The 3-Level Acupuncture Balance: Part 1-The Treatment 5/5 (24)

Over the last number of years, I have been using AcuGraph to guide me in a protocol I have come to call the 3-Level Acupuncture Balance. Over the next couple months, I will present a series of posts describing what this balance is, why I think it offers a deep and profound treatment, and the history of its development. In this first post, I will jump right to the mechanics of how to perform the... Read more

Webinar: Patients are Getting Better, Faster Part 2 5/5 (18)

This is the second, and final, webinar in the Patients are Getting Better, Faster series. I presented the first part back in September, but because I had so much valuable information to share, I decided to do a 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 5/5 (20)

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 5/5 (17)

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

Webinar: Patients are Getting Better, Faster Part 1 5/5 (19)

For this month’s webinar, we decided to switch things up a bit! Many of the webinars we do are geared toward a more general audience, but this month, I wanted the opportunity to teach an advanced webinar to our seasoned practitioners. I can’t tell you how excited I am! Then Versus Now Looking back over the course of my acupuncture career, I realize I’ve gone through 3 phases to get to where I am now,... Read more

Then Versus Now 5/5 (19)

Do you ever take a moment to sit down and think about how far you’ve come in your career? Many of you have watched me grow and learn as a practitioner over the years. 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. We should all be growing and progressing as practitioners–just... Read more

Webinar: How to Get the Most Out of your AcuGraph Package 5/5 (17)

Have you ever bought something you totally thought seemed like a good idea at the time, only to have it sit on your self and eventually get discarded? You know, like that ab exercise machine that looked so good on the infomercial? No, but seriously, we all do it. Back when I used to have satellite TV, I called the company one day to find out why my bill was so high. They said it... Read more

Acupuncture Cured Angelina Jolie’s Bell’s Palsy 5/5 (18)

Have you seen the recent article on USA Today about Angelina Jolie’s struggle with Bell’s Palsy? The most interesting part is that Angelina “credited acupuncture for a full recovery.” See the Full Article Here>> Bell’s Palsy has been a topic of interest in the acupunture world, because it’s so effective at treating the condition, if done in a timely manner. Bell’s Palsy Blog Posts Kimberly Thompson, L.Ac., has written several blog posts about Bell’s Palsy... Read more

Webinar: Seal the Deal with Auriculotherapy 5/5 (16)

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

Are you Kidding? How did that Happen? 5/5 (16)

If you look at the title of this post, you’ll see my exact response when I realized that 2017 is now over half over. HALF OVER? The thought gave me a sudden shock. Now don’t get me wrong. I know how a calendar works. But in my mind, 2017 was still new. I have plans, ideas, goals to accomplish this year, and when I realized time was half gone, I really had to stop and... Read more

AuriculoMEDICINE: Transform to Next Level Healing 5/5 (18)

Did you know there is a difference between auriculoTHERAPY and auriculoMEDICINE? I didn’t really understand this until last year, when I did training with Dr. Nogier. A couple of weeks ago I got an email from an average person who wanted to know if the Auriculotherapy Success Seminar was right for them. Here’s how the conversation went: Hello. I’m not an acupuncturist, but I want to know more about treating ears. I use pressure points... Read more

Webinar: AcuGraph – Why Does It Work? 5/5 (18)

OK, so maybe I’m kind of nerdy. I was 8 years old when I watched Star Wars the first time, and that’s when I decided to build a robot. Out of a trash can. Powered by a car battery. Just like R2-D2, right? Don’t judge. Yeah, I’ll admit I’ve always loved the engineering side of things. To tell you the truth, that’s what attracted me to acupuncture in the first place. But I also realize most... Read more
