Benefits of PMA Licensing

Unconditionally Committed to Your Success

PMA is one-pointedly focused on –

  • Protecting and advancing your rights to practice Pastoral Science & Medicine;
  • Helping you deliver effective Pastoral Science & Medicine protocols to achieve better health outcomes for your clients at lower costs; and
  • Providing you state-of-the-art education, resources and tools to expand your practice and increase your revenue.

A Distinctly Unique and Credible Professional Opportunity

Pastoral Science & Medicine is very similar to the conventional practice of Natural Medicine or “natural health and wellness”. Importantly, these services are in very high public demand.

For both state-licensed and non-licensed providers, the PMA license provides a legal path for qualified health practitioners to offer Pastoral Science & Medicine services to clients seeking natural means for addressing illness and maintaining vital health, while benefiting financially through meeting the high demand for these services.

Importantly, the PMA license builds your professional credibility and instills trust in the client that he or she is partnering with a practitioner who has a high level of concern for the client’s well-being and who supports freedom of choice in healthcare decisions.

For the state-licensed medical provider, the PMA license provides a distinctly separate professional opportunity to offer natural health services to clients, which may not be authorized within the scope of the state license.
