Body Stress Release Association South Africa

The South African Body Stress Release Association was formed in 1988. The Association controls the mode of practice of practitioners, and is governed by its constitution, a legal document by which all practitioners are bound. The purpose of the constitution is to maintain high professional standards of practice which ensure public safety. It provides a code of ethics, a framework to keep practitioners functioning within the scope of practice and disciplinary powers to deal with misconduct. 

The Association holds an annual three day educational conference which includes the annual general meeting and the election of the members of the executive committee. In addition workshops and seminars are arranged three times a year in the various regions, as the constitution requires that practitioners attend a minimum of five hours of continuing education. This covers technique review and research findings, and provides an opportunity for practitioners to share ideas. 

Graduates of the BSR Academy receive a registration number from the Board of Trustees which confers membership of the association in the country in which they are resident.

The Association newsletter is published three times a year and provides a forum for practitioners to exchange information and views.

The Association is a member of COCHASA, the Confederation of Complementary Health Associations of South Africa.

There are Body Stress Release practitioners in England, Scotland, Holland, Iceland, Canada, the USA, New Zealand and Australia.
