Standards for Holistic Therapy Professionals


It is wonderful to provide Holistic therapy services in a professional setting and that can include a separate space within your own personal residence.  To promote and uphold your own reputation and that of holistic therapy practitioners and our industry you may apply for membership to the British Holistic Therapy Organisation; this organisation is British but all are welcome to join.


Once you have been approved and accepted as a member you will receive your certificate of membership to display on your treatment room wall, to demonstrate your professionalism and dedication to standards of practice.  You will also receive a copy of our logo to use on your business literature and website.
