Q1: What are the Principles of Complimentary Therapies? To support a person's health through prevention and treatment, alongside any orthodox treatment required. Q2: What are the Practices of Complimentary Therapies? Don't understand question. Q3: Which Complimentary therapies to you recommend can backup which Orthodox Therapies? Too long to list all but examples would be Qigong or Aromatherapy (agreed with medical practitioners) in recovery/convalescence from cancer treatment, acupuncture for symptoms of type 2 diabetes (alongside orthodox drug or nutritional treatment), Massage alongside orthopaedic/physiotherapy treatments. Q4: Would you use Complimentary Therapies to backup Orthodox Therapies? Yes! Q5: How do you use your Complimentary Therapies? Massage, Aromatherapy (currently for friends/other therapists) and Qigong teaching. Q6: How do you use Complimentary Therapies in comparison to Orthodox Therapies? Mostly as a back-up to orthodox therapies rather than as an alternative. Q7: What are your opinions of Complimentary Therapies and Orthodox Therapies? I think orthodox therapies are often needed and can be life saving whereas complimentary therapies tend to support a more long term solution (but are also very important/beneficial). Q8: How often do you use Complimentary Therapies compared to Orthodox Therapies? For myself, I use Qigong every other day and Aromatherapy regularly, occasionally Reiki too but am only alive due to an orthodox treatment so use that every day too. Q9: Do you recommend Complimentary Therapies? Yes. Q10: what are the values of Complimentary Therapies? As said above, I see them as helping to support a healthy lifestyle and preventing both minor ailments and in some cases more serious illnesses. Q11: What are the values of Orthodox Therapies/ Treatments? As said above, often life saving but not always a sustainable long term solution. Q12: What is the best Treatment you suggest for a Cancer Patient? I think it depends on the patient/client and type of cancer but the best complimentary therapy I know of is Qigong, alongside professional orthodox treatment/monitoring.

Please remember to spell COMPLEMENTARY therapies correctly! Complimentary means a spoken or written expression of praise, complementary means completing, accompanying, making complete, hence accompanying orthodox medicine.

We are most dreadfully sorry Jacqueline! You are right (and if Luke had not spelt it wrongly in his questions I probably wouldn't have in my answers but hey, in the bigger picture .........).
