"Promoting Equality of Access to Holistic Healthcare in Europe"

EFCAM supports the right of citizens to make the healthcare choices that they consider best for each individual and family. CAM professionals offer a range of practices for maintaining health, preventing illness and providing more personally and financially sustainable treatment for many common illnesses.

Welcome by the EFCAM President

Thank you for taking time to visit our website.

Everyone agrees with the statement: your health is your wealth. EU Charters endorse this and the EU has some impressive public health policies and programmes. EU Member States all have Health Departments but all are overstretched and under funded. No more than 3% of health budgets go to Public Health, to health education, health promotion and prevention.


EFCAM unites European Federations of specific CAM modalities such as Reflexology and Shiatsu and national CAM Associations of multi modalities. Its principal objectives are to gain equality of access for citizens to CAM across Europe, and, to gain the right of all appropriately trained providers of CAM to practice.

See the EFCAM drop down Menu for full details about EFCAM.


CAM is a diverse range of autonomous healthcare practices used for health maintenance, health education, health promotion, disease prevention and for the treatment of ill-health.

CAM modalities have a distinct philosophical, diagnostic and methodological basis.
