We all study acupuncture and Chinese medicine in the hope that we may develop into the greatest of practitioners. However, we are often under-prepared for how to set ourselves up as practitioners after graduation, or we are perplexed as to how we can take our already existing business to the next level. Today (in part 2), we speak to Rachel Marks of Oakridge Acupuncture, who talks us through a year in business and setting up a practice from home. In today's episode, we discuss the following:

  • GDPR compliance, patient consent forms and how you use your patients’ data.
  • Cancellation policy: making your terms clear; to enforce or not to enforce; confirmation and reminder emails.
  • Online booking vs. booking appointments over the phone.
  • Clinic management software; accounting, appointment scheduling, automated confirmation/reminder emails, etc.
  • Payment solutions.
  • Doing your clinic accounts and submitting your tax return.
  • The importance of maintaining boundaries when working from home: work-life vs. home-life.
  • Pitfalls to avoid during your first year in practice.
  • Lacking confidence as a new practitioner and answering difficult questions.
  • Keeping it simple.
  • Working on your own and the importance of networking.
  • The effects of Covid-19 on a home clinic.
  • Post-graduation burn-out.
