Alternative health includes a variety of prevention and treatment approaches that fall outside of conventional medicine. Alternative health practices are often used as a substitute for traditional, “Western” medicine. Examples include acupuncture, chiropractic, energy and herbal treatments. In Grand County, we are confident that when you choose to use an alternative therapist, they will know when and if you need another approach.
However, alternative health can also be used to describe treatment that is complimentary in nature. Meaning, you may choose to have regular massage therapy in addition to using a primary care provider.
