Our Mission


Our mission is to provide excellence, high quality and safe practice of Chinese herbalism in Ireland. Our association is committed to establishing and maintaining the highest standards in professional training for medical herbalists who use the traditions of Chinese herbalism. We support best practice and all our members comply with the codes of ethics and best practice of this association.

As a professional organisation we provide guidance, support and leadership to our member herbalists and represent them with government and related agencies in Ireland and the EU. We encourage communication between medical herbalists and other health professionals and encourage ethical research into herbal medicine. Our rules require that our members do not use endangered herbs and we work to promote awareness in endangered medicinal plant species.
