Natural therapy work to increase

EMPLOYMENT opportunities in the complementary therapies industry are expected to increase in the next five years, according to a report by the Department of Training and Employment.

The finding was based on a significant increase in the use of natural therapies by consumers and the growing acceptance by mainstream health professionals of complementary therapies such as acupuncture, naturopathy and Chinese medicine.

Department of Training and Employment chief executive Ian Hill said the report highlighted training needs that related to growing demand for these services.

“These include massage therapy skills relevant to working with patients in general wards in hospitals, aged care, palliative care, psychiatric care, the pre-natal and post-natal field and caring for people with disabilities,” Mr Hill said.
