Petition update

UPDATE: Protect the Right to Practice, Teach and Access Alternative Healing Therapies in MA

MA Coalition of Holistic Healthcare Practitioners

Aug 2, 2021 — 

Both bills S.221 & H.350, An Act Regulating Alternative Healing Therapies (formerly S.168) are still with the Joint Committee on Consumer Protection and Professional Licensure.  

It is imperative to contact members of the Joint Committee to express your opposition. Their names are listed on the webpage above.

We are waiting for a date for the public hearing. They have been scheduling hearings on Mondays and Thursdays with only 48 hours notice. The public hearings are remote. They are supposedly on summer recess for the month of August.  However, they do have a hearing scheduled for August 2.

Once the date is announced for the public hearing, there will be information posted on the Joint Committee on Consumer Protection and Professional Licensure webpage on how to send in testimony or testify. I suggest you draft your testimony now so you will have it ready to send in.

Check out Reiki Unified for current information regarding the bills and many downloadable free resources to assist in opposing it.  Please see their website at

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Thank you for your support.  It is greatly appreciated!
