Imagine this scenario: What would happen if the state came knocking at your door tomorrow, and served you a cease-and-desist order — or worse, an arrest warrant — just for providing holistic services?
Would you have a defendable legal basis to stand on?
If not, you and your business are at serious risk of being shut down, in addition to costly fines and legal fees. And in some states, maybe even the threat of jail time. 😯
In fact, it's exactly what happened to Heather and her holistic health coaching business. She went to court to prove her case, but ultimately had no legal basis to defend her services and lost her business.
And we see the same thing happening to Donna in Mississippi this year. She is threatened with large fines and potential jail time for providing dietary advice without a license.
Heather and Donna are just two of many. In our more than 20+ years of experience, we have seen legal action taken against many, many holistic practitioners by the state.
The PWA supports holistic practitioners and helps provide a solid, defendable legal basis for you to protect your business and livelihood.

In our 20+ years of experience, we have seen legal action taken against many, many holistic practitioners by the state.
For example, a state board official may come to your business posing as a client to gather evidence against you. Other times, they may just call and inquire about your services to gather what they need.
Before you know it, you have a cease-and-desist order to shut down your business, with no legal basis to defend yourself.
We offer various pricing options for PWA licensure. Choose a monthly or annual payment plan that fits your needs.
