Chapter 2 Section 15 of the Allied Health Professions Act 1982 states that massage therapists must be registered practitioners in South Africa. The council may require proof of training and experience along with other requirements from the practitioners. They will then review the qualifications and determine if the applicants are qualified for the licensing exam.
Section 16A of the same chapter also indicates that training providers must be approved by any relevant board in the country or the council.
