Online Alternative Medicine Degrees and Careers


As people seek more alternative forms of medicine, more people with degrees or certificates in alternative medicine from a national holistic institute are needed to meet this demand. Ranging from specialties like acupuncture to massage therapy, alternative medicine is gaining respect and popularity. Medical doctors may even prescribe or suggest acupuncture or massage therapy as a part of a traditional medical treatment, though acupuncture school and massage therapy school are often required to become employed.

Acupuncture, for example, is enjoying increased success. A certificate or degree in acupuncture from an acupuncture school lends credibility to practitioners of the art. Acupuncture schools vary in the types of programs they offer.

Massage therapy, which also has a regulated system of certification, is another field enjoying growing success. Massage therapists can obtain certification after 500 hours of instruction. Massage therapy schools or a national holistic institute offer programs of varying lengths and emphases. As people become more comfortable with these alternative types of medicine, they will turn to qualified, certified professionals for treatment.
