The British Medical Acupuncture Society

The British Medical Acupuncture Society is a registered charity established to stimulate and promote the use and scientific understanding of acupuncture within medicine for the public benefit. We seek to enhance the education and training of suitably qualified practitioners and to promote high standards of working practices in acupuncture. Members have regulated healthcare professionals who practice acupuncture within the scope of their professional practice.

Acupuncture in Medicine is the official journal of the BMAS UK. Members can access the full content of the journal via the Members’ Area of this website. Or click here for limited access. The journal has a blog – AiM Blog, which is now moving to the BMAS Blog.

BMAS (UK) Points Resource is a series of video demonstrations of examination and needling techniques presented together with diagrams and notes. Click on the part of the body you are treating to see examination techniques, then click on the point illustrated to see how to needle it. Contains guidance notes, explanations and diagrams.

Acupuncture training courses are run by the BMAS for regulated healthcare professionals. Book early to get reduced EARLY BIRD prices (available for Foundation courses and Spring & Autumn meetings).
