I have had the pleasure and privilege of being associated with the School of Natural Health Sciences for the last seventeen years as a course designer and writer and, in more recent years, as a tutor. Because of my long and enjoyable association with the School, when Julia Vaughan-Griffiths (School Principal) asked me to compile a book to assist potential students, and to introduce and de-mystify some of the terminology and practices in the various healing modalities available in holistic therapies, I was naturally delighted to undertake this task.

The world of holistic medicine brings together a fascinating range of studies that enables the serious student to become a dedicated Holistic Practitioner in their chosen subject, or range of subjects, to the benefit of themselves and their clients. In order to enable the student to achieve professional proficiency in their chosen therapies it is necessary to provide suitable training courses in a wide range of therapies at a professional level.

The School of Natural Health Sciences has worked very hard for more than twenty one years to achieve just that – a wide range of accredited professional holistic therapy training courses are available on-line to students all over the English speaking world at a modest cost. The School’s success may be judged from the many thousands of students who have trained with the school and established their own successful Holistic Therapy practices.

I trust that this book will provide the reader with an understanding of holistic therapy in its many forms. Furthermore I hope that many readers will feel inspired to study one or several of the diverse holistic therapies offered by SNHS, who in turn become proficient practitioners to the benefit of all.
