Complementary therapists provide popular treatments for relaxing and pampering at beauty salons and spas. Complementary therapists may also find employment within the health services (such as the NHS in the UK) providing valuable support to doctors’ services, long-term hospital patients, within hospices and care homes. Self-employed complementary therapists often have bust practices within therapy centres, from home, or as a mobile service.
