Natural and Holistic Health Degrees

With a holistic health degree you will focus on alternative or complementary approaches to health and fitness. This focuses on lifestyle, mental well-being and spiritual awareness, thus treating the patient as a whole being. Holistic health programs and natural health programs focus on healing the body through natural means. With herbalist training you learn the art and science of massage therapy, reflexology, energy healing, bodywork, oriental medicine, acupuncture, and acupressure. Holistic health is a philosophy of medical care that sees the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual aspects of life being interconnected. Natural or complementary health is usually associated with alternative medicine, but is increasingly being used in mainstream medical practice as part of a broad view of patient care.
