Why aren’t we regulated?

  • Regulation in the UK is on a spectrum based on perceived risk. Statutory regulation is not the badge of honour it once was and is largely reserved for professions regarded as high risk. At the other end of the spectrum is voluntary and self regulation for low risk professions such as our own. The Professional Standards Authority described UK regulation as ‘not fit for purpose ‘...and we agree. There is a compelling need for a form of regulation for the Soft Tissue Therapies industry beyond that currently offered. We are actively looking at licensing models that operate in other countries.
