About Holistic Medicine
The society was formed originally in 1980 to act as a source of information for it’s members. It also obtained for it’s members oils, herbs and equipment at a large discount. Since then, it has been restructured and is now a professional organisation that also runs training courses (including adult education programs and courses for training education councils)
All holistic therapists that belong to this organisation must complete a 5 year training course with supervised training. After this period, all therapists must also attend regular training courses to qualify for full membership.
The society also keeps a register of qualified therapists for use by the general public, health centres and local health authorities who require qualified therapists.
