About Us

The Complementary Health Seminars Story – a brief insight…

The CHS business model was developed by David Sheehan, who was a practising manual therapist and had personally experienced the lack of educational offerings from experienced facilitators in the continuing education industry.

After 2 years of operating his own corporate massage business, David conceptualised the CHS business model with the objective of providing Professional Education products and services to the manual therapist.

During this initial start-up period, David utilised his skills-base and management experience developed through 12 years of growing a small business in the tourism industry to an annual turnover of 3.5 million.

David recognised that Continuing Education for manual therapists in Australia was:

• growing rapidly
• immature in its product offerings (cottage industry)
• extremely fragmented

It is now CHS’s overall business objective to be the leader in delivering its products and services to the massage industry.

Mission Statement

To provide therapists with an opportunity to build on their base skills learned through formal education giving the therapist a greater sense of purpose which in turn benefits the industry by raising standards and profile of massage in the community.
