Becoming registered is not a legal obligation for now. South Africa does not have a regulatory board of natural touch therapy. There are associations in SA (Not Governing Bodies/Regulators). These Associations do not work according to world standards and are not within the scope of the international practices of natural, preventative touch medicine. Many of these Associations are completely governed by the medical and pharmaceutical boards are severely restricted, even though massage therapy is not in the same scope of conventional western medical studies. Registering with an Association is not an Accreditation, it does not put you on a board of special therapists. It puts you on a list at that Association and binds you contractually to work how they see fit. You are note legally obligated to register and get a medical /membership practice number in SA, because massage therapy and natural healing is not a medical based/pharmaceutical ruled industry - all this means is that medical aids cannot be used (In SA).
