What are the conditions of membership?

ACMAC Clinic members must provide acupuncture at affordable rates. Member clinics are asked to provide acupuncture treatment at no more than half the local “going rate” for one-to-one treatment. We strongly encourage clinics to offer a sliding scale of prices as this is a powerful tool to increase access to treatment.

We recommend the following sliding scale: £15 – £35/€20 – 45/AUD23 – 55, for both initial and follow-up appointments. If your rates are much outside of this range, your membership may be suspended.

ACMAC supports the provision of acupuncture in accessible, multibed settings. If you do not practise in a multibed setting you may still join ACMAC as a clinic member if you can demonstrate that you are offering your community affordable and accessible treatment, i.e in an existing project such as HIV care or drug rehab, or for victims of traumatic events or natural disasters. One-to-one practitioners who offer concessionary rates to some patients will not be able to join as a clinic member. This is because we believe that it is not a good business model for practitioners or patients. We believe that multibed clinics are the best way to provide affordable treatment to patients and sustainable work for practitioners.

ACMAC does not regulate either practitioners or clinics. We do not have the funds to do this and we do not wish to duplicate the roles (and expense) of national regulatory bodies. ACMAC member clinics are asked to abide by the codes of conduct and safe practice of your national regulatory body, such as the British Acupuncture Council or the Chinese Medicine Board of Australia.

How much does membership cost?

Rates are the same for Clinic members and Supporters.

UK members: £60 – £180 per membership period or part membership period (see below)

International members: Local currency equivalent to £60 – £180: Any payments made in foreign currency will be automatically converted to UK£ by PayPal.

We charge our fees on a sliding scale because we think it is the fairest way to include multibed clinics of different sizes and types as well as other supporters, students and patients. Your payment should reflect how well-established your clinic is, and/or how many clinic members you have (all of whom can enjoy member benefits), but you do not need to justify the amount you pay. If you have more than one clinic under the same name/brand you may pay one fee. However in fairness to other clinics we ask that you pay at least £60 per clinic.

Students have a special rate of £50 in the UK, or equivalent for overseas currencies. (Any payments made in foreign currency will be automatically converted by PayPal). This may now be paid by direct transfer, cheque or monthly Standing Order  for UK students only, or by a single lump sum by PayPal for international students only. 

It is our intention that membership fees are kept as affordable as possible. We are committed to seeking income from other sources in order to achieve this.

IMPORTANT: Your membership will not commence until payment has been received.

Each membership year runs from January to January.

If you join in the last 2 months of the membership year you are welcome to pay £30 for the remainder of that year’s membership. Those members will then be asked to renew membership and pay the next year’s membership fees irrespective of what date they joined on 31st January.

How can I pay my membership fees?

PayPal – The safer, easier way to pay online.

Non-UK members must pay using PayPal. This is to avoid punitive fees involved in currency exchange. Please pay your membership in full. Do not aim to make small monthly payments.

NOTE: Please do not set up a regular yearly payment schedule with PayPal, as your circumstances and our fees may change from one year to the next. You will be invoiced for any subsequent payments at renewal time (January each year).

Standing order

Please choose this method if possible. It offers these benefits:

  • For you, a regular small monthly payment, rather than a larger lump sum.
  • For ACMAC, the blessing of greater automisation. ACMAC is run on a very tight budget and maximising automisation of this aspect of our work means more time can be spent on supporting members and trying to get more affordable acupuncture out into the world.

These are the account details you will need to set up a standing order:

Account name: ACMAC
Sort code: 08-92-99
Account number: 65659027

Monthly standing order = fee paid per annum.
£5.00 = £60.00
£7.50 = £90.00
£10.00 = £120.00
£12.50 = £150.00
£15.00 = £180.00

Special student rate of £50 per year equates to £4.17 per month.

Please do not set up a standing order for a small monthly amount from a country outside the UK.

BACS transfer – Alternatively you can make a one off payment to our bank account. Please put your personal name or clinic name as the reference.
