WHAT IS THE ACUPUNCTURE GROWTH SYMPOSIUM?


The Acupuncture Growth Symposium is about helping YOU grow. At Miridia Technology, we focus on helping practitioners stay current with what’s ACTUALLY working in the acupuncture world.

We’re bringing in the tactical giants of the industry to give you the nitty-gritty details about what they do, day in and day out, to be some of the most successful acupuncturists out there. At the Acupuncture Growth Symposium, we’ll help you master today’s tough conditions, leverage technology for breakthrough results, and treat with total confidence.

If you’re an acupuncturist, student, or another practitioner looking to incorporate acupuncture into your practice, this is YOUR event. Welcome home.

 

WHY ATTEND?


ACTIONABLE CONTENT • TIPS FROM PEOPLE WHO ACTUALLY DO THIS STUFF • THE KEYS TO TREATING TODAY’S TOUGH CONDITIONS • INSPIRATION • NETWORKING AND FUN • HEALTHY LUNCHES • SOCIAL OPPORTUNITIES • AURICULOTHERAPY • INSIGHTS FOR TREATING EMOTIONS, PAIN, FIBROMYALGIA, AUTISM, AND MORE!

WHAT TO EXPECT


ACTIONABLE CONTENT

The Acupuncture Growth Symposium is 2 full days of applicable, actionable content and instruction from the best acupuncturists in the business. We’re bringing in the experts who run their own successful acupuncture practices, and specialize in today’s tough conditions like fibromyalgia, autism, emotional disorders and chronic pain.

These acupuncturists actually do what you do, day in and day out, and are opening their treatment playbooks to give YOU their top tips and secrets to converting their patients to their care, because of the incredible difference they make in their patients’ lives.

Don’t sit through another painful CE course. Come to the event where you’ll go home with treatment strategies and tactics that will breathe new life into your practice.

Actionable Content
Inspiration and Insight

INSPIRATION AND INSIGHT

We know it’s a pretty big commitment to come to a live training and wonder if it will be worth the travel, time away from work, etc. That’s why our TOP priority is to impart the most cutting-edge and current information about what’s working for the most successful acupuncturists in the field.

No theoretical advice or conceptual tactics here. You will leave the Acupuncture Growth Symposium with renewed energy, excitement, and a notebook full of what you can start doing in your practice the day you return home to incorporate what you learned at AcuGrowth 2019. We won’t waste your time.

SOCIAL OPPORTUNITIES AND FUN

Let us welcome you to Miridia Technology and AcuGraph’s hometown in style! Boise is a blossoming city in the northwestern United States that is attracting visitors, worldwide, for its beauty, safety, and up and coming culture and art scene.

At AcuGrowth 2019, we take time to provide social opportunities for all guests, and a chance to interact with the presenters. Enjoy coffee with Dr. Larsen and Kimberly in the mornings before class begins, and savor a delicious glass of wine and hors d'oeuvres at the complimentary Saturday night cocktail hour.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS


Q: Why should I attend the Symposium?

A: No doubt you're a great acupuncturist and you get good results, which is something to be proud of. But whether you realize it or not, you've also got a problem. The world is changing, healthcare is changing, and your patients are changing. They expect more from you than ever before, in a market that hasn’t yet realized the true value of acupuncture.

The good news is we're here to help. We've got the tools, the techniques, and the technology to take your practice where you know it can go. We’ll show you how to get better results, faster, which will help you run a busy practice filled with patients who realize the true value of what you do for them.

Additionally, 21st century patients face a myriad of diseases, disorders and problems that have become even more prevalent in the last 10 years. At the Acupuncture Growth Symposium, we’ll help you learn how to effectively treat today’s tough conditions with acupuncture, like autism, fibromyalgia, emotional disorders, chronic pain, and many more. We’re bringing in acupuncture specialists in these fields who will “open their playbook” and teach you what they do to be some of the most successful acupuncturists out there. Acupuncturists who remain stagnant and refuse to grow will be left behind as the healthcare world continues to evolve and demand evidence-based medicine.

Q: Do I have to be an acupuncturist to attend?

A: No, many of the techniques apply to other fields as well. Meridian-aware massage practitioners, chiropractors, naturopaths, physical therapists and energy workers will benefit from this information, whether or not they practice needle acupuncture.

Q: Do I have to own AcuGraph to attend?

A: No, you do not need to own AcuGraph to benefit from the Acupuncture Growth Symposium. The Friday night, extra training will focus specifically on AcuGraph, but there will be many segments that focus on other topics besides meridian graphing and analysis. We’ll be teaching an entire unit on Auriculotherapy and electroacupuncture, as well as hosting workshops for specific products, such as the Pointoselect Digital, Stimplus Pro, Rapid Release and more. Additionally, there will be Q&A sessions, social events, and the chance to interact with the best and brightest acupuncturists out there!

Q: When will the schedule and speakers be released?

A: We expect to release the full symposium schedule and speakers in February. Your best option is to book your ticket while the price is as low as it’s going to get, and check back for a complete schedule. The main topics we will be covering are auriculotherapy and electroacupuncture, the Five Elements and emotional treatments, Fibromyalgia, Autism spectrum disorders, and chronic pain, with lots of other great tips and tricks as well.

Q: Will there be CE Credits?

A: We are applying for 13 credits with NCCAOM, and California Acupuncture Board. We expect the credits will be approved before the symposium, as they have every year in the past. We will award CE credit certificates at the conclusion of the symposium on Sunday. If you are not able to stay for the entire symposium due to travel schedule, we will adjust your awarded credits accordingly and make sure you get your certificate before you leave.

Q: Why are you hosting the Symposium in Boise, Idaho? Is Boise nice? Is it safe?

A: Miridia Technology is headquartered in Boise, Idaho. We weighed the cost, and determined we could offer a better symposium at a better venue, and at a cheaper cost, in our hometown. We want to provide the opportunity to attend one of our popular live trainings to as many practitioners as we can. By hosting the event locally, we were able to significantly reduce our costs, and pass those savings on to you! Boise is an incredibly safe town, with a crime rate well below the national average. Boise is one of the fastest growing, and most popular cities in the United States right now. The mild climate, beautiful scenery, and clean downtown make it a wonderful place to visit and live. First-time visitors often comment on Boise’s vibrant culture, vitality, and energy. With an active arts and outdoor community, lively downtown filled with shops, restaurants and museums, downtown Boise is a delight for visitors of all ages. We think you will love it here!

Q: If I own AcuGraph, should I bring it with me?

A: No, we’ll have demonstration systems for use in class.

Q: What should I do about lunches during the symposium?

A: We’ve got that covered! Your admission includes lunch, snacks, coffee and tea both days. We will also have vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free lunch and snack options available for lunch each day.

Q: If I can’t make it to the symposium, is my ticket refundable?

A: If you cancel within 7 days of registering, you will be refunded 100% of the ticket price. Cancelation requests received more than 7 days after registration will be refunded 50%. Unfortunately we cannot accept any cancelations after April 1, 2019, regardless of when the original registration is completed. Cancellation requests should be made in writing to service@miridiatech.com.

Q: Will the symposium be recorded?

A: We expect to record the symposium, though we do not plan to make it available for purchase. Your best bet is to be there in person—and get all the hands-on learning.

Q: Is this just a marketing seminar?

A: No! Quite the opposite, in fact. Our goal is to teach you how to have a practice that doesn’t require extra marketing. Of course we’ll talk a bit about business and selling, but only in the course of discussing practice and treatment strategies. If you want to just study marketing, this isn’t the symposium for you.

Q: Is there a block of rooms for Symposium attendees at a discounted rate?

A: Yes. We have arranged for a block of rooms for Symposium attendees at the Hilton Garden Inn. Located 1/4 mile from the historic Owyhee Building where class will take place, the downtown Hilton Garden Inn is centrally located, within walking distance to the best restaurants, shopping, and all Boise has to offer. The hotel was completed in July 2018, and boasts beautiful, modern design, a full restaurant, bar, and guest facilities. The hotel will provide free shuttle services to and from the Boise airport, and to the classroom each day for all symposium guests. Click here to book your room at the symposium rate >>

Q: Is there an airport shuttle to the hotel and to the classroom?

A: Yes. For those who book their room at our preferred hotel, the Hilton Garden Inn Downtown Boise, a complimentary airport shuttle will be available to pick up and drop off guests at the Boise Airport. Additionally the Hilton Garden Inn will provide a complimentary shuttle pickup for all symposium guests before and after class each day. The classroom is only 1/4 mile from the hotel, so walking is also a good option.
