Alternative Therapy

Like alternative medicine, alternative therapy is defined as the use of health care products and systems that are not considered to be an integral part of conventional health care. They include therapeutic practices such as acupuncture, aromatherapy and craniosacral therapy to name but a few.

Ongoing research across many branches of alternative therapy is now proving that non-conventional health care does work. Practitioners involved in conventional medicine are also more accepting of alternative treatments, and may in some cases, advise their patients to explore the possibilities provided by some forms of alternative therapy.

Alternative therapy is extremely popular as a way to combat aches and pains, to relax or invigorate the body and also as a complimentary way to nurse more serious ailments when conventional medicine is lacking. Prevention and treatment of disease, as well as the promotion of good health is what alternative therapy aims to supply patients, and as many therapies focus on the body's natural rhythm, alternative therapies act upon parts of the body in a way that conventional medicine cannot.

Please review the resources on our site for more information on alternative therapy. You will also find sections on alternative medicine as well as some therapies themselves such as aromatherapy and chiropractic.
