The NZ Holistic Pulsing Guild values the Registration process. Registration is standard practice for any profession and is one way that professional associations can ensure the members they endorse are involved in their own ongoing self-care, keep up to date with their skills, work within the ethics and standards of the profession, and have a supportive community of practice.
The regular process of registration is valuable and empowering in terms of continuing professional development and peer support. Having registered members supports the NZ Holistic Pulsing Guild, and the profession of Holistic Pulsing, to be a vibrant and evolving professional community.
