ARRC has been organising acupuncture research conferences since 1995. In 2013 for the first time this was extended to include Chinese herbal medicine but the focus is still mainly on acupuncture. We believe that research can provide a common meeting ground for different therapies and different backgrounds. Our partners now number four leading professional bodies: British Acupuncture Council, Acupuncture Association of Chartered Physiotherapists, Register of Chinese Herbal Medicine and Association of Traditional Chinese Medicine. This symposium is for practitioners and researchers, at all levels of expertise.

  • hear leading researchers provide new evidence that will support your practice
  • be inspired by the latest research developments
  • learn how you could conduct and present your own research
  • trade stands
  • refreshments
  • drinks reception afterwards: an ideal opportunity to socialise, discuss and learn
