Humor and Health

Humor and laughter make people feel alive and bring a unique perspective to life. They relieve stress and connect people to one another. Humor is a complex phenomenon and an essential part of human nature. Anthropologists have never found a culture or society that did not have humor as a part of it.

Music Therapy and Sound Healing

In an age where people increasingly turn to holistic methods of healing, music therapy and sound healing have entered mainstream health care and can be used successfully with people of all ages and disabilities.

Energy Healing

With mounting scientific evidence now supporting the efficacy of ancient healing systems, the health care community is combining traditional methods of energy healing with modern medicine. The goal of this course is to explore the different types of energy, the concept of energy healing, and the various types of energy healing available today.

Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork Healing Therapies

Health care is evolving and integrating the healing therapies of alternative and allopathic medicine. Therapeutic massage and bodywork healing methods are being integrated in many health care organizations.
