We are thrilled to announce the launch of the ATMS Natural Medicine Awards 2022

Australia’s natural medicine industry is a diverse and pioneering sector, including areas such as Acupuncture, Naturopathy, Nutrition, Herbalism, Kinesiology, Homeopathy, Reflexology and Remedial Massage and our practitioners are dedicated to improving their client’s health and wellbeing.


The ATMS Natural Medicine Awards recognise natural medicine practitioners, clinics and rising-star students that contribute to the industry’s growth and prosperity.

Award categories include:

  1. Made a significant contribution to the Australian natural medicine profession
  2. Demonstrated excellence in their field
  3. Been an inspirational role model for other practitioners, clinics or students
  4. Volunteered their time or resources to support their local community
