I am creating a website for a craniosacraltherapist. Having discussed keywords with my client she suggested the following:
Womens Health
Blood pressure
Back pain
Alternative Medicine
Chronic fatigue syndrome

Is this too general a list? Should it be more targetted to one or two areas in order for the site to have a chance on the search engines? I would really appreciate any expert feedback/suggestions for this list.

Yes too general. A quick look at the goto.com suggestion tool was revealing. Those kw's you have listed are so competitive, you'd be lucky to get a dozen hits a day off them. Narrow down the focus.

When I'm looking for keyword I start with a general list, similar to what you have listed here, and then I try to get into the head (no pun intended) of the people who will most likely be searching for what I am offering. These are not the highest numbers from GoTo, as you've initially displayed, but I think they are more focused. People with these problems would benefit from the services.

Health is so general a term and if you were ever to get top placement, probably a miracle. Who are you going to attract? This is a very specific therapy and I would promote it as such.

migraine headaches
chronic fatigue
traumatic brain injury
spinal cord injury
emotional difficulties
central nervous system disorders
learning disabilities
orthopedic problems
post-traumatic stress disorder
tension related problems
stress problems
