The Complementary & Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC)
CNHC is the UK voluntary regulator for complementary healthcare practitioners that was set up with government support to protect the public by providing a UK voluntary register of complementary therapists. CNHC's register has been approved as an Accredited Register by the Professional Standards Authority for Health and Social Care. This means CNHC has met the Professional Standard Authority's demanding standards. All CNHC registered practitioners are entitled to use CNHC’s quality mark which demonstrates a commitment to professionalism and high standards. The public and those who commission the services of complementary healthcare practitioners can choose with confidence, by looking for the CNHC quality mark.
CNHC has agreed that the Association of Biodynamic Massage Therapists may verify applications for CNHC registration. Since 2021 a level 4 massage qualification is required alongside the Biodynamic Massage Certificate.
We encourage members to register in order to gain the CNHC quality mark. Members wishing to so need to complete the CNHC request to register form that can be found
here or download the one on the right.
