What training qualifications and experience should therapists have?
In the UK there is no overall governing body to provide national standards for acupressure treatment. However, there are a number of professional bodies and associations in which professionals can choose to register with. Although there is no specific acupressure association, it is recognised under acupuncture guidelines, which entail a strict code of ethics and practice.
In order to become a member of a professional body, acupressure practitioners will need several years of training and experience behind them. Specific requirements will vary from association to association. Ultimately, their professional membership will ensure a degree of reliability and safety in the eyes of those seeking treatment.
All acupressure practitioners listed on Therapy Directory have the relevant qualifications and insurance or are members of a voluntary regulator.
