Affordable Holistic Care Directory
Whether it calls itself conventional
or holistic, healthcare must be accessible for all. Unfortunately,
most Americans cannot afford to regularly receive fee-for-service
holistic healthcare as it is typically practiced today, particularly in
this difficult economic climate.
Published in 2009-2010 in collaboration with the non-profit Integrative Medicine Alliance, the Affordable Holistic Care Directory seeks to make complementary/alternative medical care accessible to all by publicizing innovative cost-cutting practices, volunteerism, and compassionate pricing in holistic care throughout New England. The directory features acupuncturists, bodyworkers, energy healers and other holistic caregivers who are providing free care or who are accepting $35 or less for their services, as well as classes (e.g. yoga, t'ai chi) that cost less than $10 per session.
