The NZRA Annual Conference and AGM 

Rydges Hotel, Wellington


Preparations are in full swing for this year's conference. The theme for this year is "Moving our Profession Forward"

We are still waiting patiently for any progress on our application for registration under the HPCA Act but in the meantime we are continuing to grow and gather strength. Our annual conference is the perfect opportunity for us all to share skills and knowledge so that we can move ahead in the most positive way possible.

Those who attend our clinics throughout the country are benefitting from the development of stronger relationships between our profession and others. As we develop it is important that we continue to respect the history, the paradigms and the differences that underpin our medicine. With this in mind our presenters have been chosen to not only highlight recent developments but also to pass on skills which have been refined over hundreds of years. There will be an emphasis on participatory workshops throughout the weekend - providing skills that will be readily transferable to clinic on Monday morning. The aim is to cover all aspects of our medicine - acupuncture, herbs, qigong and tuina as well as from Japanese, Korean and 5 element perspectives.

Join us at the 38th NZRA Annual Conference and AGM to hear international and local presenters provide the most up-to-date research and clinical experience that will help us all as we move into what is essentially a new era. Mark your diaries now – Wellington, 14, 15 and 16 August 2015.

See you there.
