Natural Medicine, a natural choice

Natural medicine (also known as complementary, alternative, holistic or traditional medicine) refers to healthcare practices and therapies whereby trained natural medicine practitioners treat their patients for illnesses via natural methods and materials. The ‘holistic’ nature of natural medicine practice extends to identifying the most appropriate modality, or type of therapy, both for the individual and their presenting health concerns. These modalities can be classified by three primary models: Ingestive therapies (including naturopathy and nutrition), Bodywork & Massage and Chinese Medicine, which includes associated techniques like acupuncture.
