Sandra Schwartz, DAOM, L.Ac.
Dr. Schwartz, author of the Acupuncture Business Success Book: The Ultimate Step-by-Step Guide to Building and Growing a Successful Acupuncture Practice, is a Doctor of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine and owner of Renewed Health LLC, her clinic in Round Rock, TX. In recognizing a trend that new acupuncturists were failing, not because of lack of healing skills, but because they did not possess the business skills of running a clinic, Dr. Schwartz decided to share her knowledge to not only help practitioners build their clinics, but to also grow their clinics to be profitable. Having a Bachelors of Business degree from the University of Texas in Austin along with decades of working as a Software Engineer in project management has given her novel insights into what works to make a business successful. Since many natural medics are similar in how they build and run their business, this book will also help chiropractors, naturopaths, physical therapists, massage therapists, and other natural medical practitioners build and grow their business.
