Why 8,000+ natural therapists in 26 different countries trust us to save on insurance costs, cut down on paperwork and grow their natural therapy businesses…


Here’s how we helped one of our members, watch this short video now.




 If you’re anything like me, you started your practice to help people - not to spend hours every day worrying about associations and insurance. But the reality is that as your business grows, you eventually reach a point when professional affiliation and insurance are a necessary step.

For a long time, the only option available to therapists were traditional associations.

Unfortunately, many of these old-fashioned associations started before the explosion in popularity of natural health therapies. So they often only represent one particular modality. That means therapists who practice multiple modalities had to join several associations, which is very costly and time-consuming.


The International Institute of Complementary
Therapists Solves This Problem


My name is Lawrence Ellyard. I’m the founder of The International Institute of Complementary Therapists (IICT) - an independent organisation with more than 8,000 members world-wide. I started the IICT in 2002 to represent therapists who practiced multiple therapies, but did not necessarily require professional affiliation with associations for each one.

At first, we recognised 120 natural therapy modalities. However, as our membership grew over the years this list has expanded. Now we cover more than 1,200 therapies - the largest modality list in the world.

And we actively assist you in the approval process if your modality is not already covered.

Today, members praise IICT as the association alternative for the natural therapy industry. No matter how many modalities you do, you can cover everything under one membership and one insurance.
