Public information

The Federation of Holistic Therapists (FHT) is the leading professional association for complementary, holistic beauty and sports therapists. We help you to find a therapist who is qualified, insured and who follows our strict Code of Conduct and Professional Practice. Now that's reassuring.

While our primary job is to represent the interests of our members, we also have a duty to protect the public who use our members’ services.

When choosing a member of the FHT, you can rest assured that your therapist:

  • has qualifications that meet national minimum standards;
  • is insured to practise those therapies they are qualified in;
  • abides by the FHT Code of Conduct and Professional Practice;
  • is subject to a robust disciplinary procedure if a formal complaint is made.

There are a number of guidelines opposite that we hope will prove useful in your search for an appropriate therapist.

Please note that any treatments you have should be complementary to your usual medical care. Never use a complementary therapy in place of medical treatment.

If you are currently under the care of your doctor or another health professional, please be sure to let them know if you are having any complementary therapies.
