Do you practice in one of the following Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM) sectors?
Be part of the only Vetted Multidisciplinary Directory of Holistic Practitioners in the United Kingdom.
We started the Holistic List to offer a simple to use resource for practitioners who wanted to advertise their businesses and take advantage of online payments and bookings.
Outdated paper and online directories do not offer this service, and certainly do not vet practitioners and service users to the same level that we do.
We focus on holistic businesses specialising in complementary and alternative practices, courses, retreats and spas.
Our aim is to be the most trusted resource by local government and the NHS (Social Prescribing and GP’s) who could recommend the register to their service users for holistic health treatments.
We are unique as we identity check all Service Users, so we know who they are, to ensure a safe environment for all practitioners.
Vetted is the only way to join the register
We will only list practitioners and businesses who have passed our vetting criteria. They will need to prove their identity, qualifications, length of practice, insurance and affiliations. Our vetting criteria is based on Professional Standards Authority, local government and GP guidelines. If you are approved, you will be part of an elite set of practitioners.
We feel this much needed resource will level the playing field. All practitioners need to have a minimum time in practice, which means no more having to compete with practitioners who have only completed the bare minimum to get qualified.
Key benefits of joining the Holistic List
Starting a business is hard enough without thinking about your online profile, website and payments, let alone bookings and service user management. We ease some of the admin of running your practice, for example: bookings and payment management, online profile and marketing. Your profile page is like a mini website; you can direct your service users there from any social media accounts to take bookings, view current offers, availability and prices. All this without any need for any technical know how.
All bookings are handled via the online portal and you can view them directly on your mobile and synced to your Google calendar. You have total control over your availability and you can change these settings at any time, for example when you are going to be on holiday.
What’s great is you won’t need to invest in an expensive website, booking platform, payment gateway, social and directory listing, which would typically cost more than £1500 per year. We offer all this for a fraction of the cost. You can view all past appointments and any related notes, so that your services users receive the best treatment possible.
When you join the Holistic List, you will be offered a great discount on market leading insurance from our partner, PolicyBee, who understand the holistic health industry and will offer you the best insurance for your needs.

Service User Benefits:
Service users will be able to find your practice easily with our easy to use search functionality.
They can browse your services, read reviews and check prices and availability, all without having to call you, and they can do that 24 hours a day.
They can book, pay and reschedule appointments with ease via the self-service function, making it easier to manage their appointments anytime. These are all done with the rules you set up. Appointments are synced with their Google calendars, reducing no shows.
With the notes system service users will be able to view any aftercare and advice that you have shared, allowing them to take a more proactive approach to their health. This offers a more personalised approach and will increase customer retention and loyalty.
Service users will have a record of all their appointments (not just with your practice) which will give them a joined up view of their health plan and give you a better overview on how to formulate the best treatment plan for them.
