Hi acupuncture friends!
It’s been awhile since we’ve talked! I’m finally back from vacation in Cambodia, Laos and Thailand. What an experience!
I’m a firm believer in taking time off so you can reconnect with your creativity. I had some plenty of time for brainstorming and came up with some exciting ideas for 2018 that I can’t wait to share with you.
Thank you for the crazy enthusiasm about my new Facebook Ads course that was released on Black Friday, by the way!
I was getting lots of questions from acupuncturists about why their Facebook Ads weren’t working: why Facebook would deny their ads for publication (!), why they weren’t getting a good ROI on their ads, how to navigate Ads Manager, etc.
I wanted to answer those questions and share my screen to help take the frustration out of Facebook Ads. So far the response to the course has been phenomenal!
Overall, 26 new students joined my online marketing courses in November and are happily chugging away through the step-by-step video tutorials and worksheets. I love seeing their progress!
I have some really exciting and educational interviews planned for you in 2018, including an introduction to a brand new acupuncture business success podcast called The Golden Cabinet.
In 2018 we’re going to get even deeper into the nitty-gritty of how to build a successful practice. I might even be offering group coaching for the first time, you guys… 😲 keep your eyes peeled for that!
For this week, as we lead up to the holidays, I thought we’d keep it light and fun.
Here are some of my favorite fun-and-funky acupuncture-themed gifts. These make a great surprise for your favorite acupuncturist… including yourself! 😉
Share this post with your family to let them know what you want for Christmas… there’s still time for holiday shipping!
9 Unexpected Gifts for Your Favorite Acupuncturist:
1. Best Acupuncture Mug of All Time:
You guys, this mug is giving me life right now 😂 I just can’t get over how funny (and accurate) it is! Toss in some peppermint mini-marshmallows and extra dark chocolate Mayan cocoa mix and you’re all set!
2. Acupuncturist Superhero T-Shirt
This comes in other colors, too. Let your favorite acupuncturist, acu classmate, or acu professor know how much you appreciate them!
These are ridiculously fun! I love when patients tell me about the great results they’ve experienced with reflexology, and then we get to talk about the similarities between reflexology and Chinese medicine. Makes a great gift for patients, too!
4. Ridiculous acupressure slippers
I can’t get over how goofy these look… but at the same time I’m obsessed! All those magical pressure points massaging my feet? Yes, please!
5. Acupuncture Art Prints
Framed, on canvas, or all by themselves… these gorgeous professional photos of acupuncture treatments are perfect for your home or office. ❤️❤️❤️
6. Acupuncture World Domination T-Shirt
Fun, super-cute t-shirts that make a great conversation starter about your practice. These are so soft!
7. Fascinating reading for cozy winter evenings
This one has been on my list for awhile. Looking forward to finally reading it over my holiday break. Have you read it yet? I have a feeling it’s going to be a bit controversial… which means I’ll LOVE it!
8. Passion Planner
For acupuncturists with serious 2018 #goals, the Passion Planner is your new best friend. I had one of these last year and wow – it helped me get organized in a serious, step-by-step way that I couldn’t have done on my own.
Passion Planners are especially great for defining how you want your practice to look in 2018, and organizing/scheduling all of the steps to get there. Highly recommended!
(Other favorite planners include: InnerGuide Motivation & Success Planner.)
9. Acupuncture Art with a Sense of Humor
Acupuncture: A Jab Well Done Printable Art from Footnotes Studios (Etsy)
Love it! I never, ever get tired of acupuncture puns, do you? They always make me grin.
Hope you loved this list of unique acupuncture gifts!

Until next week,
