Have you benefited from Integrated Positional Therapy (IPT)?
Does Reiki help you relax and de-stress?
Do you want to protect access to these and other holistic health practices in Massachusetts?
If so, please support S665, the Massachusetts Consumer Access and Right to Practice Complementary and Alternative Health Care Act.
Tuesday is the hearing for this bill before the Public Health Committee. Please email today to show your support. Click the link below for details on the bill & an easy form for emailing committee members. Thanks!
This common sense legislation would:
- Specify prohibited acts (such as puncturing the skin or proscribing medication) and create standards of disclosure across holistic health professions. These standards are sorely lacking in Massachusetts.
- Protect practitioners (like me) of non-invasive complementary and alternate health techniques, provided we operate within the strict guidelines for disclosure and practice. Those who don’t abide by these ethical and practical boundaries would not be protected and could experience penalties.
- Benefit consumers by providing increased protection and disclosure while maintaining full access to the more than 10,000 holistic practitioners currently providing complementary and alternative care in Massachusetts.
