We’d love to welcome you as a valued Member!


Who are CMA Members?


A quick introduction from CMA President, Jayney Goddard MSc, FCMA

Our Members are committed professionals - just like you, from all walks of life, all backgrounds, ethnicities, beliefs, physical abilities, nationalities and more.  We welcome everyone with open arms - and the uniting factor that joins us together is that we all share an absolute commitment to excellence and professionalism.  CMA Members care deeply about their patients, clients, students and are dedicated to offering only the very best treatments and services possible.  

Here at The CMA we like to think of this wonderful organisation as a 'family' as - over the years - that is what it has become.  In fact, we have many Members who have been with us since our beginning - back in 1993!  So, when we welcome a new Member in any category into The CMA, we are hoping that you'll be with us for many years - and for that to happen, we realise that we have to offer you the very best service imaginable.  We are dedicated to representing complementary medicine and natural healthcare at the very highest levels of government - ensuring that our collective voices are heard when it comes to policy-making - and decisions that impact the health of our nations, and our rights to practice or teach.  

To this end, you'll find that we are always the first port of call for newspapers, magazines, television, radio and online broadcasters when they need a sensible, balanced and evidence-based response to the latest health matter. We welcome your contributions too - we see ourselves as a platform to help you get your message out too - so please do get involved in all our promotional opportunities - of which we have many!  We'd love to see you getting active on our Facebook page and Members group, being interviewed on our YouTube Channel, providing articles for our weekly newsletter and of course for this website.  Note; we also have a vibrant practice growth Facebook group too and we thoroughly encourage to you get involved in this too - obviously, it is designed for practitioners - but all the information we share, my videos, 'Facebook Lives', worksheets and so on are equally applicable to everyone working in the field - so if you are running a school, join in anyway!  


Why The CMA has been so outstandingly successful over all these years
First of all, The CMA is renowned for having the very highest Membership standards of all multi-disciplinary organisations.  We demand higher qualifications than many other groups, and as we are a non-profit organisation - your fees go directly towards supporting complementary medicine - promoting and protecting the profession AND ensuring that the public (and doctors and other medical staff) has access to the very best practitioners and training schools. 

My colleagues and I are ALL complementary medicine practitioners (some have a nursing or medical background too), so when you speak to any of us, you'll know that we are speaking the same language as you - we fully understand what it means to be in practice - or to run a training school.  We are real people and you can actually talk to us on the telephone!  Pretty rare these days!

We are very proud to have each and every one of our Members on board with us! We do not take your Membership for granted and we appreciate that we have a duty to serve you to the very best of our abilities.  We are honoured to have you join us and we look forward to supporting you over the coming years as your complementary medical career blossoms.

Warmest wishes from the entire CMA Team and me!
