In the shadow of conventional managed care systems becoming mangled care systems is a small yet hot fire, burning brightly for a few US citizens and dimly for the rest. Complementary healthcare – using mainstream alternative, traditional and conventional healthcare methods – does a better job overall, can save our troubled healthcare system from collapse, and can allow a truly universal healthcare system.
Employers, government, health insurance companies and powerful interests have made the decisions about healthcare for us, and have created economic restrictions to non-conventional forms of healthcare and wellness.
It is time for us to stand up for our health and wellness, by demanding a full range of healthcare – complementary – from our employers and governments. Please voice your opinion in the most powerful manner possible.

Today, a professional who provides one-on-one support for women during pregnancy, labor and the postpartum period can have many names: Doula, Monitrice, Labor Companion, Childbirth Assistant or Midwife. They all imply a slightly different scope of practice, depending on the experience and education of the care provider.

Holistic Nurses are skilled professionals who demonstrate their expertise in a variety of roles and activities. They regard nursing as an art and science that has a primary purpose to nurture others through service toward an inherent wholeness.

They encourage people to assume personal responsibility for wellness in a way that honors that connection.

Shiatsu is a Japanese healing art deeply rooted in the philosophy and practices of Traditional Chinese Medicine. Incorporating therapeutic massage of Japan, and more recently embracing its original focus of meditation and self healing, Shiatsu is a balance – a dance – between practitioner and receiver, in which the healing power of both build upon each other to clear and balance the vital life force known a Qi.

Most Internet and website search engines will honor quotation marks to combine words into a unique set to home in on proper names or specific phrases.
For example: “CompWellness Network” – both a phrase and a proper name – will find only the two words together in that order versus all occurrences of Complementary or Wellness in any order or combination. An AltaVista.com search with the quotes yields 208 meaningful results, whereas the same search without the quotes yields more than 100,000 very mixed results.
Last week, someone searched for thought field therapy on our site and found 154 results. However, “Thought Field Therapy” produces the 12 results probably desired. Try names of companies, associations, friends or yourself to see what you find.
