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!”

Welcome 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!

In recent polls, over 60% of respondents said they were trying to lose weight or would begin a weight loss program soon.
Can your practice benefit from offering a unique approach to weight loss? It certainly can! Below are the three key times to market a weight loss programs.
1. January 3rd – New Year’s resolutions
Follow the steps outlined in this article and you’ll enjoy a flood of new patients into your practice.
Each month there are nearly 4 million internet searches involving weight loss
It’s hard to believe THAT many people are searching for ways to lose weight…but those are the facts! There is a high demand for weight loss solutions, so…are you ready to promote a weight loss program in your practice?
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.
The 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:

Sometimes 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!

A major goal of our 2014 Seminar was to give you the answer to that question.
It all starts with a framework. Imagine building a house without proper framing…it simply wouldn’t work!
Day 3 of the seminar is designed to give you the tools you need to effectively build and market your practice.
There are 5 key elements you’ll learn
Kimberly was at the top of her game and shared tons of great clinical wisdom.
Now, if I’m Kimberly’s boss, owner of the company, and the guy who originally taught her about meridian graphing, you’d think she couldn’t teach me anything new, right?
Kimberly taught me all sorts of incredible things I didn’t know! And I thought I was the expert!
Here’s my TOP “10″ list of new things I learned from Kimberly
