When it comes to running your own acupuncture clinic, there are a million things to do.

I’m an acupuncturist & herbalist, I’ve been running my acupuncture clinic in Denver, Colorado for 9 years. I’ve also been teaching business to acupuncturists for 9 years at Colorado School of Traditional Chinese Medicine and I take one day off a week from my practice to teach and support acupuncturists.

I believe in the power of acupuncture, that being self-employed is the best self-help tool around, in showing up even when it’s scary, in the power of vulnerability and honesty, in done over perfect, and in finding YOUR best way to connect and grow your patient base.

But I’m guessing, dear acupuncturist, that you’ve got a lot on your plate. Tasks for your patients, your records, and your accountant, plus marketing tasks like social media that you think you should be doing, tasks someone else said you must do. If you look at your to-do list every morning and wonder where the heck to start, I don’t blame you!

After growing a busy clinic, creating an online fertility program, and teaching hundreds of acupuncturists how to start and grow their clinics, I’ve learned a few things about where people get stuck/stalled/stressed out and how to get them growing again. I’ve also been there myself.

So how did I end up teaching marketing for acupuncturists?

You see, back in 2011, I graduated from Southwest Acupuncture College and was following my passion to become an acupuncturist. I started my own clinic, The Point Acupuncture & Holistic Medicine, LLC.

I had no clue what I was doing or how to grow a business. I thought that so many people could benefit from acupuncture, that it wouldn’t need to be “marketed”. But then I opened my doors and…. crickets. Where is everybody, I wondered! So I tried what I thought was “marketing” and…. still, crickets. It was a waste of money, which was scarce at the time. I was deflated.

So I decided rather begrudgingly that I better learn something about “marketing” and picked up some books. To my surprise, I learned that good marketing is soulful, authentic, inspired, and in alignment. It challenged me to express myself with more empathy, honesty, and fearlessness. It asked me to rise up, share what I knew to be true, and step into my confidence.

Learning effective and heart-centered marketing has been surprisingly empowering.

And I am so grateful to be here, teaching you how to grow your acupuncture practice!

I love my job. I love my patients. I love my associates. I love our medicine. I love making the world a better place one healthy & happy patient at a time. When I look at my calendar chock-full of their names, I feel so lucky and grateful.

Not only is the financial security fantastic, but my lifestyle has dramatically changed. No longer was I wondering where my next patient would come from, worried about how I’d be able to pay myself or pay off student loan debt, or insecure about my medicine and skills. Suddenly I was able to stop worrying or scrambling, trust that patients would flow, and experience a confidence and way of life that I did not know was possible for me.

That’s when I knew that I wanted to be teaching these marketing skills to other acupuncturists.

Why, you ask?

Because I know our medicine is needed by so many people, and marketing (and mindfully sharing the key stories we want people to understand about acupuncture) is key to helping acupuncturists reach and help those people. It's also the key to help themselves access a meaningful life of security, confidence, and growth. I can’t think of anything else I’d rather spend my time doing than helping more people to help more people :o).

My belief is that you are amazing, that the world needs you to rise up and step into your confidence. I've created, videos, articles, and classes that help you grow your practice, help more patients, make more money, live your purpose, and make your life easier.

I want your practice to prosper. Your patients to love you. And your life to thrive. That is all.

My job is to help you understand and implement the key steps and strategies, adapt it so that it aligns with yourself, and feel the ease and confidence to finally see things GROW.

I’ve taught the business class to acupuncture students for more than eight years. I’ve had the pleasure to serve hundreds of acupuncturists to build clinics based on their special gifts, passions, and skills.

I also know very well how the single business class you get in acupuncture school is just not enough. When this is your livelihood.. this is your calling.. this is our medicine.. this is peoples’ health and happiness…. at stake. It deserves so much more than 15 weeks of class to help prepare you for this huge and noble calling.

That’s why I’ve taken it into my own hands and created college-level trainings for acupuncturists to master the business side of their healing trade. And am making it widely available and affordable for you.

I create one-of-a-kind transformational and educational experiences for acupuncturists who want to learn my heart-centered, simple and effective strategies to help their clinic thrive. And I make it all affordable, because c’mon… the people who need it the most can’t afford huge ticket prices.


I think to “prosper” is a feeling of fulfillment, peace, and ease, living your purpose, making a difference, and having the income, freedom, and time to do what you love…

My intention is for Acuprosper to be a virtual oasis, with practical tools and community of support.

I teach acupuncturists how to use heart-centered business strategies to add meaning, money, and growth into their lives. I do this through my transformational and educational experiences:


Start Your Acupuncture Clinic
