We want to publicize all the values of our knowledge and experience that we believe are relevant to our society.
Our therapeutic and human capabilities, our point of view regarding health, our philosophy of life, our philosophy of ecology… respect the maximum of natural therapy, which is nature's own body to recover, or the therapist is a companion on the road to regaining health.
We have a total imbrication in social health. We have much to say about health, not just people, but also to management and other health professionals.

- Requesting modification of the tax system and tax code.
- Fostering regulation of natural therapies that have not been contemplated in the first phase.
- Ensuring the integrity of the profession as to discredit that other groups can make to our business and professional skills.
