EPASA

Welcome to EPASA

What is EPASA?

EPASA stands for Ethnomedicine Practitioners Association of South Africa and is a body which accredits and controls the ethnomedical practice under the Traditional Health Practitioners Act.

EPASA was established in 1987, to promote, enhance and unify the practise of ethnomedicine in South Africa.

Why you should consult with an  EPASA Practitioner!

EPASA Practitioners completed intense training to provide personal assistance relating to your overall wellbeing. EthnoMedicine Practitioners focus on herbal products and remedies for various ailments and conditions. EthnoPsychology Practitioners focus on psychological and spiritual wellbeing. People often choose these alternative methods for wellbeing as a natural resolution with great success. Our Practitioners provide such a natural alternative and are regulated to function within a specific code of conduct. If a condition exceeds the expertise of our Practitioners where medical or psychiatrical assistance is needed, a client will be recommended to a related medical specialist.

To find a practitioner, head over to the “Find a Practitioner” section to search for a practitioner in your area. Practitioners may specialise in specific areas, it is therefore advised to find out what Practitioners specialise in by viewing their Profile Pages. If you are not sure you can ask for recommendations on our Facebook Page.
