methods is the ancient healing art of Reiki, which originated centuries ago in Tibet and India. Rediscovered in Japan in the middle of the 19th century, it was introduced to the West in the 1930s. A recent upsurge of interest means that Reiki is now one of the most popular and effective of all the therapies available.
