I have always even the therapy as a preventative treatment. It can be part of a cure for certain conditions. For the recipient I think that it would be a great step forward to incorporate the treatments as part of the NHS service. Only there would need to be strict rules as to when to treat and contraindicated. I often experience the response from some of my clients to my refusing treatment due to contraindications, which is that another therapist treated them without consultation or screening so why am I contraindicatiingthem now? After careful consideration I either treat or turn my clients away. There needs to be a tighter rein on the profession and by introducing the therapy into the NHS perhaps some therapists will conduct their practice in a stricter format.

Yes, I think its really important that we act professionally. I also think that the emergence of frighteningly short courses that lets people believe they can be a therapist in 3 months and sometimes less should not be banned. They don't do the industry any good
