More People Turn To Complementary Therapy

A recent survey has revealed that more people are turning to complementary therapies to treat their ailments or simply for relaxation and well-being.

The University of Ulster’s research found that 29% of people interviewed had received some form of complementary and alternative medicine over the past twelve months, with women aged between 35 and 54 the biggest users.

Professor Suzanne McDonough said, ‘Compared to previous surveys in the UK there is an increasing use of CAM (complementary and alternative medicine), with over 75% still being provided outside the National Health Service, indicating that the general population is willing to pay for these treatments’.

The most popular therapies, in order, are aromatherapy, reflexology, massage therapy, acupuncture, chiropractic, herbal medicine, relaxation and spirit coaches. Usage ranged from just over 14% for aromatherapy to 9% for relaxation.
