The practice of natural medicine is holistic. This means that a properly trained natural medicine practitioner will consider the person, not a named health condition. Of course symptom relief is important and is one of the aims of a holistic natural medicine treatment. However in addition the holistic practitioner will also consider areas such as a person’s lifestyle and diet to identify the possible underlying causes of a loss of full wellbeing.
The holistic practice of natural medicine also extends to the most appropriate modality, or type of therapy, both for the individual and the presenting health concerns. The properly trained natural medicine practitioner is well qualified to offer advice and guidance here. However it is often the person seeking better health who will first make this decision, based on their already known likes and dislikes, perhaps even their ‘gut feeling’.
This page therefore is to assist persons locate the most appropriate therapy for them and their concerns, and to take the first step along the path of a holistic natural medicine treatment.

Once you have settled on a therapy/modality (or even more than just one) which you feel suits you at this time, just click on ‘Find A Therapist’ above to search for the appropriate ATMS accredited therapist.
