The BAcC is the membership body for career practitioners of professional traditional acupuncture. We are globally recognised and a leading member of the European Association of Traditional Chinese Medicine acupuncture.
Our membership is comprised of those who have completed degree level qualifications or equivalent. Through our sister organization, the British Acupuncture Accreditation Board, we ensure high standards of acupuncture education in the UK and its professional standing.
If you're just starting out, the BAcC supports you through regional groups and professional development leads. Services include business/legal support, marketing templates, forums and social media communities. In our London office we have full time staff to provide advice on marketing, safe practice, legal and Continuing Professional Development matters. We host an annual conference and research symposium, provide a peer review journal (EJOM) a monthly e news bulletin, and a members newsletter five times a year. For all members, however, long they have been with us, we offer piece of mind with standard insurance and legal protection and expert advice from our specialist staff team.
We offer enhanced status as we are the only traditional acupuncture body accredited by the government's Professional Standards Authority assured voluntary register scheme. For those who are looking further enhance their professional standing, we offer a Fellowship scheme. Our high standards also in practice mean that you can access patients from private health insurers and the NHS.
As an institution, the British Acupuncture Council we offer a voice, campaigning visibly for traditional acupuncture. BAcC can trace its roots back to the early 60s and has been working tirelessly to promote the value of traditional acupuncture to the public and policy makers since its formation from five precursor associations in 1996.
In short, BAcC membership ensures that its members are well trained, safe and effective – with ongoing quality validated by external scrutiny. We look forward to welcoming you as a BAcC member.
