How we provide trustworthy, accessible, and accurate information


When it comes to your health, choosing a therapy, or choosing a therapist, you need to feel confident in the choices you make and in the information that helps you make them. That’s why it’s important for us to share with you how we decide to share what we do.

Today, a simple online search for Complementary Therapies can leave you convinced that you are entering the world of ‘woo’ and untrustworthy claims. You need easy-to-understand and balanced advice that won’t alarm you, advice that’s written by unbiased medical and CAM experts who know what they’re talking about and who genuinely care.

It’s our duty and responsibility to make sure you actually understand what you’re reading—and that it doesn’t leave you feeling skeptical or confused. We work hard to break down all the different belief systems, reflect the latest research, and present the most accurate information in a way that empowers you to take an active role in making your choices 

Find A Therapy understands that choosing a therapy is a journey, so we intend to be your guide along the way, equipping you with the information necessary to continue making informed and actionable choices.  We have a goal to help millions of people find a therapy that is suited to them, and to raise the standard and awareness of Complementary Therapies.

We have one mission— Make Complementary Therapies Mainstream and equip the public with confidence in making choices about their health.

You come to Find A Therapy to get accurate information about Complementary Therapies, so it’s our responsibility to set high standards about the information we provide to you and how we represent Complementary Therapies. Our news and educational content strive to be unbiased, balanced, timely, actionable, research-backed, honest, and comprehensive.

Our team creates and edits every piece of content based on what we feel is the most important when discussing complementary therapies and here’s how we ensure we meet these standards:

Subject-Matter Expert Writers

Our writers and contributors are notable voices in their respective disciplines.  These individuals are specifically selected for both their extensive knowledge and real-world experience, as well as their ability to communicate complex information in a clear, helpful, and unbiased way.  

We want to make sure that everything we publish is accessible and understandable to our readers. To ensure this, our writers and editors are focusing on readability, clarity, empathy, inclusivity, real-life application, quality sourcing, and clear citations.

Beyond transparency, we use conscious, respectful language that promotes inclusivity and compassion. Our writiers use empathetic language to tell unbiased stories, and we make intentional choices to remove stigma, stereotypes, and to avoid injecting bias.

 

Editorial Team

Our highly-skilled editorial team manages all of our content. Each individual piece of content has several people behind it working to make sure that it’s responsible, accurate, understandable, helpful, trustworthy, comprehensive, up-to-date, and inclusive. 

Here at Find A Therapy, conscious language is an ongoing commitment. We regularly engage with community advocates and research language trends within both the CAM and Allopathic Health communities. We choose our words carefully, seeking to combat stigmas and empower our readers.

As language evolves, we evolve with it. We also understand health touches each of us differently, so we respect people’s choice of words when sharing their personal stories. Ultimately, we can’t be a true CAM ally unless we put you at the center of everything we do. Our use of language reflects this view. 

Further, our Editorial Team has experienced fact-checkers who provide a critical step in our commitment to content integrity. Fact-checkers rigorously review articles for accuracy, relevance, and timeliness. We use only the most current and reputable primary references, including peer-reviewed medical journals, government organizations, academic institutions, and advocacy associations.

We fact-check medical statements, claims, and suggestions with the most current primary references, including peer-reviewed medical journals, government organizations, academic institutions, and advocacy associations. Sources are listed both inline and at the bottom of every article. 

 

Medical Expert Board

In some instances, we seek the input of allopathic health professionals—who vet content containing statements of medical fact. They provide the necessary critique that ensures our information is completely non-biased toward promoting CAM in an unethical way.

If improvements are suggested, they are shared directly with our editorial team to be addressed and implemented immediately.

 

 

Up-to-Date Information

Oftentimes, Health information changes.  New research emerges, old ideas are disproven, and terminology becomes out of date.

At Find A Therapy, we continually monitor and update our content to make sure we’re sharing the most up-to-date and accurate information possible.  If needed, content is re-worked, re-edited, and re-certified by our Subject-Matter Expert Writers and Medical Experts.

You may see a few dates on our content. Each of these refers to a different step in our editorial process.
