London Borough Special Exemption Status for CNHC registrants

If you are a CNHC registered practitioner living in London, you may be required to obtain a license to practise. According to the London Local Authorities Act 1991, the following treatments on CNHC’s Accredited Register may need to be licensed:
  • Aromatherapy
  • Bowen Technique
  • Massage Therapy
  • Microsystems Acupuncture
  • Reflexology
  • Reiki
  • Shiatsu
The London Special Treatments Group banded together to compile a list of organisations that qualify for exemption under Section 4 of the London Local Authorities Act 1991, of which CNHC and several of our Verifying Organisations are listed. The majority of London Boroughs accept this list, however some do not.              
We have compiled information from each Council to supply you with the latest information available on their websites along with their contact information. Each Council has different fee structures and requirements depending on the treatment you provide, so do check the latest information.

Should you want further information or an update on the special treatment license exemption list, please contact your appropriate London Borough directly.
