Here we’ll share contact information for holistic doctors, practitioners, and health coaches
While we work on our database, get started by visiting the International Health Coach Association.
One of the first areas we’ll address, by request from someone new to the area, is craniosacral therapy and osteopathy. Adjustment of the cranial bones and attention to the cerebral-spinal fluid can greatly assist with specific conditions, including sensory issues, and can help the body to self-correct.
Some of the many gifted practitioners who work with families include the following.
