Unlicensed Provider (SB 577)

We represent non-licensed practitioners of the healing arts, including individuals practicing:

  • Aromatherapy
  • Ayurvedic Medicine
  • Energy Healing
  • Homeopathy
  • Naturopathy (in some states)
  • Nutrition and Nutritional Counseling
  • Reiki
  • Spiritual Counseling

We also counsel clients on related practices, such as those involving:

  • Functional Medicine
  • HCG for Weight Loss
  • Live Blood Cell Analysis
  • Emerging Therapies

Some states provide leeway for non-licensed practitioners under a state “medical freedom” act. For example, California has “SB 577,” which has now been incorporated into the Business & Professions Code. Other states have stricter laws, leaving non-licensed practitioners vulnerable to investigation and discipline by professional regulatory boards, including:

  • Board of Nutrition & Dietetics
  • Board of Medicine
  • Board of Psychology

We advise clients both pro-actively, to help structure their practices, and represent clients under investigation by Boards.
