In Europe

If Europe has already produced Guidelines and recommendations, as the WHO, for the performance of alternative medicine professions (Acupuncture, Osteopathy, Homeopathy, Phytotherapy), she is now free for each state to govern the application according to its own laws. However, Europe is preparing, probably in 2014, to legislate on this subject, since two totally opposite concepts exist today within the European Union.


     In the Nordic countries and the Netherlands, the exercise of the profession of non-medical Acupuncturist is free.

     In Switzerland, the exercise of the TA has always been free

     The kingdom Kingdom and Ireland tolerate,

     Recently, Portugal, favorable legislation, recognizing the non Practitioners Doctors, has been passed.


On behalf of the free movement of goods and services, apply even in the field of health, a non Acupuncturist Portuguese doctor holds a diploma in his country can exercise in France!

There where a processing discrimination and the French courts as Europeans could be sought.
