"Professional Standards Authority for Health and Social Care recommends you only choose practitioners who are regulated or on an accredited register."
I am an accredited register practitioner. I am registered with the Alliance who keep the register of Foot Health Practitioners. They set standards for education for entry and continued professional development to protect the public. I have a duty to keep high standards of technical competence and professionalism so the public can have confidence that I will treat them to the highest standards.
LLLT - I am certificated in the use of a class 3B GA/As Omega Laser System. I can treat the lower limb to the knee directly and distally I can treat acupressure points to help relieve pain. I can treat the whole person and I am insured to do so: I can treat the area directly and if needed combine ear (auricular) or body laser acupuncture to influence healing remotely. My training and development in Low Level Laser therapy continues with and through the auspices of Omega Laser Systems Ltd.
I am a member of the Association of Reflexologists (MAR). I am insured through them to provide reflexology and I comply with their Code of Conduct. As a Reflexologist I do not treat illnesses or disease but through foot or hand massage, help the body to bring itself back into balance or harmony. There are many health benefits from this complementary therapy and there is evidence of many positive effects on a number of quality of life indicators. Fertility Reflexology has a proven track record in helping couples who want a baby.
Foot Health Practice
I am a Foot Health Practitioner – I’m not a podiatrist nor a chiropodist. I hold a Diploma in Foot Health Practice - DipCFHP MPSPract . I regularly update my training. My professional body - itself audited and accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA) - is the Alliance of Private Sector Practitioners.
I am committed to high standards. I am listed on a register accredited by the Professional Standards Authority: Accredited Register listed practitioners undertake to work to defined Standards of Behaviour, Technical Competence and Business Principles. I qualified as a Foot Health Practitioner in 2012 and as a Reflexologist in 2016.
My professional body The Alliance of Private Sector Practitioners holds the register that I am registered with. The Alliance audits my compliance with continuing professional development and arranges my professional public indemnity and liability insurance, and by its audit and continual training programme boosts my professional standards to ensure that my services are safely delivered to the public. I comply with their Code of Conduct.
The Professional Standards Authority for Health and Social Care is appointed by Parliament to oversee the work of the Statutory Regulators and accredit health occupation registers - my professional body the Alliance- that meet its standards. The Professional Standards Authority for Health and Social Care regulates and oversees the Alliance of Private Sector Practitioners and the HCPC. The Alliance's register is the only register for Foot Health Practitioners that is accredited, or assured by the Professional Standards Authority for Health & Social Care.
