An all-in-one desk reference for students as well as holistic healers, this guide to alternative health careers and resources provides information on postgraduate training, modality categories and trends, and networking venues. In addition to featuring listings of institutions offering licensed degree programs—in fields such as acupuncture; allopathic, chiropractic, naturopathic, and osteopathic medicines; as well as holistic nursing, massage therapy, and social work—this guide provides training information on 50 nondegree holistic modalities, including ayurvedic, energy, and herbal medicine, midwifery, and yoga training. A comprehensive listing and description of health resources—domestic and international conference and retreat centers and research institutes—are also contained in this reference along with hints on various techniques and methods, information on career and training opportunities, licensure guidelines, salary information, internship and residency programs, associations, and online resources.

This all-in-one, up-to-date career and professional reference provides a comprehensive survey of integrative, alternative and complementary medicine therapies, their study and practice, for students as well as holistic practitioners. It covers the 11 major medical licenses – including natural and allopathic medicine, acupuncture, chiropractic, body and mind therapies and nursing – and 50 non-degree modalities such as ayurveda, herbal medicine, midwifery, biofeedback and yoga training. Modality history, philosophy, basic techniques and methods of each discipline are surveyed, along with career and training opportunities, licensure guidelines and salary information. With over 2,500 entries, it also features continuing education and postgraduate studies, conference and retreat centers, online resources and social networks, associations and research institutes, and major periodicals and publications. This book is a must-have desk resource for career seekers, students, holistic-minded healers and anyone interested in seeking out integrative medicine techniques and practitioners for themselves.
