Making A Success Of Complementary Therapies with Anatomy and Physiology

Published on 19th March 2021


The use of practitioner-led complementary therapies has seen a steady increase in popularity over the years in the UK. More and more people are using therapies to complement their healthcare needs. Interestingly, this is despite the fact that there is still no professional statutory regulation of complementary and alternative treatments in the UK, although to be insured a good qualifiction in anatomy, physiology and pathology is required. 

This acceptance and demand for complementary therapies may be in part due to how seriously the industry takes its own responsibility for professional training and qualifications. The leading examination board The International Therapy Examination Council pioneered the way over 60 years ago in developing professional qualifications. 

ITEC level 3 Certificate in Anatomy, Physiology and Pathology for the Complementary Therapist 

One of the most experienced business leaders in professional training, Gill Tree, carefully selected the ITEC level 3 Certificate in Anatomy, Physiology and Pathology for the Complementary Therapist  for her School of Massage over 25 years ago. This was an inspired choice. Thousands of Complementary Therapists have since qualified in Anatomy and Physiology under Gill’s leadership and the number is increasing year on year.

Why study Anatomy and Physiology?

Anyone hoping to work in complementary or alternative therapies is advised to gain a professional qualification in anatomy, physiology and pathology. A comprehensive, working knowledge of the human body is the absolute foundation of a successful therapy practice.

The Level 3 ITEC certificate in anatomy and physiology, offered as an e-course by Gill Tree Training, provides the springboard from which therapists can grow their own practice and join the ranks of therapists offering healthcare solutions and support.

Further evidence of the recognition of complementary therapies is the fact that next week is Complementary Therapies Week (22nd – 28th March 2021).
