The BMAS Code of Practice

This Code of Practice is produced by, and represents the views of, the British Medical Acupuncture Society. It describes the expected levels of competence and professionalism of its Members, recommendations for the safe practice of acupuncture, and information on how the Society handles complaints against its Members.

The BMAS promotes the use of acupuncture as a therapy following orthodox medical diagnosis by suitably trained practitioners. The therapy is applied using modern scientific principles rather than traditional theory. It is recognised that some Members use a traditional diagnostic assessment, but this is as an adjunct rather than as an alternative to the orthodox medical approach.
