This course is formatted at the graduate level of study. It is intended to provide you with the theory, knowledge and application of “mind-body-spirit” health care interventions. You will find this course of great interest and will experience more enlightenment into other dimensions of health care outside of bio-physiological diagnostics and modalities. You will also study relaxation techniques that can be used in clinical practice.
