Tips on How to Afford Alternative Therapies

Have you ever thought of trying alternative therapies for chronic illness and pain? And if post for HealthCentral, I looked into ways of making them affordable:

This can include acupuncture, chiropractic care, naturopathy, massage, and others. Unfortunately, they tend to be expensive. This post offers information on creative ways to access alternative therapies.

Some are covered outright and you can go ahead and make the appointment yourself. Others may require a doctor’s referral in order to be covered."
