What You’ll Learn: In this course from our 2017 Acupuncture Technology Symposium, Dr. Kimberly Thompson teaches practitioners about the power of expert communication. She’ll share tips on explaining acupuncture and Chinese Medicine to patients in a way that will fit their medical paradigm, while still opening their minds to alternative treatments. She’ll share a paradigm shift about patient communication that will empower you and your patients to better understand Chinese Medicine and the reality of the acupuncture meridians. Finally, you’ll see practical examples of intake, diagnosis and treatment that you can take back to your clinic and implement for immediate results. If you’re hoping to learn more about patient education, patient communication, and real clinical implementation, this is the course for you.
