Hello and Welcome!

At IICT, everything we do and believe in is about challenging the status quo.

As an independent professional industry body that provides membership, insurance, resources, and a global community for complementary therapists, we believe in thinking differently and truly serving our members based on what they need.

We accept all qualified practitioners equally and fairly based on appropriate industry standards for over 1,100 complementary therapy modalities.

IICT is the best fit for complementary therapists who practice multiple modalities, as we remove the need to join an expensive association for each modality. We cover them all for you in one simple membership, with guaranteed access to the industry’s most competitively priced insurance cover and no continued education requirements.

With the world’s largest list of complementary therapy modalities and an international community across 35+ countries, we invite you to join us at IICT for all your complementary therapy practice needs.

You can be sure that if you practice it, we cover it.
