hi, new member here, I have a friend who is Russian and has trained in massage therapy in her own country. It is termed "medical massage" and she would welcome any advice or information with regard to her status in the Uk in terms of her qualifications:insurance etc ,should she wish to practice, either voluntarily or for an income. I havnt had much chance to speak to her at any length due to our study commitments at present, but i have advised her to contact bodies such as the fht or local f.e. colleges as to status and accredited prior learning etc. If by chance we have a Russian practitioner with us ,please reply!! thanks a lot!
