Although acupuncture is currently experiencing a great increase in acceptance and growth, many acupuncturists are failing to earn a living. Recent statistics suggest that nearly 9 out of 10 acupuncturists end-up in private practice but most of those are struggling to earn solid incomes. This book offers candid and comprehensive advice about what it really takes to manage a successful acupuncture practice in the West today.

Distilled from 25 years of full-time private practice this is real-world advice offered by one of the acupuncture profession's most experienced practitioners and authors. "Not strictly a clinical guide, or a business book, or a political treatise, but rather an original fusion of the most important aspects of all three, Making Acupuncture Pay should be required reading for every student of acupuncture, for any acupuncturist who's struggling to make a practice work, and well, for any acupuncturist...PERIOD!" -Brent Ottley, L.Ac. "This book should be required reading before one enrolls in acupuncture school, as each chapter addresses the fundamental concepts and realistic prospects of the graduate earning a living as an acupuncturist." -Pamela Howard, acupuncture student Matthew Bauer began his practice in 1986 immediately after obtaining his State acupuncture license and as the sole source of support for his family of four. Learning how to manage his practice by trial and error, Matthew currently sees between 75-100 patients a week. In addition to his busy practice, Matthew also became involved with acupuncture organizations and as a consultant for the insurance industry helping to pioneer acupuncture HMO plans. He is the author of The Healing Power of Acupressure and Acupuncture, which explores the Taoist roots of Chinese medicine as a means of educating the public about acupuncture's benefits. With Making Acupuncture Pay, Matthew begins his efforts to help fellow acupuncturists achieve the level of practice success he has been blessed to enjoy.

Each chapter is easily accessible with brief explanations of research designs as well as vignettes of relevant past research. The book is based on a deep understanding of acupuncture, with its inherent complexity in practice, whether based on traditional principles or more modern concepts. By incorporating a more sophisticated understanding of the field, this book details a range of strategies aiming to develop the evidence base with the utmost rigour. It is the first book on acupuncture research to take this unique view, integrating the very best of evidence-based medicine with a genuine sensitivity to the discipline of acupuncture, from its traditional and holistic roots to its more modern interpretations.
