Are you practising multiple modalities?


“As a Reiki Practitioner and Lifestyle Coach, I highly appreciate the support and guidance offered through membership and insurance with IICT as well as their online community group and resources.”
~ Angie, Lifestyling with Energy

“One of the ways that IICT stands out to me as a professional practitioner and member of the organisation is the level of professionalism and access to ready-to-go marketing materials. The member portal truly is a help, especially when establishing a new practice or sole trader business. In my experience, this is quite different to other member organisations. Thank you, IICT.”
~ Dijana Harris

“Over the years I’ve joined a few different associations and I have found IICT to be the most informative and valuable. They have so many amazing offers for members, from networking, information on a range of modalities, discounts for further study, marketing information and more. I love the articles they share on their blog across a broad range of topics. If you are looking for a professional industry body, I highly recommend IICT.”
~ Natalie Jane

“I joined IICT as a means of accessing liability insurance that was specific to the complementary therapy industry. The affiliation with this professional organisation helps give added assurance to customers of my practice, The Balanced Dog, which is based in Christchurch, New Zealand. I have a canine practice and so much of the material produced for members is not relevant to me, but I have other professional memberships for this purpose.” 
~ Kathleen Crisley

“I was an IICT member nine years ago and re-joined again in 2021 with the increase of Zoom consultations.
