Acupuncture Practice Opportunities

Well, it Happened. How do we Move Forward?

Post-apocalyptic Acupuncture Practice Opportunities Wow. Almost nobody saw it coming. We thought it was a sure thing; the outcome was a foregone conclusion. And yet, when it hit, it caught nearly everyone by surprise, resulting in shock, fear, uncertainty, even outrage. Who even suspected we’d end up here? No, I’m not talking about the election—yet.

What is the Graph REALLY Showing?

This year, just for a change, I attended the ACEP conference in Santa Clara, California. It was a great experience, but what was most surprising was what it taught me about AcuGraph and the “energy” it measures.  You might be surprised at what I learned. I’ll cut to the chase and tell you up front, AcuGraph is measuring more than I thought it was. When people ask me what is being measured, I usually respond along the... Read more

New patients don’t realize that my technique is new, but long-term patients are noticing that something is “different” with... Read more
