Natural and physical therapists help people with physical impairments or disabilities with the aim of enhancing their quality of life through better movement. Even the most simple of tasks can prove hugely frustrating for certain people and this is where therapists step in to allow patients to perform these activities with more ease.

A therapist might use a variety of approaches and tools to assist in the application of treatment. These can range from manual exercises and massage through to the practice of daily living tasks such as making a cup.

Natural therapy is most commonly considered part of the alternative medicine sphere of treatment and might include the following practices:

  • Homeopathy
  • Osteopathy
  • Acupuncture
  • Reflexology
  • Aromatherapy
  • Therapeutic massage
  • Acupressure
  • Reiki

We’ll try to cover as many of these as possible among the many other forms of healing that form part of natural therapy.

In more recent time, natural and holistic medicine has garnered an increasing amount of support from the healthcare world. Science is beginning to show genuine benefits to many of the treatments available and also how many different conditions can potentially combine these natural practices into a treatment plan.
