I don’t consult in the conventional medical system, I go to alternative therapies for my needs: homeopathy, acupuncture, herbalism, osteopathy. I rely on word-of-mouth a lot so it’s not obvious where to start whenever I move to a new region. I do wish the modalities I choose would be covered by public health insurance and be accessible to all. I am a manual therapist myself, and some of my clients stop consulting me when their insurance for the year runs out, while others prioritize my approach in spite of expenses. Either way I don’t think money should be a consideration in their choice of self-care.
