Recognising achievement in the natural medicine profession.

Australia’s natural medicine industry is a diverse and pioneering sector, including areas such as naturopathy, nutrition, herbalism and remedial massage, and it helps hundreds of thousands of Australians live more fulfilling and healthier lives each year.

We want to recognise the natural medicine practitioners, clinics, and rising-star students that contribute to the industry’s growth and prosperity through the ATMS + Nature & Health 2017 Industry Awards.


If you are a natural medicine practitioner, a clinic, or a student, this is your chance to nominate yourself, addressing all or most of the judging criteria below. Or, if you know of a practitioner, clinic or student that you believe deserves recognition for the services they offer to further the industry, you may nominate them, addressing all or most of the judging criteria below.

Awards categories include:

Practitioner of the Year
Clinic of the Year
Student of the Year

All awards finalists (four per category), will be flown to Sydney for the ATMS + Nature & Health 2017 Industry Awards ceremony, where category winners will be announced and receive their awards. The winners will feature in an issue of Nature & Health magazine, and will be profiled on the Nature & Health website and in our e-news and on social media.
