About The Symposium:

Miridia Acupuncture Technology is sponsoring, for the first time ever, an Acupuncture Technology Symposium.

Acupuncture is age-old medicine, but in this ever-changing, technology-driven world, the advancements in both objective acupuncture documentation and cutting-edge treatment tools and techniques should be at the heart of every acupuncture practice.

This 3-day symposium will cover many topics of technology-based acupuncture. From measurement and analysis to treatment and results tracking, this symposium will cover it all.

Who Should Attend:

All acupuncturists, physicians, practitioners, or students wanting to learn more about any facet of acupuncture technology should attend this event.

Top 5 Reasons You Need To Be There:

Your Patients Trust Technology

Most of them will even trust it more than they trust people. Perhaps even more than they trust you.

If you're not embracing technology in your practice, you are losing the trust of your patients and an opportunity to connect with them on a deeper psychological level. At the seminar we will teach you how to use technology to create and enhance this trust connection with your patients.


Acupuncture Specific Technology Training

Much of the research and training available for technology in the medical industry is specific to medical doctors or physical therapists or others.

This symposium will be specific to acupuncturists, with direct application in acupuncture practice. What you learn here will be usable in practice on day 1!


Successful Practitioners

As an acupuncturist, you practice in a world that has odds stacked against you. Insurance is rigged, patients don't want to pay cash or commit to long treatment plans, and running a practice is just hard.

We know the answers because we do this stuff. It's a tough world out there, and if you can't make a living you can't help anyone. We can help you and we will teach how we overcome these obstacles at this symposium.


Real Education Wasn't At School

Sure, you spent years in school learning the theory of acupuncture and Chinese medicine. That schooling is designed to help you pass tests and get a license, but when you get into practice, that's when the real education begins.

This symposium isn't another guru you can chase or another theory you can study, it's designed for practical application. This is what is working right now, actually getting results in practice, and you can implement it on day 1.


Integrative Healthcare

How do you have a discussion with a medical doctor about the theories of Chinese medicine that you're using to help your patients?

There are tools and technology out there designed specifically for this, to help you communicate with other healthcare providers. Building these relationships is key for credibility and referrals.


Symposium Details:

This will be the most comprehensive training ever available for using Technology in your Acupuncture Practice.

In one weekend, go from technology novice to confident guru as you learn techniques you can apply immediately in your practice.

A Sample of What You Will Learn:

  • The difference between Meridian Balancing (aka Ryodoraku Acupuncture) and TCM Acupuncture, and why the most successful practitioners are getting the best results by changing their focus.

  • How long "computers" have been used in acupuncture diagnosis, and why the popularity is growing among patients, practitioners and schools.

  • Current, relevant research in the acupuncture industry and why you should be more confident in your profession.

  • How to use computerized meridian diagnosis to supplement your current diagnostic skill set, setting yourself apart from the average practitioner.

  • Root & Branch patient care, and why Channel Theory and Balancing makes TCM more effective, faster.

  • How to communicate with your patient using an electronic report of findings, and why this is absolutely essential for the acupuncture practice of the future.

  • When needles are NOT the best treatment option, what works better, and when to use "high-tech" treatment options to get the best results for every patient.

  • Acupoint treatment with microcurrent, laser, and vibrational therapy for difficult to treat patients, using both root and branch treatment philosophies.

  • Advanced, point detection strategies and three-dimensional treatment that leverages acupuncture "short cuts" that are only possible with technology, for the most robust and powerful treatments possible.

  • The difference between physical and electrical acupoint location, why there's a difference, and how to know you're doing it right.

  • Pro techniques for balancing the patient and the two-step strategy for immediately resolving pain.

  • Live, interactive case workups with the panel of experts.

  • Pro tips and answers to your questions during the panel discussion with the experts from diverse clinical backgrounds.

  • Most importantly, you will learn how to use technology in your practice right now to get better results.
