The practice of Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine is highly regulated in Australia. In Victoria government registration of Chinese medicine practitioners has been in place for many years and since 2012 the Chinese Medicine profession joined the National Registration and Accreditation Scheme for Health Professions under the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA). AHPRA also regulates other allied health practitioners such as physiotherapists, chiropractors, dentists, nurses, and midwives. This means all Acupuncturists and Chinese medicine practitioners in Australia must be registered with AHPRA and The Chinese Medicine Board of Australia (CMBA). To do so they must meet the high levels of training, qualification standards and codes of conducts set by these regulatory agencies in order to safely offer acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine treatments to the public.
All the practitioners at Natural Wellness Albert Park are government registered with CMBA and AHPRA. They all have health science degrees and/or similar high levels of qualifications and have undergone extensive training within acupuncture and Chinese medicine. They are all members of professional associations (such as AACMA), have appropriate levels of public liability and indemnity insurance, up to date first aid qualifications and are providers with all the major health insurance funds.
