Listed below are the professional bodies for some of the different complementary and alternative medicine disciplines in the UK, under the proviso that not all may have active professional bodies.
A professional body exists to support the profession and the individual in practice, advise on best practice, to develop the profession and where relevant perform trade union activities. It relies on its members for funding so therefore must be active in providing a service for them. Please note that if the professional body is, or, is not listed this is not indicative of any endorsement by the RCCM.
The RCCM has links with many professional bodies to help maintain a link between traditional and complementary and alternative medicine.
Some of the bodies below also provide courses which the RCCM itself does not accredit.
