Alternative Medicine Services & Practitioners Australia | LocalBook

Australia Alternative Medicine Practitioners DirectoryGenerally, alternative medicine is defined as those systems that are different from modern Western medicine. This can include herbal, naturopathic, Asian, Eastern, Oriental, Indian (Ayurvedic), African and traditional Chinese medicine (TCM). Alternative medicine practitioners might also be called acupuncturists, registered acupuncturists, holistic practitioners, Chinese medicine practitioners, registered Chinese herbalists, herbalists, naturopathic practitioners, qualified Bowen therapists, trained Reiki practitioners, chiropractors, spiritualists, professional kinesiology practitioners, life coaches, qualified natural therapists or massage therapists. Alternative medicine types include acupuncture, cryotherapy, skin checks, moxibustion, cupping, essential oils, acupressure, basalt stones, temperature, aromatherapy, herbal, massage, saunas, Reiki, ear candling, Akashic record reading, Bowen therapy, Juno counselling, energy therapy, crystal healing, sand play, channel scrubbing, kinesiology, meditation and yoga.

Why go to an alternative medicine practitioner? People suffering from headaches, gastrointestinal, digestion, body pain, arthritis, depression and sleep problems might try alternative medicine. Those with hypersensitivities to man-made chemicals might try alternative medicine. If prescription drugs don't work, you might try naturopathic medicine. The truth is that Mother Nature has provided natural healing herbs. Many man-made drugs attempt to mirror these natural herbs, but add harmful ingredients. Practitioners of alternative medicine use these herbs and natural treatments to cure maladies. Alternative medicine has fewer side effects, tends to be less invasive and offers drug-free pain relief.

Holistic medicine is more likely to focus on your supernatural or spiritual energy levels: "qi" or "chi." Hindus use the concepts of chakras and karma. You don't even need to be sick - you might try massage, yoga or saunas for stress relief. Some treatments might be performed on pets. The process of moxibustion involves the burning of dried mugwort near one of the pressure points on your body. Sonopuncture uses sounds for healing.

The primary associations for alternative medicine in Australia include the Australian Natural Therapists Association (ANTA), Australian Traditional Medicine Association (ATMA), National Herbalist Association of Australia (NHAA), Australian Naturopathic Practitioners Association (ANPA), Australian Acupuncture & Chinese Medicine Association (AACMA), Australian Institute of Kinesiology, Federation of Chinese Medicine Acupuncture Societies of Australia, Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Authority (AHPRA), International Meditation Teachers Association, Australian Register of Naturopaths & Herbalists (ARONAH) and Australian Association of Massage Therapists. These herbalists might have Bachelors in Human Biology, Health Science, Anatomy, Medical Herbalism, Naturopathy, Nutrition or Chemistry. They might have earned a Touch for Health Certificate also.
