With Balancingtouch, the scope of practice and the specific outcomes all fall within Natural Healing and Holistic Medical Practice and extend beyond South African unit standards. Using international standards of practice with unit standards from other countries. Certain countries may require you to do a bridging course or assessment in health and safety with our qualifications to ensure that you are working in conjunction with in their countries Health and Safety legislation.

Students from Balancingtouch and Certified Practitioners that studied through us also do not need to become a member of the Allied Health Council. As it is not Law to be registered with them. Our Students or Certified Practitioners will not be fined, face legal action or be convicted for practising touch therapies.

Balancingtouch qualifications and certification are not governed by the Medical field and are similar to what is attainable through the Allied Health schools but are not the same. We use international Unit standards and are focused on natural and holistic health with the deeper emotional factors that influence health. The students who study through us and have been qualified through us have the legal and International title of Reflexology Practitioner or Remedial Massage Practitioner and are legally allowed to practice what they have learned. 

However, all students from Balancingtouch may not use the title of Therapeutic Reflexologist or Therapeutic Massage Therapist as these Titles belong to and can only be gained through full time studies at Allied health schools and these titles and the people who hold them are controlled and regulated by the Medical Industry.

Balancingtouch advises all therapists out there to always ensure that your certificate from your college or academy holds elements of a unit standard and has some form of accreditation or that the courses are given by an endorsed entity. Beware so called institutions that operate illegally with fabricated accreditations/practitioner organisation .
