Alternative health practitioner in Chemnitz, Germany
Alternative Health Practitioner
The profession of alternative health practitioner is an independent and liberal complementary medical profession regulated by Germany & Naturopathic Practitioner Law. Because alternative practitioners practice their art independently and under their own sole responsibility.
You are not required to first get a referral. By complementing conventional medical options with a wide spectrum of alternative treatment methods, alternative practitioners make an indispensable contribution to therapeutic diversity and freedom. And thereby fulfil an important social responsibility.
The alternative health practitioner activity to diagnose, alleviate and cure illness is based on the tradition of naturopathy, which in diagnosis and therapy was based on the holistic health and was based on the laws of nature.
Before starting his activity an alternative health practitioner, must prove by law, that he has the same medical knowledge as a written and oral examination in front of a commission at the responsible medical officer.
Ackermann College of Chiropractic + Master of Chiropractic
The Ackermann College of Chiropractic is part of the Ackermann Institute for alternative medicine in Sweden founded in 1968 by Dr. W. P. Ackermann. After his studies of natural medicine in the Scandinavian country, Dr. W. P. Ackermann became a licensed alternative health practitioner in Germany.
After then studying chiropractics in the USA and England, he founded the Ackermann College of Chiropractic to teach his own developments in diagnosis and treatment based on the American chiropractic model.
Since its founding, the Ackermann College of Chiropractic has trained thousands of therapists across the German-speaking world and enjoys worldwide recognition as a renowned training centre for physicians and alternative practitioners alike.
As Dr. W. P. Ackermann was the personal therapist to the Swedish queen, Ackermann College proudly displays the Swedish flag and crown in its coat of arms.
Pursuant Swedish law, the title of Master of Chiropractic is awarded following successful completion of theoretical and practical coursework at the Ackermann College of Chiropractic in Stockholm.
My title of Master of Chiropractic is thus not an academic degree but rather a certification of the specific diagnostic and therapeutic abilities I mastered in research courses at Ackermann College of Chiropractic Stockholm.
