Many allopathic physicians now readily accept mind-body approaches such as biofeedback, music therapy, and hypnosis. These practices, once considered unconventional, have been shown to be efficacious and are now assimilated into current standards of care. Consistent with their preference for holistic medical care, an increasingly knowledgeable patient population is now fueling the CAM movement by seeking alternatives to traditional treatments. These therapies include, but are not limited to, acupuncture, massage therapy, herbal medicines and mind-body techniques.
