The results of a recent acupuncture practitioner survey have just been released and they are worth paying attention to.  “The Information World of Acupuncturists” is a video presentation (below) that explains the purpose of the survey and why the data collected is important for your acupuncture practice.  Here’s just a small sample of what you will learn:

  • Where do acupuncture practitioners go to get their information? (You might be surprised.  I know I was!)
  • What is the primary source of new patients for acupuncturists? (You’ll love this!)
  • Who do acupuncturists turn to when they need help with difficult patients? (Some things never change. And that’s a GOOD thing!)
  • How is the acupuncture profession being integrated into mainstream health care? (We’ve come a long way, baby!)
All of these questions and many others are answered in this EXCELLENT presentation by Lisa Tegethoff, Jack Falk, Kathy Mar and Jessica Bottomly.

They surveyed a number of acupuncture practitioners from the Oregon College of Oriental Medicine (OCOM),the Seattle Institute of Oriental Medicine (SIOM), and the Seattle Healing Arts Center (SHAC) as well as a number of individual acupuncture practitioners.

In 2007 there were approximately 3.1 million adults and 150,000 children seeking acupuncture treatment and these numbers are growing.  With an estimated 20,000 licensed acupuncturists in the U.S. are you positioned to treat your share of the population who wants your services?
