We recommend obtaining professional legal advice on this issue in your state before beginning. However, several states, including California, have passed legislation favorable to independent practice by complementary health care practioners.

Where state law does not allow independent practice of wellness consulting by non-licensed practitioners, you may still be able to practice as a wellness educator by affiliating with a licensed practitioner.
