Holistic Medicine Doctors
About Holistic Medicine Doctors
Holistic Medicine is a form of healing that emphasizes on care for the whole person – body, mind and spirit – to achieve optimal health and wellness. Holistic Medicine practitioners may utilize all forms of health care, from conventional treatment to alternative therapies, in order to treat the patient. Their beliefs indicate that a person’s imbalance (physical, emotional and spiritual) in their livelihood may negatively impact their overall health; therefore, lifestyle modifications may also be suggested in the treatment plan.
Degrees and Education
Holistic Medicine practitioners first must obtain a Master’s Degree in Alternative Medicine, and complete courses that focus on acupuncture, Chinese medicine, physiology, massage therapy and various other body therapy disciplines. After obtaining a Master’s Degree, students can typically be licensed by the state before they begin practicing legally.
In conjunction with a Master’s Degree in Holistic Medicine, a certificate for a specific field of study can also be obtained, including Massage Therapy, Herbal Medicine, Oriental Body Therapy and Yoga Instruction.
