Here’s My Free Acupuncture Business Plan!

Acupuncture Business Plan: How We Secured Funds to Build the Acupuncture Practice of Our Dreams

My Free Acupuncture Business Plan Details How We Secured Funds to Build the Acupuncture Practice of Our Dreams

When I wrote my Acupuncture Business Plan there were not any “templates” out there for me to follow, so it was a ton of work.  I would love to save you some of the struggle I went through by giving you my actual Acupuncture Business Plan that I used to secure a business loan in 2005.

But there’s a catch.

This business plan has some of my actual financial data and market research. And I do not want it floating around the Internet willy nilly.

I only want those acupuncturists who are serious about their business to get a hold of it. That is why I decided to make my Acupuncture Business Plan free, but only to those who purchase my ebook, “Complementary and Alternative Marketing”.

Go to to learn more.

Ever since I posted on my Insights-For-Acupuncturists Blog that I wrote a real business plan in 2005 to secure a bank loan, I have been inundated with requests asking where to go to get ahold of my plan.

The truth is, I have already made my acupuncture business plan available to a select few, simply because I needed to see if it was going to be helpful to students, graduates, and other acupuncturists.  Well… I got my answer!

So in response to your requests and feedback, let me explain where I am coming from and what I am willing to do…

You probably already noticed that about HALF of the “10 Big Mistakes I Made Opening My Acupuncture Practice” could have been avoided if I had written a business plan.  It has been frustrating to have had to learn how to run a business the hard way.  I would love to save you the frustration, not to mention wasted money and time, that I experienced.

Also, it concerns me that I have heard from experienced acupuncturists that they too have made these exact same mistakes!  It is time to put an end to these common errors and change the way we go about setting up our acupuncture practices.

So I have decided to do something that no one has ever done before…

I am releasing my actual acupuncture business plan that my husband and I wrote to secure funds from our bank and through the Small Business Administration (SBA) to purchase, what has become, the acupuncture clinic of our dreams.  What’s more is…

I want to give you my acupuncture business plan absolutely free!  But hold on… there IS a catch.  (Read on.)

This is a 35-page document that includes our:

  • Executive Summary
  • Acupuncture Industry Analysis
  • Acupuncture Market Research
  • Acupuncture Market Statistics
  • Financial Projections
  • Risk Analysis
  • And all the other key components of a properly written acupuncture business plan.

Plus I added a detailed Introduction and Epilogue to give you an insider’s view of how we actually wrote the plan.

This is really a very valuable document and I think I am going to sell it at some point. But right now, for a limited time, I have decided to include it as a Special Unadvertised Bonus with every purchase of my ebook, “Complementary and Alternative Marketing: How to Attract New Patients, Build Your Practice, and Earn Passive Income With Your Acupuncture Website”.

Use Your Acupuncture Website to See You Through Tough Economic Times

Tough Economic Times

Tough Economic Times

I cannot imagine what it must feel like to be graduating from an acupuncture school at this time in our history. With the economy as terrible as it is, it must feel daunting for new graduates to be stepping out into the business world with high hopes to make a living, develop a career, and build a successful business.

As difficult as the economy is right now, the time has never been better for those who are experts in natural health and wellness to share their expert knowledge and provide their skilled services to help people enjoy health and longevity. Just read Paul Zane Pilzner’s, “The New Wellness Revolution” and you will learn that “the next trillion dollar industry” is not technology, but rather health information, products, and services.

As an acupuncturist and knowledgeable practitioner of Oriental medicine, you have the ability to take advantage of this demand. However, you must position yourself in such a way that others regard you, your education, and your skills as credible and worthy of their attention.

The millions of people that are searching the Internet every day for help with chronic symptoms and debilitating diseases are desperate for natural alternatives and an approach that is comprehensive.

All acupuncturists have an obligation (in my humble opinion) to get the word out that Chinese medicine is effective! The easiest way to accomplish this is by creating a website for your acupuncture clinic.

For the introverted practitioner who does not see him or herself standing in front of crowds giving talks and “selling” their services, or joining different businesses networking groups, a website is a perfect solution.

Recently, I had the pleasure of talking about acupuncture website marketing to the Acupuncture Practice Management class at Bastyr University, located just outside of Seattle, Washington. It is always a pleasure for me to talk with students and watch the “light bulb” go ON when they realize they have a tool right at their fingertips (literally) that can easily and effectively market their acupuncture practice.

The tool of course, is their acupuncture clinic website. But not just any website. As I say over and over in my consultations, seminars, and Complementary and Alternative Marketing ebook, you must have a properly constructed website.

Don’t worry… all that means is you need a few features within your website that are noticed by the search engines (like Google, Yahoo, Ask, and Live). And you need some key components that attract the right kind of people to your website so you can fill your practice and develop your site as a resource for passive income.

I explain in great detail how you can accomplish this in my new ebook, “Complementary and Alternative Marketing”. You can read more about the ebook and why I wrote it HERE.

I want all acupuncturists to know, even in these challenging economic times, there is hope!
