Like us on Facebook to see posts like those on the right…and share YOUR experience!

Today I have the pleasure of sharing an experience sent in by Cris Longacre L.Ac.

“I’ve gotta tell you, I’m here in Florida on a family emergency. I flew out of the house to run to Florida and only had time to grab my StimPlus Pro ear acupuncture machine and go!

The patient is a hospital administrator and had never tried acupuncture. I used the StimPlus and Auriculotherapy to completely eliminate her sciatic pain that has been present for the past 8 months. This was quickly done by treating the active points in her ears.  

She is now a total believer and thinks I am a miracle worker. The truth is, I know I was using a great tool. Practitioners need to understand how different the StimPlus Pro really is.

I’ve bought several stimulators over the years but this one really works with amazing results and ease of use. I have purchased units that were WAY more expensive and they never worked well. This one is so easy to use. I’ll never go anywhere without it again.

I also want to thank you for all the education and public awareness you provide. It has really helped me expand the services I offer and reach new patients.

I recently bought AcuGraph and I’m very pleased with it and learning to use it. It closely matches my more traditional 5 element style Akabane testing and pulse diagnosis, plus people love the visuals. Thank you and keep up the great work!”

“Lunch and Learn” with Kimberly

datePosted on 10:55, September 16th, 2014 by Kimberly Thompson, L.Ac.

Robin Green, L.AcWelcome to my FIRST “Lunch and Learn!”

Lunch and Learns are a great way to conveniently learn a little something new during your lunch break. Typically they last about 45-60 minutes and are presented via webinar, live discussion, recording or video.

Today’s lunch and learn will be presented via a prerecorded video I did with my friend Robin Green, L.Ac. from Acupuncture Pediatrics.

Robin and I had a great time chatting about acupuncture, kids, LIFE–and of course her latest Acupuncture Pediatrics Class which is starting September 29th!

As you know, Robin uses AcuGraph as a diagnostic tool in her clinic for kids. She is very comfortable using needles on kids, but she also knows that not EVERY child she works with is going to LOVE needles!

Here is what Robin has to say about Laser and the Stimplus Pro microcurrent device:

Dr. Nogier – Teaching in the USA!

datePosted on 14:53, September 9th, 2014 by Dr. Larsen

Telephone game2Remember playing the Telephone Game?  

This game consisted of saying a word or phrase to one person in a line and in turn they pass it on to the next person until it reaches the last person and then they share what they heard. The results are often hilarious!

Sometimes I wonder if that phenomena happens in the real world? We often hear things two or three times removed from the original source!

There is an old horse-racing phrase “straight from the horses mouth” that refers to getting the best tips about the condition of the horse you intend to bet on. If you can learn the inside news from the horse’s trainer or stable boy, that’s considered as close to the source as you can get.

Raphael Nogier_new_2008The only higher authority would be the horse himself. “Straight from the horse’s mouth” means you’re getting the inside information from the most authoritative source possible.

Learning from the original source is a great idea, and not just in horse racing. In healthcare, ideas get shared, passed around, interpreted, taught, and re-taught, which is great. But I like to get as close to the “horse’s mouth” as possible. That’s why I was so excited to see the following announcement:

5 Keys to Re-Activate Past Patients

datePosted on 13:51, August 28th, 2014 by Alan Gifford MS, Practice Coach

5 Steps to Patient reactivation FBSometimes patients stop coming to see you for the strangest reasons. Understanding how to re-engage inactive patients can help smooth out the highs and lows and create a steady revenue stream in your practice.

What are the 5 steps you need to take?

Over the years, patients come and go from your practice. Some may have seen your treatments as a short-term solution, while others didn’t see the results they wanted.

Either way, understanding how to re-engage old patients is important to running a successful private practice. They were a patient once, all they need is the right incentive to become one again!

Kimberly was at the top of her game and shared tons of great clinical wisdom.

Kimberly taught me all sorts of incredible things I didn’t know! And I thought I was the expert!

I’m NOT Allowed to Win?

datePosted on 11:35, July 17th, 2014 by Kimberly Thompson, L.Ac.

Pouty Face2Dang it! I really like to win…

Maybe I’m just a “little bit” competitive, but I get pretty frustrated when I don’t win–especially when I’m told that I CAN’T win, because I’m not allowed.

Here’s my problem:

I have a really great submission for our Laser Acupuncture Case Study Contest–in fact I have several, but my boss won’t even let me enter. He mentioned “office policy” and “legalities,” then he said something about only being able to win IF I didn’t work here….

Yeah you get the picture. I quit whining after that.

So, let me tell ya’ what he did agree too.

  • I can share my GREAT case study as a blog “example” to help motivate YOU to share your own laser case study.
  • AND–he’ll take me to lunch and let me help vote for the BEST case study submitted by our practitioners.

Since, I love my job–I obviously agreed to his proposal.

I Learned it With My Fingers First – Part 1

datePosted on 14:08, July 10th, 2014 by Kimberly Thompson, L.Ac.

As many of you know, I was a massage therapist for about a dozen years before I became an acupuncturist.

a Touch of Heaven Logo

While I was in college to learn TCM, I was blessed with the opportunity to transform my massage clients into road maps of discovery. The walls of my treatment room were always covered with handmade pictures and notes of whatever I was studying at the time.

As my hands explored the acupuncture channels, my fingers discovered some amazing acupuncture treasures that go far and beyond the book knowledge I gained in the classroom. A lot of what I learned during that time, helped me to become a better practitioner.

Have you Noticed these 5 Trends in Acupuncture?

datePosted on 12:04, July 8th, 2014 by Dr. Larsen

Sometimes I need to see the bigger picture.growth2

I’m reminded of the story of the logger who is so busy working in the forest, harvesting and hauling trees, that he never takes time to stop and consider the forest itself.

So from time to time, I like to take a step back from my day-to-day work and consider the acupuncture profession in general. I’ve worked in and around the profession for the last 14 years, which doesn’t make me the most experienced voice out there, but I do have unique insight from working in the specific areas of my expertise.

As I’ve watched the profession grow and evolve over the years, I’ve noticed the following five trends emerging and growing among acupuncture professionals:

My Wife’s Back Completely Locked Up…

datePosted on 11:22, June 27th, 2014 by Alan Gifford MS, Practice Coach

GardeningLife is full of challenges and opportunities.

Let me share an experience that happened a couple of months ago.

This year my wife and I decided we’d plant a garden! We are excited to enjoy the fresh squash, carrots, onions, corn, delicious strawberries and much more!

The work began when we realized the best place in our back yard to have a garden is along the back fence where the little plants will get the best Southern exposure to our Summer sun.

There was only one problem with this plan. We had a big 10′x20′ shed parked right in the middle of that space plus decorative planters and trees all around it.

We knew we had a big job in front of us to say the least!

Burning back painOn one particular Saturday, after moving the shed and digging up the decorative trees and shrubs, Ann’s back decided it had had enough.

We all want to be “LIKED”… Right?

datePosted on 11:56, June 25th, 2014 by Dr. Larsen

Facebook-likeDo people “like” your stuff?

A few years ago, well before Facebook came along, “likes” were very important to me. I wasn’t posting cat pictures or telling funny stories. I was bringing new technology products to the acupuncture market and hoping people would benefit from them.

It’s never comfortable introducing a new product to the acupuncture world.

  • There are so many “what if” questions to answer.
  • What if it doesn’t work as well in the real world?
  • What if nobody buys it?
  • What if people don’t “like” it?

Like I said, uncomfortable. Sometimes you just have to close your eyes and push the button, so to speak, trusting that everything will work out. You know what relieves the anxiety?

The first testimonial. It only takes one “like.”

And that’s exactly how it worked ten years ago when I released the first QiPulse red lasers. I sent one to my friend and mentor, Dr. Richard Yennie, who said he would try it and let me know what he thought. I sure hoped he would find it effective, but not just that. I hoped he would like it.
