Meetings of the Profession Specific Boards (PSBs) for massage therapy, nutritional therapy, aromatherapy, reflexology, shiatsu, yoga therapy, Alexander technique, Bowen, sports and remedial therapy and cranial sacral therapy took place on 23 and 24 February. Wide ranging discussions included:
- A request from Skills for Health to confirm the length of time awarding organisations operating with the qualifications and credit framework should be allowed to continue to offer qualifications based on the old complementary therapy National Occupational Standards (NOS). PSB members agreed with the Board that a timeframe of 2-3 years should be recommended.
