What Is Complementary Medicine?

Complementary medicine is the term used to describe therapeutic treatments that are given in addition to conventional medicine. Examples of these treatments include reflexology, acupuncture, yoga and aromatherapy. All these treatments have one aspect in common - they treat the patient's body and mind as parts that work together as a system, instead of treating only some specific symptoms. In the USA, the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine emphasizes that people should always talk to their conventional doctor before they add any complementary treatments to their conventional treatment.
