Complementary and alternative therapies

Two people talking

Complementary and alternative therapies cover a very wide range of treatments.

These include:

  • Body-based therapies, like massage or acupuncture
  • Meditation-based therapies, like mindfulness
  • Herbal remedies, like St John's wort

While the NHS provides some of these, others are based on different ideas of healing and wellbeing than those we normally hear about in the UK.
