Holistic, complementary and alternative therapists look at their client’s physical and emotional wellbeing as a whole rather than treating particular symptoms separately.  For example, some therapies focus on the mind, body and spirit or on the flow of energy through the body.


Many of these approaches have roots in ancient Eastern philosophies of health or the kinds of traditional healing methods used widely before the development of the treatment models commonly used by the NHS.   


Although holistic therapies and complementary therapies may seem completely different from conventional beauty therapies, holistic therapies have the same end goal: to enrich a clients life and improve their health and wellbeing.

What is the difference between a ‘complementary’ and an ‘alternative’ therapy?


In general:

  • 'Complementary' describes therapies which may be used alongside treatments offered by GPs (such as yoga, massage and meditation)


  • 'Alternative' describes approaches which are generally meant to replace the treatments offered by a GP (such as Traditional Chinese medicine or Ayurvedic medicine, or herbal remedies such as St John’s Wort) 


Why do you need Holistic Insurance?


Requests for Holistic treatments are becoming as commonplace as conventional beauty treatments and many therapists have a foot firmly in each camp.  Surely it makes great sense to take care of both body, mind and spirit at the same appointment and many holistic therapists seek to improve their client’s health and beauty from the inside out.  


There are a lot of insurers in the market who offer policies specifically for holistic treatments or just beauty treatments but at Professional Beauty Direct we wanted to make buying insurance as streamlined as possible.  Nobody wants to have lots of different policies for their business – it is restrictive, impractical and expensive.  With this in mind, we designed a beauty policy which includes holistic treatments as standard to allow you the freedom to expand your treatment list to suit your client’s needs.


In addition to the wealth of beauty treatments that you would expect, our beauty policy also covers an extensive range of holistic treatments as standard which means you can do as many of these treatments as you are qualified in, all for the same price of just £52.50 per year for self-employed therapists who work from home, mobile and rent rooms in other people’s businesses.
