Webinar: Seal the Deal with Auriculotherapy

I’ve always thought of myself as pretty great when it came to ear acupuncture. That was until I figured out how much I DID NOT KNOW. It takes a lot more than memorizing a handful of really great point locations to become an amazing auriculotherapist. How I see it, there’s a difference between auriculoTHERAPY and auriculoMEDICINE. In fact, there are some practitioners that use ear acupuncture ALONE as their only treatment to resolve really difficult diseases. Imagine... Read more

Are you Kidding? How did that Happen?

If you look at the title of this post, you’ll see my exact response when I realized that 2017 is now over half over. HALF OVER? The thought gave me a sudden shock. Now don’t get me wrong. I know how a calendar works. But in my mind, 2017 was still new. I have plans, ideas, goals to accomplish this year, and when I realized time was half gone, I really had to stop and... Read more

Dr. Nogier’s Surprise: The Big Announcement I Didn’t Expect

As I’ve helped organize Dr. Nogier’s auriculotherapy seminars the last couple of years, the most exciting moment has always been when he finalizes his syllabus and sends me a copy. Because that’s when I finally get to announce the topics that Dr. Nogier will teach—and that I’ll get to learn. But I’ll tell you the truth: I was getting a bit antsy this year. I kept thinking I should have the syllabus by now, but it... Read more

AuriculoMEDICINE: Transform to Next Level Healing

Did you know there is a difference between auriculoTHERAPY and auriculoMEDICINE? I didn’t really understand this until last year, when I did training with Dr. Nogier. A couple of weeks ago I got an email from an average person who wanted to know if the Auriculotherapy Success Seminar was right for them. Here’s how the conversation went: Hello. I’m not an acupuncturist, but I want to know more about treating ears. I use pressure points... Read more

The Hidden Benefit of the Nogier Seminar

I attended my first Nogier seminar in 2013. Frankly, I went because it was HIM—Raphael Nogier—the current world expert in the pioneering technique his father, Dr. Paul Nogier, developed: auriculotherapy. I already knew the basics of auriculotherapy. And I knew a bit about Nogier’s approach. I thought the seminar would mostly be review of familiar information. I was wrong. To be honest, I really wasn’t prepared for the richness and depth of information Dr. Nogier... Read more

Webinar: AcuGraph – Why Does It Work?

OK, so maybe I’m kind of nerdy. I was 8 years old when I watched Star Wars the first time, and that’s when I decided to build a robot. Out of a trash can. Powered by a car battery. Just like R2-D2, right? Don’t judge. Yeah, I’ll admit I’ve always loved the engineering side of things. To tell you the truth, that’s what attracted me to acupuncture in the first place. But I also realize most... Read more
