I often find myself as a Holistic Health Practitioner, having to tell clients that I am not a “Therapist”, and that I don’t offer “treatments”. It shouldn’t really matter, right? A rose by any other name still smells as sweet…however, it does matter – and the reason is that I can be accused of practising MEDICINE without a license.
What? But medicine doesn’t even enter into what I do!
In terms of the Medical Scope of Practice Act, the word “therapy” may be seen to imply that that a diagnosis has been made and that a treatment is being given for that specifically diagnosed ailment. That is why a “therapeutic massage therapist”, for example, is required to be registered with the Allied Health Professions Council of SA. In fact, anyone offering anything of a “therapeutic” nature is required to be registered.
Another interesting section to the Act, is the implication that recommending ANYTHING can be seen as “prescribing” – another thing that only registered Medical professionals may do. Even if what you are “prescribing” is not medicine – in terms of the Act, it is still illegal.
Do yourself a favour and get to grips with the terminology – it may save your practice in the future as regulations toughen up regarding these issues. i’d really like to hear your thoughts on this – please comment below, or send me an e-mail.
