For Immediate Release

Hawai`i’s current healthcare crisis has left many residents looking for other ways to support their health and wellbeing. But the options can be overwhelming and intimidating. What are alternative health practices? Are they safe? And how does a person find the appropriate practitioner?

Dr. Dara Thompson, naturopathic physician, will launch a series of 12 lectures by a wide variety of local alternative health practitioners as part of the University of Hawaii at Hilo College of Continuing Education and Community Services’ spring course offerings. “Exploring the Road Less Traveled in Healthcare” will be held on Wednesdays from January 23 to April 16, 5:30-6:30 pm in UCB 112. Cost is $25 for all 12 classes, with a $5 discount for members of the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute.

Topics will include aromatherapy, naturopathy, homeopathy, huna, herbal medicine, Ihealth, acupuncture, chiropractic medicine, energy work, sei tai shinpo, healing touch and posture and alignment education.
