Homoeopathic self-care and education have developed rapidly in Japan since Torako Yui, the first Japanese homoeopath, has started to introduce homoeopathy to the country in the late 1990s.

The JPHMA is engaged in the promotion, academic research, education and international exchange of homoeopathy in Japan. The establishment of indemnity insurance for homoeopaths in 2005 enabled them to practice homoeopathy without anxiety and led to an increase in their social status. Furthermore, we began operating alongside the Japanese Homoeopathic Foundation established in March 2009.

The JPHMA is an association open to all professional homoeopaths across methodological and dogmatic boundaries, and the only nonprofit organization in Japan to provide indemnity insurance. It is highly recommended that every homoeopath, either classical or practical, be qualified as a JPHMA certified homoeopath in order to practice in Japan. Please feel free to enquire with the JPHMA head office for more details.


The Japanese Homoeopathic Medical Association, the largest homoeopathy organisation in Japan, operates for the enlightenment and study of homoeopathy and toward the diffusion and expansion of homoeopathic medicine. We aim to establish the social position of registered homoeopath by attempting to determine, maintain and improve levels of skill in the profession. Our organisation also hopes to lay the foundation of homoeopathy in Japan so that everyone can have the opportunity to benefit.

Activities of JPHMA

Homoeopathy works by stimulating our natural healing power, and it is this message that the JPHMA is working toward spreading throughout Japan as well as increasing health awareness so that the population are better equipped to protect themselves.

In an aging society, the JPHMA understands the importance of modern homoeopaths who are familiar with both the theoretical and practical aspects of homoeopathy. It is vital to have a system in place to evaluate the capability of homoeopaths and maintain and improve levels of skill. It is for this reason that the JPHMA has introduced a certification examination and also offers practitioners the opportunity to sit similar ones conducted other related homoeopathic organisations around the world. We also hold an annual congress, lectures for continuous professional development and have introduced a renewal system in order to raise level of homoeopaths. Homoeopathy centres have been established around Japan to provide homoeopathic treatment to patients in a relaxed, caring environment. Moreover, the JPHMA now provides indemnity insurance for professional homoeopaths and is aiming to establish a social position for them through a series of activities. We believe that both modern Western medicine and homoeopathy each have their own strengths and weaknesses but that they have the potential to complement one another in a cooperation that can truly benefit the future of people in Japan.

In July 2006, the JPHMA joined the ICH, the international version of the European Central Council of Homeopaths (ECCH), which is the largest homoeopathic organisation in the world - consisting of 32 organisations from 29 countries.

Since 25 March 2015, JPHMA has become Observer Status with ICH.

We are active in both the international and Japanese homoeopathy scenes as we work to promote the development of homoeopathy in conjunction with other homoeopathy organisations worldwide.
