spa industry world wide.
Balancingtouch is a professional and reputable training institution that is an independent training provider of the highest quality Natural and Holistic treatments. All the workshops, courses and training programs hold elements of Higher International NVQs and international codes From leading Authorities with certain SAQA unit standards and all certificates indicate the unit standard identification number where these elements are sourced that make it valid and relevant to build the working skills needed in the industry at large.
Balancingtouch makes use of national and international frameworks and unit standards that are required by international bodies to practice massage. When you have done a course or a group of courses through us, your certificate will state the international and national codes that make up your knowledge and skills. These codes act as proof to anyone, that you have been trained to the highest international standards by an institute that has been legally endorsed to train you.
Balancingtouch has recently registered to become accredited by the International Education board of City and Guilds to facilitate , assess and qualify you in even more courses that what you could find in South Africa.
Balancingtouch also falls under Many of the SETA Bodies as an independent Education Provider. Our modules use the relevant South African and mainly International Unit Standards to ensure that you as a Practitioner are operating within the boundaries of the law and the Requirements of the International industry at large. 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 and the standard NQF Levels. Using international standards of practice with unit standards from other countries, ensures that you are working beyond 3rd world standards. 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, do not offer Practice numbers or are limited to South African NQF Levels. Although Our International Courses are similar to what is attainable through the Allied Health schools, they are not the same. We use international Unit standards that are not yet developed in South Africa and are focused on Service Quality in 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 .
