Member update

Welcome to the new-look website

by in Updates 6 July 2021

We have been working hard behind the scenes to develop a site that’s fit for purpose, providing advice and guidance for the public and our members. We lay out what is acupuncture, what the evidence says, what to expect in your treatment, and what our members are doing to ensure your safety during the current COVID pandemic.

We are the only traditional acupuncture organisation to be on the Accredited Register scheme which is run by the Government-backed Professional Standards Authority. When choosing an acupuncturist from our register you can be assured that they have been properly vetted and approved, have the highest level of education and our continuous oversight and support. We take our role seriously to support the public and our members.
Members will find information to help them in their practice through continuing professional development (CPD), online webinars and campaigns, as well as other events including our annual conference, our popular ARRC Symposium and regional group meetings. We have laid out our extensive benefits for membership, including all the necessary policy and guidance as well as other support and help we provide throughout practice, including discounts, insurance and a 24-hour legal helpline to name a few, in our members area.

If you are interested in becoming an acupuncturist, read about the work of our partner organisation the British Acupuncture Accreditation Board (BAAB). And if you would like to join us, please go to our join us page and start your enrolment today!

Over the summer we will continue to add to our site, providing more resources. We aim put our members at the heart of everything we do and will continue to increase our engagement and support, highlighting their work and expertise.
