About the Association

The British Columbia Association of Traditional Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture Practitioners (ATCMA) is the intersection of Western and Eastern medicine and philosophy. The ATCMA supports and represents TCM and Acupuncture practitioners, guides patients, and promotes education to foster healthy communities and a vibrant profession.

Our highly trained licensed members set the gold standard for acupuncture and herbal medicine: ATCMA practitioners are the acupuncture professionals of BC and we want everyone to know why. The ATCMA embraces integrated care opportunities with the conviction that it takes a village of professionals to support patients and their families, so we are working with Government, expanding public, peer and professional education, and promoting insurance coverage for our members and patients.

By eliminating barriers to acupuncture and TCM herbal therapies, the ATCMA’s vision is to ensure every British Columbian has access to the many benefits comprehensive TCM therapies have to offer, making BC the healthiest place to live.
