Australian Acupuncture & Chinese Medicine Association Ltd

The Australian Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine Association Ltd (AACMA) is the peak professional body of qualified acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine practitioners in Australia. AACMA has represented the profession since 1973 and values high standards in ethical and professional practice.

More than 2200 acupuncturists and Chinese medicine practitioners are members of AACMA. High standards of education and practice are maintained by AACMA-accredited practitioners due to the profession's determination to provide excellence in acupuncture and TCM health care.

The Chinese medicine profession joined the National Registration and Accreditation Scheme for the Health Professions on 1 July 2012. This is the same scheme that regulates medical practitioners, physiotherapists, chiropractors, dentists, nurses and midwives etc. Chinese medicine practitioners must now be registered with the Chinese Medicine Board of Australia (CMBA) in order to offer acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine services to the public.

To find a registered acupuncturist or Chinese herbal medicine practitioner, use our Practitioner Search.
