Introducing our Platinum Sponsor:

The Federation of Holistic Therapists (FHT)

The Federation of Holistic Therapists is the UK and Ireland’s leading professional association for complementary, holistic beauty and sports therapists. For more than 50 years, it has been helping to protect the public by developing and promoting high standards in therapy education and practice.

As well as supporting its members with a range of services and benefits, including tailor-made insurance and International Therapist magazine, the FHT holds the largest Accredited Register of complementary therapists to have been independently approved by the Professional Standards Authority for Health and Social Care, a body accountable to parliament. By choosing a practitioner who is part of this government-backed scheme, the public, health care commissioners and employers can be confident that they are choosing a complementary therapist they can trust.

Complementary therapists can help to support both the public and the medical workforce in a variety of ways – from helping patients to make positive lifestyle changes and manage their own health and symptoms, to addressing ‘effectiveness gaps’ and creating cost and time efficiencies within the NHS.

Therapies currently listed on the FHT’s Accredited Register include: Alexander technique, aromatherapy, body massage, Bowen technique, craniosacral therapy, healing, homeopathy, hypnotherapy, kinesiology, microsystems acupuncture, naturopathy, nutritional therapy, reflexology, reiki, shiatsu, sports massage, sports therapy, yoga therapy.
