STA Governance

Currently Sports Therapy, Sports Massage and Sports Rehabilitation are unregulated professions.
There is no lead body or council for Sports Therapy or Sports Rehabilitation.

Sports Massage and other Soft Tissue Therapies has a Lead Council

The Professional Standards Authority; (Oversees the Regulators)

“We help to protect the public through our work with organisations that register and regulate people working in health and social care.”

For the latest on regulation

For details on future regulation

Currently the STA do not see any added value of joining an Accredited Register, in our opinion the registers which accept Sports Massage Practitioners and Sports Therapists are commerically driven, the stated benefits are unsupported by evidence and as a voluntary accessed body have little authority to police the whole industry.
