Topics to Add When Creating an Alternate and Modern Medicine Web Directory


Visitors: 434

Alternate medicine finds its own place in the hearts and minds worldwide and has a separate following to back its existence. There are many subcategories that could be added to the modern and alternate medicine website directories. Although the list below is not exhaustive it is a good start. After looking at multiple directories in the web that just places everything into one big category “health related websites”. I thought it’s time to present some categories in this vibrant segment of the web; there are lot’s of websites in this category which need a separate home in the directories. Even in the High PR and traffic rich directories finding the right websites gets tough by browsing the whole category. For your reference a single line definition obtained from wikipedia is placed under each category.

  • Acupuncture - a therapeutic technique intended to promote health and well-being, which involves the insertion of needles into “acupuncture points" on the body by trained practitioners.

  • Alexander technique - a study of freeing response that is taught by studying one's own mannerisms of posture.
