The Natural Health Practitioners of New Zealand is a leading professional Natural Healthcare Practitioner Register in New Zealand.

We ensure our practitioners have the highest qualifications obtainable in their chosen field of expertise to meet the healthcare needs of your entire family. Unlike conventional (allopathic medicine) our individual practitioners utilise the natural holistic (whole body) approach to healthcare with an emphasis on treating the whole person. Our practitioners provide a full range of natural healthcare therapies to assist with many health conditions.

The Natural Health Practitioners of New Zealand Incorporated (formally known as The New Zealand Charter of Health Practitioners Incorporated) was formed in 1993 as a non profit incorporated society with the New Zealand Incorporated Societies Act 1908. NHPNZ is a non profit organisation established to facilitate and defend the practitioners’ right to practice freely in their chosen health field and the consumers’ right to freely access healthcare of their own choice.

We fully support the individual’s basic human right to make their own educated decisions and their own freedom of choice from all available science, treatments and therapies in order to maintain or re-establish a desirable level of health and well-being.
