This qualification will prepare you to work within a healthcare setting providing complementary therapies for clients who are suffering life limiting conditions or who are critically frail.

These therapies are delivered alongside orthodox treatments, often within the healthcare setting, with the aim of providing psychological and emotional support through the relief of symptoms.
It is a requirement that you are a qualified complementary therapist holding a Level 3 qualification in at least one of the three main disciplines of complementary therapies, namely - aromatherapy, reflexology and massage. Anatomy and physiology knowledge at Level 3 is a mandatory requirement.
