Join our Growing California Ayurveda Community

As insurance rates increase, more and more Californians are looking for different modalities to maintain health. Ayurveda is at the forefront of this movement and ripe to become one of the States most sought after holistic healing modalities along with Acupuncture and Massage Therapy. The California Association of Ayurvedic Medicine (CAAM) has been the voice of the California Ayurvedic profession since 2001. By joining our community you can:

  • Lend your time and voice, which will become our collective conviction, and strength, to shape policies that will propel Ayurveda forward in California.
  • Collaborate with other Ayurvedic practitioners and Ayurvedic students as well as those who are lovers of Ayurveda
  • Connect with suppliers of Ayurvedic health products for professional use
  • Support members including international associates of CAAM.

Why You Should Care

CAAM is instrumental in positioning Ayurvedic medicine at the forefront of Californian health care. It represents the interests of the combined Ayurvedic community throughout California. Hence, if you care about Ayurveda, then you should also care about what is happening in CAAM. Currently, we are able to practice our profession under The California Health Freedom Act SB577. This allows us to practice under certain guidelines and we must indicate that we are not able to treat, prescribe or diagnose a client. Ayurveda, is a valid science that deserves the same rights that other holistic practices have been able to achieve in the form of licensure.
