first_imgThe Dominica State College (DSC) Faculty of Health Sciences hosted a health exposition with the tagline ‘Holistic Care + Childbearing Families = Healthy Society’ on Thursday, May 4th, 2017 at the Peebles Park. Student of the DSC, Steffi Marie stated that the exposition is based on complimentary alternative medicine and highlights different healing approaches that derive from countries such as China, Tibet, and Africa. Marie stated that many of these medicinal approaches have been used for many years, but we have not realized the significance of it. “Over the past ten years, the western world has decided to start implementing eastern healing approaches into our health services,” she stated. Mari stated that here in Dominica, they are trying to make the public aware of complimentary alternative medicine practices.The exposition showcased different types of alternative medicine including transcendental and psychotherapy, music therapy, acupuncture, physical activities, agro-pro therapy which means herbal therapy, and heat therapy including saunas and hot stone massages. “We are hoping that this exposition meets our objectives which are raising the awareness of this type of medicine approaches from the public, and actually getting them to come on board and making it part of their lifestyle to be a better and healthier being,” Marie stated. – / 33 Share Share Share Tweetcenter_img Sharing is caring!
