Prospective students must be over 25 years of age, with a matriculation certificate (Grade 12) or equivalent (A level in UK, HBO in the Netherlands, or equivalent). As BSR practitioners deal with people from all walks of life, in varying states of health, both physical and emotional, applicants need to have the confidence and empathy to relate effectively to people from all walks of life. It is important that applicants also feel they have the drive and ambition that are essential elements for setting up and running their own business.
Practitioners are also expected to be active, willing and committed members of their local BSR Association, ultimately helping to promote the growth of Body Stress Release. It is of course essential that all prospective students experience the benefits of BSR before applying to do the course so we recommend visiting a practitioner for a number of sessions first.
