Here at The CMA we like to think of this wonderful organisation as a ‘family’ as – over the years – that is what it has become. In fact, we have many Members who have been with us since our beginning – back in 1993!  So, when we welcome a new Member in any category into The CMA, we are hoping that you’ll be with us for many years – and for that to happen, we realise that we have to offer you the very best service imaginable. We are dedicated to representing complementary medicine and natural healthcare world-wide, at the very highest levels of government – ensuring that our collective voices are heard when it comes to policy-making and decisions that impact the health of our nations – and our rights to practice or teach.  

You’ll find that we are always the first port of call for newspapers, magazines, television, radio, and online broadcasters when they need a sensible, balanced, and evidence-based response to the latest health matter. We welcome your contributions too – we see ourselves as a platform to help you get your message out to the masses. So, please do get involved in all our promotional opportunities – of which we have many!  

We’d love to see you getting active on our Facebook page and Members group, being interviewed on our YouTube Channel, providing articles for our superb weekly e-Newsletter, and of course for this website.  

Note; we also have a vibrant practice growth Facebook group, and we thoroughly encourage to you get involved in this too – obviously, it is designed for practitioners – but all the information we share is equally applicable to everyone working in the field – so if you are running a school or other organisation, join in anyway!

One final word...

Why The CMA has been so outstandingly successful over all these years

First of all, The CMA is renowned for having the very highest Membership standards of all multi-disciplinary organisations. We demand higher qualifications than many other groups, and your fees go directly towards supporting complementary medicine – promoting and protecting the profession AND ensuring that the public (and doctors and other medical staff) have access to the very best practitioners and training schools. 

My colleagues and I are ALL involved in complementary medicine in one way or another. Most of us are experienced practitioners (some have a nursing or medical background too), so when you speak to any of us, you’ll know that we are speaking the same language as you – we fully understand what it means to be in practice – or to run a training school. We are real people, and you can actually talk to us on the telephone! Pretty rare these days!

We are very proud to have each and every one of our Members on board with us. We do not take your Membership and support for granted and we appreciate that we have a duty to serve you to the very best of our abilities.  We are honoured to have you join us and we look forward to supporting you over the coming years as your complementary medical career blossoms.

Warmest wishes from the entire CMA Team and me!

a word from our members...
We have received invaluable support as a small organic brand from CMA. Our brand promotes healthy living through our organic plant based product and being part of this renowned world class organisation has been vital for our growth. We look forward to networking, collaborating and continuing to grow with the support of the CMA and our membership. We would highly recommend professionals and brands aligned to complementary medicine and healthy living to join the CMA.

As a Fellow of the Complementary Medical Organisation, I am continually impressed with their quality of service and customer care. I have never encountered such a high level of passion and dedication to nurturing, guiding and educating their members. The CMA is a world class organisation which expertly represents evidence based research and clinical practice of the highest standard in the field of natural and complementary medicine. The CMA Advanced Certified Professional courses are superb. I am looking forward to embarking on the Integrative Oncology course shortly. I am very proud to be a member of such a visionary organisation. Highly recommended! ⭐️ ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐

I just wanted to say a big thank you to the amazing team at the CMA. These business development assets are absolutely brilliant and will really enhance the package that we offer our students. Many thanks again and warm wishes to all

There are so many organisations representing complementary health therapies and therapists, but how many have the integrity of the CMA ? Remember lockdown ? CMA spoke out in favour of therapists being able to work and in fact changed the law to protect those within the industry and just as importantly those who depend on regular sessions that help keep them well on so many levels. A great organisation driven by the desire to keep the industry professional, conscientious and effective by keeping standards high. When you see their logo attached to a website or course, you are looking at one of the best-established flagships representing natural health therapies in the UK.

The steadfastness and professional standing of the CMA has been a wonderful support to the work I do as a professional in my field. The offering of various courses allowing further education and understanding is invaluable. So too, the recognition through the logo of CMA worldwide provides the opportunity to be of value to humanity, and for that I am most grateful.

Although I am now retired from practice, I have had a great interest in undertaking all of your advanced courses. This also keeps my neural connections active and contributes to positive health.

"As a psychotherapist in Toronto, I enjoy providing others with relational safety and connection. Infinitely grateful for the CMA for it has played this role for me with its valuable newsletter and supportive resources and community."
Naomi De Gasperis
During lockdown, I found the CMA drop in sessions useful and supportive. When everyone else seemed to go underground, the CMA kept in touch with its members for free.
Tracy Ferriss
As a Fellow of the CMA I have found a greater acceptance of comments and opinion when referring people to medical professionals.

I am impressed and inspired by the quality and integrity of the CMA. I so appreciate the unwavering commitment of the CMA and its impeccable staff to evidence-based information on complementary health practices. It continues to be an oasis and support for my own personal and professional approach to a healthier and better life. Thank you to the CMA and its president, Ms Jayney Goddard
