IPTI was founded in 1982 and we have been looking after the needs of our members since that time, the variety of therapists we can accept for membership has evolved over the last 35 years and now exceeds 400 different treatments/therapies.
BENEFITS OF IPTI ASSOCIATION MEMBERSHIP
The scope for treatments continually widens, higher standards are demanded and responsibilities increase, but the voice of the therapist remains unheard, a victim of divided loyalties.
Increasing technology and the trend towards ancient and oriental therapies, allied to commercial pressures, create problems of control, training and education that only the professional organisations have the resources to meet.
IPTI recognises the importance of a professional associations to bring strength and purpose to the qualified therapist and to provide a sense of belonging to a profession whose importance is being increasingly recognised.
