New! Series two of the International Therapist podcast launches 

We launched the International Therapist podcast this Spring so that our professional complementary, beauty and sports therapists can gain inspiration from others in the industry. 

In the first series on the FHT Virtual Congress, we spoke to expert seminar hosts at the FHT Virtual Congress about their careers, journeys and goals for the future.  

Series two – Celebrating Excellence

Here at the FHT, a huge highlight of our year is celebrating our member’s hard work and dedication through the FHT Excellence Awards. There have been some truly amazing accomplishments and we thought what better way to share these far and wide than to invite some of our winners to feature as guests on our podcast? Keep reading for a sneak peek at what to expect from series two…
