These titles may include, but are not limited to, practices such as: Traditional Chinese Medicine, Acupuncture, Naturopathy, Kinesiology, Homeopathy, Herbal Medicine, Massage, Art Therapy, Psychotherapy, and Counselling. If your course does not meet the minimum requirements stipulated by the relevant regulatory body(s), your students and graduates may not be eligible for insurance in that region.
