This is a one-day, Level One certification course that discusses critical interpersonal skills essential for acupuncturists to elevate their business. It takes more than needling expertise to deliver optimal treatments. To provide quality, effective care that is consistently sought out, acupuncturists must understand, embrace, and internalize the dynamics that affect their personal approach to treating patients. In this class, we will discuss how both your personal and professional self-confidence play a part in helping patients achieve their wellness goals. We will deconstruct unnecessary assumptions about patients and share tips and techniques for handling confrontations and maintaining boundaries with office staff and patients alike. Perhaps most importantly, we will delve into the importance and methods of self-presentation and projecting the right attitude and energy to elevate your business and treatment success.
As acupuncturists our primary tool is the filiform needle. We may be familiar with it as a medical device composed of sterile metal material. However, to elevate clinical efficacy and accelerate professional mastery, what the practitioner directs through the needle is vital. In other words, it is the practitioner who empowers the needle to affect the patient. To amplify this positive influence, there are particular details and subtle nuances that must be employed. Over many years of trial and error, mature acupuncturists or those who were fortunate to apprentice under a master, may gradually realize these essentials. Discouraged by mediocre results, the majority may quit long before reaching this level. Rather than remain implicit this capacity can be deliberately trained as specific skills. These start by needling with intention. In this seminar, participants will learn the elements necessary to needle with more confidence and efficiency. They will practice directly implementing self-care cultivation (Gong Fa) into their clinical practice with the goal of providing clients with better care and greater success.
