We believe it is important to provide a foundation from which it is possible to make available the discoveries of the 'grassroots' explorers to those of advanced academic background, and to supply a conduit through which researchers can make their discoveries available to practitioners. It is our goal to provide a place where we can come together and share our knowledge and wisdom into an eclectic, living, melting pot of information and dialogue.

In an effort to achieve a higher standard in educational excellence, training requirements for Certified Instructors of IACT mandate a curriculum with a minimum of 220 hours of course instruction. The training hours include, but are not limited to physical classroom attendance. Training hours are cumulative and may include: internship, supervised practice, homework, reading assignments, and research. Many of our instructors teach courses that exceed our 220 hour minimum requirement.
Founded in 1990, by Steven and Jillian LaVelle, IACT established a reputation for providing their members with an outstanding magazine entitled "Unlimited Human!" It's goal was to reach beyond the ordinary and provide the complementary healthcare community with a premier magazine that highlighted special articles; and ideas that could ultimately help members in their business, professional and personal lives. Previous editions featured articles by and about such luminaries as Dr. Bernie Segal, Dr. Jean Houston and Dr. Deepak Chopra.
More than ever before there is an undeniable urgency for complementary healthcare practitioners to unite. Our vision is to light the path of unity by providing a place where practitioners can come together under one umbrella; to explore, indulge and renew their passion for diverse holistic healthcare disciplines
