I agree that it is important to find out and suggest that if you have no joy within this arena you speak to either the british embasy/ consulate in london. That would actually be my first point of contact.

I also agree that it is very important to source this information. The Diploma I have is recognised in Europe but not worldwide and I would imagine that regulation is determined by each Country. You could maybe try the Federation of Holistic Therapists. Good Luck Moyra

I agree with the responses you have recieved already. I would add a suggestion of making a check list that covers education, employment, registration, insurance, culture, taxation, residential and employment permits, visa, innoculations, clinical practice ect.

Good luck with your enquiries

Different areas regulate their qualifications differently but there are two different tests in CO that you have to pass along with several hours of training. Since I have my degree I was able to bypass these regulations but my best advice would be to go to your area's government registration office and ask them what they require for you to practice in Jordan.

The reason for asking is my family and I was thinking of moving to Jordan and if so I'd really like to work. I live in the US and here each state has different qualifications to practice. There are two national certifications, but not all states recognize them. I live and practice in Ohio whom are very strict when it comes to MASSAGE. The only way to practice is to obtain an extended field of medicene licensure from the State Medical Board. First you must complete the curriculum (school should be approved by medical board) then pass a 2 part exam. Anatomy & Physiology and Massage.
As far as I know...... ohio is the only state governed by a medical board.

I relish a challenge so had a go on doing a bit of detective work. I found this article on an Ex pat website from a massage therapist based in Amman educated in the USA. Perhaps if you e-mailed them they may be able to fill you in with more info.

Hope this helps.

Best regards

In many European countries anyone with short course work can call themselves massage therapist. It is not protected. I would be careful who you deal with. There is a woman from Europe in Wadi Musa who calls herself massage therapist and she "sells" bedouin massage (calling it Kasaath Hawa, where in fact it is the dry cupping version of Al Hijama) to beauticians in Europe. She trains and certifies them, whereas she herself is not qualified. And she asks JD 3100 for a 15 day course, training 9 massages. A total rip off.
