Natural Health Education in the 21st Century

Leadership Training Programs For Managers

In recent times, there has been an increased shift toward natural health and wellness programs both here in America and abroad. Part of this evolution is due in part to the noninvasive nature of integrative and complementary medicines; and with the gaining popularity of these effective yet safe, alternative therapies, comes the necessity for natural healing educational courses.

Natural health schools provide a vast array of healing arts programs including acupuncture and Oriental medicine, chiropractic, energy medicine, homeopathy, naturopathy, massage therapy, and reflexology, among others. Some of the more popular natural health classes are designed to introduce individuals to healthcare disciplines like herbal medicine, aromatherapy and Reiki. But what many individuals do not know is that not only can they attain a comprehensive education in one of the aforementioned studies, but some of these courses result in a degree and/or licensure.

As an example, natural health programs in massage therapy almost always require students to become certified and licensed in the field. While many natural healing schools provide 300-hour training hours, a greater number of massage schools have begun offering 500+ hour massage programs to meet National certification standards.

Other natural health schools are much more course-intensive and require three to four years of practical training and education. For example, in a naturopathic program, students have the potential to earn their Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine Degree (ND). In this particular course of study, students learn about homeopathy, herbs, natural pharmacology, somatic education, and other relative subject matter.

Of course there are many other natural health programs from which to choose, however, before enrolling in one, candidates should examine current trends, career outlook, and whether or not the prospective school offers financial aid programs, in addition to accreditation. Like traditional schools and colleges, natural health schools typically provided clinical internships, continuing education courses, and career placement assistance, as well as financial planning services.

If you (or someone you know) are interested in finding natural health therapies, let professional training within fast-growing industries like massage therapy, cosmetology, acupuncture, oriental medicine, Reiki, and others get you started!

Making Your Conference Or Seminar Fun: 5 Ideas to Liven Up the Party

Change Management Courses

Do you know that even though most conferences and seminars allow people to escape the daily grind of the office, many people still hate attending them? That's because most conferences involve sitting around for long periods of time listening to somebody, who is quite boring, talk and talk and talk. This time, when you're in charge of planning the conference or seminar, you're going to liven up the event by making it one that the attendees will never forget. Here are five tips to help you do just that.

1) Offer your attendees a flexible schedule. Mandatory "one time only" meetings are a thing of the past. Identical meetings should be offered several times throughout a day so that people aren't forced to attend a particular meeting.

2) To encourage participants to attend meetings, offer door exciting door prizes and raffles. Forget about coffee mugs and ink pens. Collect donations from convenience stores, hotels, movie theaters, restaurants, and other businesses with convenient locations for your guests. Attendees who manage to attend a preset number of meetings should receive extra prizes.

3) Provide unique, theme related meals each day for conference participants. Nobody wants to eat chicken every day. If your meeting occurs in the winter, why not bring summer to the conference with a beach themed day of hamburgers, hot dogs, and colorful nonalcoholic beverages. Go all out and bring in beach balls and kiddie pools. Another day could be Mexican themed - virgin margaritas for everyone!

4) Coordinate activities outside of the meeting times. For large groups, many theme parks and other attractions offer affordable group rates. Even better, have a meeting at someplace exciting like a local aquarium or a sports facility. After the meeting, head straight into the game or take a tour of the place.

5) It will be hard but try and personally connect with each and every attendee. If you can't do it all yourself, select co-workers who can help you. Don't let any individuals go friendless at a conference. Make people feel wanted, and they'll have the time of their lives.

Your conference does not have to be a dreaded event. With these tips, you can make it one of the most anticipated events of the year.
