2022 AIMA Conference

We are delighted to be bringing back our in-person conference on Friday 18th and Saturday 19th November 2022 at Auckland University of Technology in central Auckland, New Zealand.

The AIMA Conference is New Zealand’s leading event for the integrative medicine community.  A ‘must-do’ for all GPs, medical specialists, allied health practitioners, researchers, educators, students, and health professionals who want to learn about and understand how integrative medicine can be used to prevent and manage chronic and complex diseases.

Integrative medicine is a model of healthcare that is scientific, evidence-based, collaborative, and safe.  It aims to understand and address the matrix of factors that contribute to illness in each individual: physical, emotional, mental, social, spiritual, and environmental. It involves doctors and other healthcare practitioners working together in multi-disciplinary teams.  Treatment is informed by the safe wishes of patients who are active participants in co-designing and managing their care.  Integrative medicine specialises in preventive medicine and treating complex and chronic conditions.

The theme for 2022 is Optimising 21st-century healthcare; body, mind, and spirit and will include presentations from a host of charismatic and knowledgable integrative medicine experts from across the globe.

We want this year to be a true celebration – a chance to come together in person, gain new knowledge and skills to take back to our practices, and reignite our passion for integrative and wellness medicine and all that it can offer.

The conference offers:

  • health professionals with an opportunity to learn and update their knowledge in the field of integrative medicine, in a relaxed and safe environment
  • access to the latest research on integrative medicine
  • an opportunity for practitioners to interact with representatives of leading natural healthcare companies
  • practical skills that participants can apply in their personal and professional lives
  • a stimulating and interactive environment in which practitioners can reach out and build a community with each other and the industry.

Hosted at AUT, in Auckland’s vibrant city centre, the conference is a great opportunity to connect and network with speakers and like-minded practitioners whilst learning about the latest clinical and evidence-based information around integrative medicine. Full catering is provided as well as lots of useful information and advice from suppliers in the wellness industry.
