Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Therapeutic landscapes are places, settings, situations, locales, and milieus that encompass both the physical and psychological environments associated with treatment or healing, and the maintenance of health and well-being. Practices from holistic medicine--also known as nonconventional, alternative, complementary or traditional medicine--are used to illustrate specific humanistic concepts in further examining therapeutic landscapes. In addition to contributing to a theoretically-informed health geography, this paper further develops the concept of therapeutic landscapes and the understanding of holistic medicine.
