What exactly is traditional naturopathy?
In traditional naturopathy coursework, we teach spa and weather therapies, such as thalassotherapy, balneotherapy, heliotherapy, red light therapy, and more. These are life-changing modalities that will change your personal lifestyle overnight. It's worth it all just for that benefit.
As the school's founder, this is probably one of my favorite learning aspects of the entire Rockwell Tri-Doctorate Certification Program® (RTD).
I personally eat, live, and breathe the spa therapies, the biggest benefit of which, most can be done from home, as they help with stress management and anti-aging.
There are two kinds of naturopathy, licensed and traditional. Licensed naturopathy has two designations, ND (Naturopathic Doctor) or NMD (Naturopathic Medical Doctor), and are considered licensed physicians who attended med school.
We train our naturopaths in the original sense of the discipline, which is how naturopaths were classically and historically taught before the advent of licensure.
Rockwell traditional naturopaths can use one of two professional designations based on preference, TND, Traditional Naturopathic Doctor®, or DTN, Doctor of Traditional Naturopathy®.
Not all states license or allow the practice of traditional or licensed naturopathy, so graduate trainees residing in states or countries with restrictions may waive the naturopath title and use RCHHP for Rockwell Certified Holistic Health Professional® instead.
