10 Things You’ll Miss if You’re Not at AcuGrowth 2019 5/5 (34)

Have you heard? This May, we’re hosting our annual Acupuncture Growth Symposium in Boise, Idaho! We’ve taken great care to ensure that every detail is planned to perfection. We can’t wait to welcome you to our home town! If you’ve already reserved your ticket, you have SO MUCH to look forward to! If you haven’t bought your tickets yet, you can do so here.

We encourage you to reserve your soon. There’s less than 10 seats left at AcuGrowth 2019 already.

We’ve written up this list of the 10 things you’ll miss if you’re not at AcuGrowth 2019…

But before we get to that list, we’ll address one more thing. We know what you might be thinking. ‘Another symposium?’

Another Symposium? 

Hey, we get it. The prospect of attending another acupuncture training might sound a bit dull to you. Don’t worry—we’ve been there too… drooling through hours of mind-mumblingly boring classes just to take home a handful of Continuing Education credits. Wondering where you’ll stay, what you’ll eat and how you’ll get around. Knowing that in the end, all of the time and headache probably won’t even lead to lasting change or positive results in your practice. 

We know you’re busy. We know that you’re a professional with a glowing skillset, a full schedule, and a hunger to see actual results in your practice. We’ve been to a lot of symposiums. And we’ve planned a lot of them too. 

So this is our promise to you. 

What Makes AcuGrowth Different

Content you Care About

AcuGrowth 2019 will be unlike any training you’ve attended before. It will be engaging, informative and enlightening. We want you to take home life-changing knowledge about acupuncture, auriculotherapy and actual treatment plans and processes that successful practitioners use every day. We want to blow your mind with cutting edge information and tools.

We want to teach you in a very hands-on, powerful way to apply new tools and treatment techniques in your practice, and equip you with the knowledge you need to treat the actual conditions of our day—conditions like chronic pain, autism spectrum disorders, emotional disorders and Fibromyalgia.

Food, Friends and Fun—Stress Free

Just as importantly, we will do everything in our power to make this a STRESS-FREE weekend! This is your chance to step away from the stress of day-to-day life. That’s why we’ve taken care of little details.

If you’re still on the fence about whether to attend, read on! Maybe we can help make up your mind.

Here are the 10 Things you’ll Miss if you’re not at AcuGrowth 2019

1. The chance to learn how one practitioner grew his practice from zero patents to 90-100 per week. 

Dr. Jared M. McCollum, Dr. TCM, R.Ac., based in Canada, will teach attendees how he uses AcuGraph to help his patients get incredible results. He understands how to use a patient referral system to keep a steady stream of excited new patients flooding in. And when those patients come, he knows how to help them get better quickly and effectively so that they leave happy, tell their friends, and then come back for more.

If you’re wondering how you can fill up your schedule without spending money and time on aggressive advertising, Dr. McCollum’s story, and his applicable advice, might just change your life.

2. Kimberly’s first ever demonstration of her out-of-the-box system for treating chronic pain and Fibromyalgia 

Kimberly Thompson, L.Ac., uses an array of out-of-the-box tools and techniques to bring relief to sufferers of chronic pain and Fibromyalgia. Her background in massage and bodywork (along with acupuncture, of course) gives her a unique perspective on the flow of energy through the pathways of the body—especially the often forgotten musculotendino pathways. Kimberly is passionate about helping people take their lives back from chronic pain with a multifaceted approach including dietary and lifestyle changes, massage, acupuncture and auriculotherapy.

Kimberly has a particular affinity for working with the extraordinary vessels to restore deep, powerful and lasting balance to the body. Her success has won her a stunning reputation in the community as the go-to practitioner for patients with chronic pain. This year at AcuGrowth, she’s sharing her secrets with you!

3) A class from the passionate and experienced Dr. Quigless about using acupuncture to help patients with Autism Spectrum Disorders

Dr. Quigless, a practicing chiropractor and acupuncturist in St. Louis, Missouri, has had incredible success treating Autism Spectrum Disorders using acupuncture. With such disorders growing ever more prevalent in the world, it’s increasingly important for acupuncturists to provide the help and answers that the mainstream medical world simply hasn’t given. Acupuncture has shown great promise in clinical studies in not only reducing the severity of symptoms, but also in helping to improve communication ability and behavioral patterns in patients with autism.

Dr. Quigless’ success in this field and his passion for his work will surely enlighten and inspire AcuGrowth attendees—opening your mind to your unique ability to make a real difference for these patients, too.

4) Become an auriculotherapy master with foundational skills and advanced techniques from Dr. Larsen 

Dr. Adrian Larsen, the president and founder of Miridia Acupuncture Technology, developed a passion for auriculotherapy years ago when he discovered how effective it can be. He went on a mission to find the most complete and powerful tools for auriculotherapy today. Not only does he understand the power of auriculotherapy—but he also understands the ins and outs of technology. Therefore, he can put complicated concepts into simple terms that anyone can understand.

He will show you that auriculotherapy is not only powerful and effective—it’s also simple and efficient. If you’re not using auriculotherapy, you will be after AcuGrowth 2019. We can pretty much guarantee it.

5) Be one of the first to hear Dr. McCollum’s protocol using the Five Elements for Emotional Core Treatments

Emotions affect every one of your patients in some way—it’s simply part of being a human. Learn how you can help free your patients from the trap of their emotions and help them heal by letting go.

A beautiful addition to any acupuncture treatment, Dr. McCollum’s system is a tried and true, breakthrough way to help patients find peace and relief through understanding, acceptance and release of negative emotions that may be detrimental to their health and wellness.

Even better, this is a system that Dr. McCollum personally developed through his years of study and experience, and AcuGrowth 2019 will be his first time teaching it at our Symposium! You don’t want to miss the chance to be among the first practitioners to learn this breakthrough technique straight from the mouth of its creator.

6) Master the modern tools and techniques that are VITAL to the success of a 21st century acupuncture practice 

Laser. Electroacupuncture. Light Therapy. Non-needle techniques. These areas present a HUGE opportunity to acupuncturists to treat patients who may have deep imbalances, or even deep fears of needles. Learning to master and employ non-needle techniques in your practice may be the breakthrough that you’ve waited for—but were too afraid to explore.

Learn which tools you need, how to use them correctly, and how to explain them to your patients and practitioners of other disciplines. This modern age calls for modern tools, explained in simple language that your patients can understand. Dr. Adrian Larsen and Kimberly Thompson will be there to help you do just that at AcuGrowth 2019.

7) Optional, hands-on “Introduction to AcuGraph” class 

If you’re already a whiz with AcuGraph, we commend you for that. But we know that there are many of you who are just getting started, or who may have let your AcuGraph sit on the shelf for a little while. And that’s okay! We want to help you get amazing results with AcuGraph, and to do that, you need to know how to use it. You need to feel comfortable with it. That’s what we’re here for.

We want to help you get amazing results with AcuGraph, and to do that, you need to know how to use it. You need to feel comfortable with it. That’s what we’re here for.

You don’t want to miss out on this opportunity to get one-on-one help with every aspect of your AcuGraph—from proper point location, to analyzing a graph, to understanding your online user account. Come to our optional AcuGraph class the night before the symposium begins and you’ll leave feeling ready to dive headfirst into classes on Saturday!

8) A tour of Miridia Technology’s headquarters 

If you come to the AcuGraph training, you’ll also get the opportunity to see and tour our facility! Want to see the room where Dr. Larsen tests and designs new products? The studio where are videos are filmed? The warehouse where we ship out your orders? Now’s your chance!

Come check out our humble building in the center of beautiful Meridian, Idaho, and get to know our staff. Put a face to that name you’ve talked with on the phone, and see the raw, real side of what our company does every single day. 

We hope it will make you feel even more connected to our vision and our team when you see the place where we do our work, and we can’t wait to feel more connected with you by showing you our home.

9) Mini classes and lunch sessions for hands-on product training 

One of our favorite parts about hosting symposiums is our chance to meet and connect with each of you individually, and answer your specific questions about the products you use every day. That’s why we’ve allotted a big chunk of time for your lunch hour—because we’ll be there, hanging out and waiting to answer your questions, demo products and teach you COOL STUFF!

We’ll cover topics on an as-needed basis. This will be your chance to ask questions you may have had for years. We’ll make sure to cover the topics that you really want to learn more about. This time is for YOU.

10) FUN social opportunities that everyone is invited to 

Like we said, we want this weekend to be fun and relaxing. A chance to not only learn new things, but also to make new friends. That’s why we’ve organized some special social events like an evening cocktail hour with the Miridia staff on Saturday, and a taco party at the home of our very own Kimberly Thompson on Friday night. Everyone is invited!

Ask attendees of our previous symposiums. We think they’ll all tell you the same thing—those Miridia Technology people know how to throw a good party!

We’ll have great food, fun activities and beautiful venues where you’ll get the chance to befriend dozens of other practitioners in a cozy, laid-back environment. We want your trip to Boise to be FUN, so don’t leave without making a new friend (and maybe drinking a cocktail or two).
