How can I find a qualified and registered TCM practitioner?
All traditional chinese medicine practitioners of the Association of Traditional Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture UK have completed a thorough training of at least three years in traditional Chinese acupuncture, or Chinese herbal medicine or both and bio medical sciences appropriate to the practice of TCM. They carry the letters MATCM after their name. The ATCM maintains common standards of education, ethics, discipline and practice to ensure the health and safety of the public at all times. Members are covered by Medical Mal-Practice and Public/Products Liability insurance.
The ATCM currently has more than 700 traditional chinese medicine practitioners as members, whose details are published in an annual Register of Practitioner Members. A copy of the full Register can be obtained by sending a cheque for £5.00 to the office, or the ATCM office can post or fax to you a list of your local practitioner members free of charge. Simply telephone, write or e-mail giving your name and address (including full postcode).
