Course overview

Complementary therapies are used to help people to feel better and may improve quality of life.

Complementary therapies typically take a holistic approach to your physical and mental health. They consider all aspects of your physical and emotional wellbeing as a whole. Complementary therapies focus on the mind, body and spirit or on the flow of energy through the body.

You will study the following therapies:

Body massage therapy is where a therapist presses, rubs and manipulates the body’s soft tissues. Massage is mainly used for relaxation and general wellbeing, but some people also use it to manage aches and pains.

Reflexology is a type of foot massage. The idea behind it is that there are zones running through your body that are linked to parts of your feet. By pressing and massaging parts of your feet a therapist can improve your blood supply and bring balance to your body.

Aromatherapy is the use of essential oils which come from plants to help relieve conditions, injuries, or to preserve wellness.

You will learn both the theoretical knowledge and practical skills to be able to carry out assessments upon clients to identify the therapy that would most benefit them, how to deliver a high standard of client care, the application of therapies and how to evaluate them and the impact they’ve had.
