Please Note! Due to the high volume of irritating spam and slow-down of participation here, we are no longer accepting new comments, questions, or subjects on this Forum. We are keeping all the subjects and comments for review as there is a lot of good stuff here relating to practice-building subjects. So, dig deep! Thanks to everyone who participated here but it is time to move on to bigger projects educating the public about acupuncture! Matt Bauer

We are up to over 650 Likes on this Facebook page and I wanted to welcome those newer to this resource and also give a rundown of what I am trying to accomplish with my MAP outreach efforts. My number one goal in writing Making Acupuncture Pay as well as this Page, website, and the seminars and webinars I have been presenting the last two years is to provide practical advice and logistical support for Acupuncturists trying to establish successful private practices. I am convinced that too many Acupuncturists are lacking in the common-sense basics of how to apply their healing art within a private practice setting. I don’t claim to hold the mystical key to making you a Master in diagnosis and treatment but I am someone who has learned how to make my healing services work both clinically and financially for myself and a high percentage of my patients. I do this five days a week for some 20 patients a day and have been doing so for many years. There are some basic skills needed to make this all work in a private practice setting and these tend to be the same for any population, in most all countries. My focus has been working to identify those basics and get this information out there because the more successful acupuncture practices there are the more people will be helped by this gentle form of natural healing. I can only treat so many patients myself but if I can help others put it all together and build successful practices, I will have accomplished much more than I could do alone.
