Webinar: Patients are Getting Better, Faster Part 2

Like part 1, this webinar is focused toward advanced practitioners and techniques. I won’t be focusing on simple tonification and sedation techniques, simple graph analysis, marketing strategies, etc. This is about the real nuts and bolts of...

Case Study: Ion Pumping Cords

Let’s talk about “Ion Pumping Cords”. Have you ever used them or even heard of them? I started using ion pumping cords in my clinic about 9 months ago, and the results have been pretty amazing. After sharing my experiences with our AcuGraph 5 user group, many of you have started using ion pumping cords as well. I get emails and phone calls from practitioners regularly who are having similar experiences with the cords as... Read more

Webinar Follow-up: Patients are Getting Better, Faster

Do you remember when I began teaching practitioners the importance of a six treatment series? I came up with my “magical” number of six because, at the time, six was typical. When treating a patient with a difficult condition, I’ve found that a series of visits is most effective. It gives me time to work through the many layers of imbalances contributing to the patient’s chief complaint. It also gives me a chance to use... Read more

Some of you have been reading my blog posts since day one, so you know that I’m not doing things NOW the way I did things THEN. I hope you aren’t either.

Webinar: How to Get the Most Out of your AcuGraph Package

You know, like that ab exercise machine that looked so good on the infomercial? No, but seriously, we all do it.

Posturology and its Connection to Auriculotherapy

About a month ago I received word from Dr. Raphael Nogier that he decided to bring a friend and colleague with him to teach at the Auriculotherapy Success seminar in October, Dr. Michel Marignan, a world-renowned expert in posturology. At first I was a little confused. How could anyone possibly help Dr. Nogier give a better seminar than he does on his own? As the son of the founder of auriculotherapy, Dr. Nogier is THE...

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
