Your Guide to Using the iCAMhub

How to Register

Registration is an easy process. In addition, it is free for the set-up period for therapists, and free forever for patients and other users. If a user or therapist does not wish to continue at any time, or they do not believe that they are benefitting from having a profile on the iCAMhub, they can have their profile taken off at any time.

The iCAMhub is specifically designed to meet the needs of both therapists and patients.

Registration for Patients/Users

Users simply need to fill in a short registration form to create a profile and they will be able to rate therapists, advertise events, chat with other users, and use all of the other facilities on the iCAMhub.

Just look at the top right corner of the homepage, click “Register->user” and fill in the profile box (username, name, email and password), click “Finish” and your registration is complete. It only takes a minute.

Registration for Therapists

Therapists can quickly create a profile by clicking “Register->therapist” on the top right corner of the homepage. Creating a profile will include a therapist on our search database for patients to find. Therapists are able to provide details about themselves, their qualifications, and other information for users to read. Users will also be able to leave feedback on, and rate registered therapists, but also gives the therapist the opportunity to respond and leave comments on their reviews, helping them to engage with patients.

Much of complementary healthcare relies on word and mouth and personal recommendations. Therapists on the iCAMhub will have exposure to a wide number of users seeking advice on a range of common ailments, and patients will be able to hear first-hand about therapists from other users.

The iCAMhub is an environment in which both patients and therapists benefit.

Information is the most valuable resource for patients in deciding what treatment option to take. Reviews are not accepted from users where any incentive has been offered by the therapist. At the same time, libellous or fake reviews that are reported are removed from the site. The independence and accuracy of the comments and reviews are crucial to the success and integrity of the iCAMhub. In addition, therapists who create a profile which is not sufficiently complete to verify their authenticity, or whose affiliation to an organisation which is recognised by IHP is not known, may be removed without notice to protect the integrity and high standards of the iCAMhub.

The iCAMhub is the best resource available for therapists and patients of integrated, complementary and natural healthcare.

How to leave feedback on a therapist

Log into your account, or register and create an account as outlined above.

Enter the name of the therapist you want to leave feedback on in the “Find a Therapist” section on the homepage, or click on the therapist’s name if they are a “Featured Therapist”.

When the therapist’s profile is displayed, scroll down to the bottom where you are able to leave comments and a review.

Registered therapists can only leave comments on other therapists. Users can leave full reviews.

How do you use the Find a Therapist search section in the hub?

Patients/Users

Patients/users may search for a therapist without registering on the iCAMhub.

There are 4 options.

– Insert the name of the therapist you are looking for in the search box.
– Insert the type of therapist you are looking for.
– Insert the condition which you would like advice on.
– Insert the condition and type of therapist you wish to consult.

Remember to insert your postcode, decide whether you want your results to be displayed by distance from your location or rating of the therapist, and click search.

Users cannot leave reviews and feedback as an unregistered user.

Users should not seek advice from therapists on this site in place of essential medical treatment for conditions which should be carried out under the supervision of a suitably qualified healthcare professional.
