Natural Therapist Courses

A Natural Therapist treats patients using a range of natural techniques such as aromatherapy, massage or herbal medicine. You might specialise in a particular type of therapy or use a combination of practices. Natural Therapists assess the needs of their patients and develop a treatment plan. You might see clients regularly or treat their issues occasionally as they arise.

To be a Natural Therapist you’ll need to be passionate about helping people and using natural techniques. You should be understanding and have excellent listening skills. Natural Therapists should have good attention to detail but also be able to see the bigger picture when it comes to their client’s health needs. It’s important that you are flexible and work well with other health professionals.
