Frequently Asked Questions

A)        Are Naturotherapies regulated within the Provinces, Territories or at the Federal level?

At this time we know that some sub-groups within the Naturotherapies spectrum (such as Massage Therapists) do require special licensing within provinces and territories. It is best to make a call to your community offices for any specific requirements.

B)         What is a ‘Registered Integrative Naturotherapist’?

Our school has ‘coined’ this terminology as its’ own.  The Registered Integrative Naturotherapist terminology is Trademarked ™.  We want to provide individuals who are studying Reiki, Integrative Intuition and Energy Therapies a designation to represent the great amount of commitment and awareness that comes with their studies.  You will be able to provide far more than a typical Reiki treatment or Intuitive session when you have completed your studies.  You will be aware of the many levels of energy and consciousness at work while you are in session with your client and you will know how to incorporate numerous skills to support them.  You will ‘integrate’ all that you know in one session to provide the most comprehensive session for improved health and awareness for your client. You will also be able to encourage your client to utilize the services of other medical or alternative health-care professionals, thereby offering an integrative alliance for their greatest good.

C)         Will I be able to provide insurance forms to my clients?

There are some areas of Canada where you will be able to provide insurance forms for your clients.  This is determined by your hours of study with us and membership with the Association of Naturopaths and Naturotherapists of Canada. We presently believe that you can provide receipts in Quebec, New Brunswick, PEI and Newfoundland.

Market Trends

Very good reasons to consider a career in Naturotherapies...

  • By 2026 - 25% of the population will be 65 and over and in need of having greater health care.
  • The average health care expenditures per household have grown at a relatively fast pace, with an average annual growth rate of 5.7% from 1982 to 2002.
    It is speculated that the demand for services within the alternative health care industry will continue to grow, fueled in part by Canada's aging population and the increase           in chronic illness.
  • Findings from British Columbia's Fraser Institute study titled Complementary and Alternative Medicine in Canada: Trends in Use and Public Attitudes, 1997-2006 include:
  • In 2006, more than one-half (54%) of Canadians reported using at least one alternative therapy in the year prior to the survey, which was a 4% increase over the rate of use in 1997.
  • In the 12 months prior to the 2006 survey, the most commonly used complementary and alternative medicines and therapies were massage (19%), prayer (16%), chiropractic care (15%), relaxation techniques (14%), and herbal therapies (10%). Though the top 5 list was the same in 1997, the order was different.
  • Canadians used alternative therapies an average of 8.6 times during the year previous to the 2006 survey, which was similar to their use in 1996 (8.7 times).
  • Most people choosing to use alternative therapies in the 12 months preceding the survey did so to prevent future illness from occurring or to maintain health and vitality.·
