What we do

Since its inception in 1992, AIMA has grown to be the leading voice for integrative practitioners. AIMA’s membership and successful events, including the International Holistic Health Conference, have helped promote the growing body of research and provide education about complementary medicines and therapies.


AIMA has forged relationships with key organisations such as the RACGP – through the AIMA/RACGP Joint Working Party, TGA and AMA as well as other professional bodies with an interest in integrative therapies.   Currently AIMA has a special Joint Working Party with the RACGP (Royal Australian College of General Practitioners). AIMA works collaboratively with other associations such as the Australian College of Nutritional and Environmental Medicine (ACNEM) in a spirit of mutual support.


AIMA has prepared Position Statements on areas of complementary medicine such as Long Consultations by medical practitioners.


AIMA seeks to ensure both practitioners and consumers have access to the best available knowledge about the benefits and risks of these modalities so that optimal patient care and good health can be achieved and maintained.
