Further to Darren's comment I would like to draw a distinction between applying knowledge of some fields and applying knowledge of medicinal methods.

If you half know some budo, get into a fight, try to apply what little you learned and still get beaten or whatever, nobody is going to criticise you for trying.
In the medical field the only medical techniques you can apply to someone else in a time of duress is "first aid". To apply any other treatment (even if the patient needs it) you will need to not only have learned it, but you will need to have a recognised license in it.

If these people are practising as therapists in any manner when they are not qualified to do so then they are irresponsible, unethical, and liable. To teach any of what they have learned is just as bad. It is not until you are qualified that you have enough knowledge of a treatments precautions, contra-indications, and possible complications. Even then you will not find a masseur doing surgery. You simply have to know what is within and without your field of expertise - that is what techniques are outside of your qualification when it comes to knowledge of indications, precautions, contra-indications, and complications.

If someone fakes a Bujinkan rank and teaches, he is a dickhead. If someone fakes medical knowledge and treats or teaches someone, he is a danger to society.
