The Canadian Association for Colon Therapists (C-ACT)
was incorporated in Ontario as a not-for-profit organization in 2014.
We are a group of therapists committed to the health and well-being of all people. We are passionate about working together to seek the support of a Regulatory Board to improve this industry and implement Canada-wide standards. Regulation protects our integrity and will help us grow our industry and be recognized as a legitimate, alternative health resource.
We encourage therapists to join this effort for a collective benefit.
We are not a watch-dog organization.
What does Regulation do for us? As an example, during the past 2 years battling this Pandemic, our businesses were not allowed to operate. In the first stage of re-opening, Massage Therapists (RMT’s) were allowed to re-open under the guidance of their Regulatory Board.
The Health Department lists us as “Personal Services” along with tattoo parlors, esthetics, hair and nail salons – not as an accredited, alternative health service.
Colon Therapists were non-existent during the lockdown as we have no Regulatory Board to lobby for us. No “business category”, no Regulatory Board, no support.
Canadian Association for Colon Therapy - established to:
- Set and promote standards for ethical practice, and professionalism among members.
- Improve qualifications for individual members.
- Share information for the mutual benefit of the members.
- Promote uniformity in the industry.
- Provide working guidelines for therapists.
- Protect the character and status of the profession.
- Unite members of the colon hydrotherapy profession.
We have drafted guidelines to ensure the safety of therapists and clients. Follow these guidelines and standards, so we present as a united group of therapists lobbying for change. More details on this will follow soon.
Your feedback is valuable to us and always welcome!
