Complementary Therapies

Complementary Therapists treat the whole person through a range of skills such as reflexology, aromatherapy and body massage.

Complementary therapies take a holistic approach to your physical and mental health. This means that they consider all aspects of your physical and emotional wellbeing as a whole, rather than treating particular symptoms separately. These therapies not only enable you to pursue a career in the beauty industry but there are increasing opportunities for Complementary Therapists in healthcare settings where these therapies are used to support conventional treatments.
