The awards are now open for entry. The closing date for entries is 15 November 2021.
The Complementary Therapy Awards aim to recognise and reward best practice and show how complementary therapy can work effectively alongside mainstream health and social care to benefit individuals, carers and their families.

There are four categories to enter this year:
Wellbeing: share how you have used your skills as a therapist to bring comfort, health or relaxation to your community. We want to hear how your innovation and creativity have enabled you to continue to support your clients’ needs despite many barriers and restrictions.
Palliative care: looking for examples of how therapies improved quality of life, sleep and pain management for those receiving palliative and end of life care. We are looking for outstanding examples of how therapists have made a difference to people and their families during the pandemic.
Mental health: highlighting the work of practitioners working with people with mental health problems; tell us how you have continued to help those suffering from anxiety, mild depression, loneliness, burn-out or work-related stress.
Pain management: sharing how people have been helped with improving pain perception and pain management, perhaps where orthodox medicine has run its course.
You have until 15th November to enter.
The Integrative Health Convention
The Integrative Health Convention is the UK’s largest annual integrative health event featuring expert speakers from a variety of fields in conventional medicine, complementary therapy, and self-care with topics ranging from Acupuncture to Ayurveda, Mindfulness to Yoga, QiGong to Hypnosis, and Nutrition to NLP. The Convention is being held virtually on 11 February culminating in the Complementary Therapy Awards ceremony.
The College of Medicine advocates a new attitude to healthcare: one which forges partnerships across society, emphasises prevention and a multi-faceted approach and empowers a healthier, happier population.
