New Zealand

AIMA has a long and vibrant history in New Zealand.  AIMA NZ is run by a New Zealand-based management committee under the auspices of AIMA Australia.  This committee is chaired by AIMA Vice President, Dr. Tim Ewer.  We are currently working to constitute AIMA NZ as a separate legal entity.


Our New Zealand activities include a major conference in Auckland each year.  The conference is a highlight of the year for the New Zealand integrative medicine community and a fabulous occasion to learn the latest and to meet and socialize with colleagues.

For 2021, we successfully offered a fully virtual conference, the 2021 AIMA Virtual Conference held over the weekend on 27-28 March entirely online.  This offered a safe and practical way to host the event during the COVID-19 pandemic, and also allowed us to extend our audience, introduce new and exciting ways to interact, and provide flexibility for those under COVID restrictions to participate. To get an idea of what our in-person conference usually consists of, take a look at what we did for 2020, it was a huge success!


In 2020, we also held a Pre-Conference Retreat based around the topic “Healing, ourselves and the planet” from 6pm Wednesday 4th March to 5pm Friday 6th March at the beautiful Bella Rakha Retreat Centre in Oratia, Auckland. For full information on what was involved, click HERE. Please note, we will not be offering a pre-conference retreat in 2021.


Covid-19 restrictions permitting, we offer these in-person meetings in Auckland each month. They offer the chance to learn about a new topic of interest in the integrative medicine field as well as the opportunity to meet and network with like-minded practitioners in an informal setting.
