Complementary Therapies are healing techniques that have existed in Western as well as other cultures for centuries. They often complement and enhance traditional Western medicine and psychotherapy. At ClearPath we have always collaborated with practitioners of various complementary approaches in order to enhance our psychotherapeutic services. Following are the descriptions of some of these methods as well as information regarding practitioners who, although working out of their own offices, remain in close association and collaboration with us at ClearPath
