The Australian Traditional-Medicine Society (ATMS) is Australia’s largest professional association of natural medicine practitioners, representing about 65% of the total natural medicine profession. ATMS was founded in 1984 and is an incorporated not-for-profit company with the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ABN 46 002 844 233). As at November 2010, ATMS had 11,757 financial members. ATMS is the only natural medicine practitioner association appointed to two Commonwealth statutory committees, where it represents the interests of the entire natural medicine practitioner profession.

ATMS is governed by an Executive Board of Directors. The functions of ATMS are carried out by the Directors, assisted by fulltime and part-time staff. Additionally specialised Departments of Chinese Massage Therapy, Traditional Chinese Medicine, Homeopathy, Naturopathic Nutrition, Naturopathy and Western Herbal Medicine address the specific needs of practitioners in these disciplines. State Representatives further represent the needs of members and promote ATMS in each State and the ACT.
