Over and above The official Accreditation, Balancingtouch also 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 certificates 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 and accredited to train you.

Balancingtouch, although already Internationally Accredited, also works with Many of the SETA Bodies as an independent Education Provider. Our modules use only the most relevant South African Unit Standards available  to ensure that you as a Practitioner are operating within the boundaries of the law and the Requirements here, however, our focus is to ensure that you work in alignment with the fully developed 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 refer to themselves as medical experts or fill the place of medical intervention, our practitioners 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.


However, Once Registered through Balancingtouch, The title Internationally Registered Reflexologist and Registered Massage Therapist  can be used, and although no South African NQF points are earned, International CPD and GTI points are given and are registered with the international board.  

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/memberships .
