About This Course
(9 contact hours) The healing traditions of alternative, holistic, and integrative medicine have been practiced around the world for thousands of years. In recent years, practitioners of Western medicine have begun to recognize the benefits of incorporating these traditions into their healing methods to provide more effective care for their patients.
In this four-lesson certificate program, you'll gain an understanding of this unique and effective approach to health care. Designed for both health care professionals and consumers, the program explores key integrative and holistic therapeutic modalities, including the use of humor, the impact of music and sound, energy healing, and massage and bodywork.
As you'll learn, both the experience of practitioners and mounting scientific evidence supports the use of these integrative techniques. In the program, you'll gain an awareness of the philosophies of health and wellness that guide all integrative and healing techniques, and learn ways to put these philosophies into action to promote healing. Above all, you'll gain a new respect for human individuality and the healing power of the integrative health approach.
