I first met Caroline and Bryan at a marketing event and I hired them almost immediately because I knew they could help me grow my acupuncture practice.  Over the years, I had become disillusioned with my acupuncture practice due to inconsistent revenue and inconsistent clients.  I struggled because no matter how hard I worked or how much I believed in Oriental Medicine and its benefits, it seemed like I could never really convey that message to my clients in a convincing enough way for them to make the financial commitment necessary to be well.

I was frustrated with the business model and structure I had been taught, and was convinced that all acupuncturists were destined to be poor (except a few elite, of which I was not a part).  Because of that, I was actually at the marketing event where I met Bryan and Caroline, to pursue another income stream.

But working with Caroline and Bryan and taking their Patient Attraction System Course is the best thing I could have ever done!  After 3 weeks of working with them, my income and clients doubled.  I raised my rates.  I feel better about myself and the service I offer to my clients.  Now, after about 6 weeks, my clients and income have tripled and I haven’t even implemented everything they’ve taught me yet!

What I like most about working with Caroline and Bryan is that they have given me the tools to communicate the value of Oriental Medicine to current and prospective clients in a way that clients are happy to commit to the multiple treatments required to really make a difference in their health.  I don’t have to sell anything.  My clients are literally self-selecting!  This in turn has rekindled my enthusiasm and love for acupuncture and Oriental Medicine and increased my self-confidence and joy at work drastically.

I have spent literally thousands of dollars on marketing and business classes over the last few years and so I was a little skeptical of their program at first because while the information I’ve learned is great, I haven’t been too successful at applying it to my acupuncture business.  Honestly, I didn’t think Caroline and Bryan were going to teach me anything new.  (I’ve already learned about mindset, and money consciousness, online marketing, websites, etc…)  In the past I’ve been inspired by testimonials that claimed to have earned their investment back pretty quickly, only to become jaded by multiple disappointments when I didn’t have the same experience after signing up for the same program.

This time is different!  I have made back the money I invested with Caroline and Bryan over 3 times in just a few short weeks, and I haven’t even fully implemented everything they’ve shared.  I think the difference is their work is specifically geared to acupuncturists and it’s not just marketing or positioning they’re teaching.  They’re sharing a whole new way of interacting with your clients in a very genuine, authentic, and honest way that establishes long term relationships and lifetime referrals.  They have years of practical and clinical experience to draw upon whenever I have a question or need some advice.  So far, everything they’ve told me to do has worked.  Their ideas are fresh and new, and unlike anything I’ve ever thought to do.  They are totally genius!

I highly recommend Caroline and Bryan to any acupuncturist who is feeling burnt out about their practice, feels overworked and underpaid, or are looking for a steady stream of compliant clients who are happy to pay.  Thank you Caroline and Bryan–it’s the best money I’ve ever spent, and I would happily do it again!

The field of Chinese medicine has many academic experts, however there is a paucity of true CLINICAL experts, those who have seen large patient volumes and have put the theoretical aspects of this medicine to the test. Caroline and Bryan have the long experience and clinical success needed to guide our field out of obscurity and into it’s rightful position as a well respected pillar of the medical community.

They are experts in efficiency and effective business structuring and management and have put countless hours and financial resources into developing what works and what delivers.

Consulting with Caroline and Bryan immediately allowed me to correct errors in my business structure, laying the ground work for an incredibly successful practice. I give Caroline and Bryan my highest recommendation.
