Why the Name Change? 5/5 (55)

From Humble Beginnings  Today is a day of humble reflection as I remember the story of Miridia Technology.  When this company began over 15 years ago, it had a single employee—who didn’t even know that he was an employee (yet). I was still a student and had just been introduced to Ryodoraku acupuncture. I loved the idea of objective evidence of Qi balance, but I noticed a gap—something was missing. The pencil-and-paper approach I was taught... Read more

The Pointoselect Digital: My New Favorite Auriculotherapy Tool 4.98/5 (61)

Some things have changed in my clinic for the BETTER. Does it mean that things were BAD before? Absolutely not. I did the best I could, given the resources I had at the time… Then I did better, because I could! You’ve heard people use the old adage “back in my day”. I use it all the time with my kids! We never flew on airplanes. Our vacations involved a road trip, an ice chest, and... Read more

Acupuncture for Pain Relief: Qi and Blood Stagnation Tips 4.94/5 (70)

Pain is the number one chief complaint in any acupuncture clinic. Why is that? There is a traditional Chinese saying which states: “If there is free flow, there is no pain. If there is pain, there is no free flow.” Free flow relates to movement of qi and blood, which move together. If qi and blood are not moving at optimum capacity, symptoms occur. Pain is an obvious side effect of qi and blood stagnation.... Read more

Upcoming AcuGraph Training in Europe! 5/5 (55)

I’ve heard Amsterdam is LOVELY in September. And I’d like to see you there! Let me explain what I mean ?

GDPR/Patient Data Protection Changes in AcuGraph 5/5 (60)

This blog post contains important of information. Please read the entire post to fully understand the changes incorporated into AcuGraph. As data privacy has become increasingly important, new government regulations concerning patient data protection have mandated changes in the AcuGraph software. Perhaps you’ve heard of the European Union’s new GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation), as well as updates to U.S. HIPAA regulations concerning electronic communication with patients.

Add Another AcuGraph Probe for Best Results! 5/5 (57)

I get asked all the time: “What if I need AcuGraph in more than one treatment room?” And it’s a great question! So many practitioners run multiple rooms at the same time, and it’s never convenient to carry your AcuGraph back and forth between rooms all day! That’s why AcuGraph 5 has built-in support for multiple computers, all sharing the same patient data. Need AcuGraph on 2, 3, or even 10 computers? No problem! Your... Read more

So what’s the difference, you say?  That’s a great question! And it’s got two answers. Answer #1: The first answer is simple. As far as our users can tell, there is no difference. And that’s what’s so great! We’ve completely duplicated the sound, sensitivity, reliability, function, and rock-solid... Read more

The Acupuncture Growth Symposium was a HUGE success!

Recap: Acupuncture Growth Symposium 2018 4.93/5 (72)

Wow, what an absolutely amazing weekend! My staff and I just got back from San Diego, California, where we hosted the Acupuncture Growth Symposium. We had a wonderful time bonding with each other, and spending three days with some of our incredible customers, and friends. A lot of our practitioners weren’t able to make the trip, so hopefully this blog post gives you a taste of the excitement we’re STILL feeling! My Favorite Part I’ll... Read more

Over 25 NEW Points and Areas Added to Auriculo Wall Chart 5/5 (60)
