Choosing a therapist

It is important to choose a qualified complementary therapy practitioner. Many therapies have regulatory bodies that will help you to find a therapist. Some palliative care services may have contacts for complementary services.

The UK website Macmillan Cancer Support provides some helpful tips on choosing a therapist. The Australian Natural Therapists Association has information on natural therapies and finding a registered practitioner.
