Practitioners of any modality, have special requirements when it comes to starting and running a Natural Health Business; sourcing information, therapeutic agents, clinic rooms, or spa type of equipment as well as special suited insurance, legal and accounting services, and all has to be within the National Code of "Code of Conduct for unregistered practitioners"
NO doubt, you are aware that Natural Therapies Practitioners are under constant attack. Some of those attacks are of a vexatious complaints nature, others are deliberate misrepresentations by "skeptics" to discredit Natural Therapies in general.
Vexatious complaints are hard to protect yourself against.
However, some of the critic and complaints are certainly valid, and we should learn from that, and adhere to the National Code guidelines to make sure we practice in an ethical manner. (read: Code of Ethics & Conduct)
