Complementary

A therapy is called complementary when it is used in addition to conventional treatments. 

National Center for Complementary Medicine defines complementary and alternative medicine as those healthcare practices not currently considered an integral part of conventional medicine. It covers a broad range of healing therapies, approaches, and systems. Some examples of complementary and alternative medicine include acupuncture, herbs, homeopathy, chiropractic, hypnosis, and traditional oriental medicine.
