What The Bill Does
Currently holistic practitioners (Reiki, qigong, Ayurveda, polarity, Yoga, homeopathy, energy healers, herbalists and more) may be construed as practicing medicine without a license. They are at risk for fines, penalties and censure.
The new law would protect holistic practitioners by providing a sensible state exemption for non-invasive complementary and alternative health care practitioners who avoid a specific list of prohibited acts — such as puncturing the skin or administering prescription drugs — provided they give out standard disclosure information to their clients — including contact information, education and training, and the nature of the services to be rendered — before delivering services.
If passed, Massachusetts would join ten other states in protecting the thousands of complementary and alternative practitioners who are practicing within their borders, and joins Maine, Wisconsin and Iowa currently attempting to pass similar laws in their states.
