Do you like secrets? 5/5 (38)

This last week I have been working on a REALLY BIG project. It’s a secret, but I’ll give you a couple of hints...

#1: I’ve been editing hours and hours of video.

#2: I’ve been creating test questions for the NCCAOM, California and Florida boards.

I’ll tell you what I’ve been working on IF you don’t tell my boss that I told you….  Deal??? (He doesn’t like information to leak out too quickly because then we get tons of phone calls with questions that we don’t have all of the answers to.)

Are you ready?!?


I’ve been working on the Jake Fratkin 2012 training DVDs

which should be coming out SOON!


I can’t give you an exact date as of yet, but I thought you would be excited to hear that they are on the horizon. Currently, we are awaiting CEU approval from the NCCAOM, CA and Florida boards. Everyone who attended the seminar in January of this last year is aware that we recorded the seminar and many have prepaid for their copy. If you purchased a copy of the training back in January, we will be sending it out to you before we receive approval, because you have already earned your CEU’s. You can’t hold me to it, but it looks like these pre-release copies may be shipping as soon as one week from now. For everyone else, you will have to wait patiently. But at least you can still be excited because I let you in on the secret!

I had a lot of fun going through these videos. I have officially taken Dr. Jake Fratkin’s training four times now. Each time I learn something new that I can incorporate into my clinic immediately. I can honestly tell you that my private practice has DOUBLED since my first weekend training with Dr. Fratkin 18 months ago.

Many of you may remember the series that I wrote after studying with Dr. Fratkin entitled “I am Convinced…” If you have not read this series, I challenge you to click on the links below and take a look. You will see how my perspective changed in relation to TCM and how I incorporated what I learned into my private practice. Since then, I have shared story after story of successful acupuncture treatment strategies based on the principles that I learned from Dr. Fratkin.

I am Convinced–Part 1: Meridian Therapy

I am Convinced–Part 2: Yin Leads, Yang Follows

I am Convinced–Part 3: Trust the Graph

I am Convinced–Part 4: Root versus Branch


I’m really excited for you to experience Dr. Fratkin’s training and see it with your own eyes instead of through mine. I can’t wait to hear your success stories and the changes that come about in your practice. So, hang tight and know that it is coming soon! Remember–you can’t call the office and ask a lot of questions because I wasn’t supposed to leak our secret yet. You can be trusted, right??? Rest assured that everything is coming together nicely and that all of the details will be coming from Dr. Larsen in the near future.

It’s been a really long and fulfilling week and I have a lot of catching up to do. This week, Alan and I will be heading to the Great River Symposium in Minnesota to promote AcuGraph. If any of you are in the area, stop by our booth and say hello. I would love to graph you! Now–I think I’ll go and take a nap.

Have a great week.

      1. These are only available for purchase right now for those who attended the event live. General sales will open after we have approval for continuing education credit from NCCAOM, the state of California, and the state of Florida. We do not know when this will be finalized. Anyone who attended the event live, and did not pre-order the DVDs in person, can call us to request an early copy of the DVDs on an individual basis.

  1. Please look into the online option. For me, receiving parcels here in China has become a hassle. Perhaps you could do a survey to gauge interest in online videos? Thanks.

  2. These DVD’s will be more beneficial to those of us who could not attend the seminar, ha ha. I can’t wait to order them, thanks again, and as always, keep the great work!

So, what do you think about it?
