 Alternative Therapies - a Particular Strength of the German Healthcare System
 Germany has a worldwide reputation for its openness to alternative approaches and for the wide range of alternative therapies available here. Some of these therapies have evolved in Germany, like homeopathy, the Kneipp method, isopathy, Manfred von Ardenne's oxygen therapy etc. In other cases you will find that therapies developed somewhere else in the world are represented a very large number of well educated and experienced practitioners in Germany. For example you will find very high numbers of therapists for the following therapies in Germany: acupressure and acupuncture, Alexander method, Eutony, Feldenkrais method, Kinesiology, reflexology, Rolfing, Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). Some people say that outside of India and its neighbouring countries Germany has the best Ayurvedic therapists. Germany has a very large number of so called "Heilpraktiker" (health practitioners) who usually specialise in some kinds of alternative approaches, but also there are many thousands of "regular" doctors who possess a good knowledge of alternative and natural therapies and use them in their work.
 Please be aware that German Medicine Net will not recommend such therapies unless you request them and there is a strong possibility that other treatments options might not help. The responsibility for choosing a certain treatment remains with the patient in the end. We will assist to our best knowledge with this.
