Australian Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine Association Ltd

The Australian Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine Association Ltd (AACMA) is the leading national professional association of acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) practitioners.

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. AACMA members are bound to a high standard of ethical and professional conduct through adherence to our national practitioner accreditation standards, Code of Ethics and Standards of Practice.

All AACMA practitioner members are accredited with the Australian Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioner Accreditation Board, established by AACMA in 2003 with the support of the Commonwealth Complementary Therapies Funding Program.

The Chinese medicine profession (acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine practitioners) has been approved for inclusion in the National Registration and Accreditation Scheme for the Health Professions from 1 July 2012.

Mission Statement

  • To be the peak body representing the profession in Australia and be recognised as such by all sectors of government, industry, the profession, and the public.
  • To promote the Association and its accredited practitioners such that the Association is readily recognised by all facets of the community, government and the health industry as being synonymous with excellence and professionalism in the practice of TCM.
  • To develop and administer policies and standards, implement programs and provide a cost effective infrastructure to support and assist accredited practitioners to succeed as primary care practitioners in the Australian health care system.
  • To set minimum standards of education and training and assist education providers so as to ensure that education remains relevant to the needs and requirements of the association, its members, and the public.
