This How To Start Your Acupuncture Clinic course will give you all you need to confidently start your acupuncture clinic.

I’ve taught the Practice Management class at Colorado School of Traditional Chinese Medicine for 8 years, and this is the same material I teach them. It’s been brought to my attention that many acupuncturists are not getting this education, so I’ve made it available for you here. Because you need this. And I want you to succeed.

How to start acupuncture clinic

Here’s what’s inside:

Your mindset, overall vision & longterm goals

We want you to create an acupuncture clinic that nurtures and aligns with YOU, your priorities, values, dreams and goals. So let's get crystal clear on those first.

Your foundations - name, brand, & legal stuff

You'll be able to make confident, educated decisions about choosing your business name, your business structure (LLC vs S corp vs sole proprietor), insurance, getting licensed, and more.

Your finances, pricing, revenue & patient goals

I'll share all the info about my start up and recurring costs, help you estimate your costs and set your prices, so you can see how many patients you'll need to see to live the life you want.

Designing and running your clinic

You'll know what to look for in an office space, how to negotiate a lease, systems for running your clinic smoothly, and how to communicate with patients.

Your paperwork - examples you can steal

You'll get examples of Intake Forms, privacy forms, consent forms, disclosure forms and more.

Your marketing - how to get patients

You'll know how to get your first 10 patients in the door, 17 of my favorite ways to attract patients, plus a script for exactly what to say. We'll cover building a website and using the internet to build your practice.

Your plan - a checklist & timeline

This is the to-do list I made for myself when I was starting out. Breaking all the things that need to get done down into bite-sized chunks to make it feel totally doable and less overwhelming.
