Using spinal manipulation, a chiropractor may help with a variety of problems that includes neck pain, headaches, incontinence and high blood pressure.

2. Holistic Health Practitioner -  A doctor who uses methods to treat a whole person, as opposed to just a single affected area, is a holistic health practitioner. Natural Healers, a resource for people interested in holistic health education, notes a practitioner will consider a patient's physical, mental, emotional and spiritual state while diagnosing and prescribing treatment.

3. Holistic Nursing - According to the New York College of Health Professionals, holistic nursing uses a highly effective system of manipulation to balance how energy moves through the body. By helping the energy become balanced, nurses help patients achieve their optimum levels of health.
