In conjunction with concerned beauty industry stakeholders, Professional Beauty is to launch an online petition to raise awareness around the threat posed by the Allied Health Professionals Council of South Africa (AHPCSA), which wants to make ‘non-therapeutic’ massage, aromatherapy and reflexology part of its register. The AHPCSA has already made representation to the Minister of Health on this issue. Should the AHPCSA succeed in its goal, then no beauty therapist will be able to perform massage, aromatherapy and reflexology services unless they are registered with the AHPCSA, and they would only be able to perform these services in registered practices, as opposed to salons or spas. Speaking at the Professional Beauty Network Breakfast held on 25 April at Moyo Zoo Lake in Johannesburg, Professional Beauty’s commercial director, Phil Woods, urged the beauty industry as a whole to make a stand and present a united front to the Minister of Health to counter the AHPCSA threat. “This is an extremely serious issue,” continued Woods. “If the AHPCSA is successful in its mission, it will have a hugely detrimental effect on the industry. “We need to get the word out to the wider industry. “In addition, spas and salons need to make their clients aware of the issue and get them to sign the petition. It’s vital that we show the Minister that we need to regulate our own industry.” Professional Beauty will inform the industry of the launch of the online petition and awareness campaign in the near future.
