Join our community of professionals and find the support you need to have a thriving and successful practice that also protects the integrity of your profession.
Did you know that in Spain and Germany, there is no service mark protection? There, anyone can take a few classes and call themselves a Feldenkrais practitioner, creating confusion and difficulty for Practitioners who have graduated from accredited training programs, and for the public.
FGNA protects members by actively protecting the use of service marks.
FGNA monitors relevant legislation for you. In states that have tried to limit practitioners via massage and physical therapy licensure requirements. FGNA has fought and won in over 25 states to protect practitioners’ right to practice. Your membership dues go to pay for research, legal fees and more so that you can continue to be exempt from over-reaching massage laws.
If you practice, you need insurance. FGNA can provide Members with professional liability insurance through HPSO for a reasonable cost.
