I have a BTEC Level 5 Professional Diploma in Soft Tissue Therapy which allows me to be a member of the Institute for Soft Tissue Therapists (ISRM) which gives formal recognition and representation to therapists who employ a range of assessment and remedial techniques to effectively treat a variety of soft tissue conditions. As a member of the ISRM, I update my skills annually through continuing professional development (CPD).
I am also registered with the Complementary & Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC) – the UK regulator for appropriately qualified and insured complementary healthcare practitioners. The Department of Health recommends that GPs and patients/public use the CNHC register to access practitioners. As a member of the CNHC I have met national occupational standards and abide by a rigorous code of conduct.
My professional indemnity insurance with H & L Balens covers the scope of practice for Soft Tissue Therapy.
