Integrative Medicine Careers in Georgia - GA By RSWeise, allied health world contributing writer Published:   August 26th, 2010

More and more integrative medicine centers and programs are becoming available in Georgia and throughout the country. As the population ages and the need for medical care increases, people are becoming more frustrated with the rising costs of traditional treatment and medicine. They are more likely to try a complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) therapy. As the demand has risen, hospitals and health care centers in Georgia have increasingly offered complementary therapies as an option for patients, especially through community wellness programs. Although patients may pay for some of these services, others, such as chiropractic and biofeedback, may be covered by some insurance policies.

The Atlanta Medical Center in Atlanta, for example, offers biofeedback as an option for chronic pain management. DeKalb Medical Center in Decatur offers massage therapy and reflexology through its wellness program. WellStar Kennestone Hospital in Marietta offers similar classes for patients, including an art therapy class in which patients can express their inner feelings and frustrations through art.

As the demand for more and more of these types of alternative therapies increases, the need for qualified teachers, instructors, and practitioners will also increase. The job prospects in Georgia will remain good over the next several years, especially as the combined approach of using traditional and non-traditional treatment therapies becomes more common.
