The truly “natural” way to treat a compulsive finger picking habit is to face the inner, psychological issues that more often than not cause the habit. The FingerFreak archives are packed with treatment options and plans focused on the psychological approach to healing. But still, physical-based approaches that attack inner causes of a compulsive habit can be just as potent. Naturopathy and Naturopathic Treatments are a broad category for just such a treatment type, including:
- Acupuncture — ancient, proven and effective
- Aromatherapy — get your fingers looking and smelling their best
- Relaxation Techniques — such meditation, hypnosis and the softer side of yoga
- So-called “Manual Therapies” — such as traditional massage therapy and other movement therapies (including good ‘ol exercise)
Naturopathy is unlike some other alternative therapies, such as Homeopathy, in that scientific studies are available to substantiate patients’ anecdotal claims that natural treatments work. After a long hiatus in the US, Naturopathy has risen to be a bona fide medical specialty. Studies have shown that certain nutritive therapies can address symptoms of various anxiety disorders.
