Acupuncture is a tried and tested holistic medical service that substantially helps people with their ongoing physical ailments and needs without the need for pharmaceutical drugs. Acupuncture clinics have become very popular businesses over the past three decades in the United States given that many medical studies do show a significant benefit to using acupuncture for selected medical issues. The barriers to entry for a new acupuncture clinic are somewhat low given that a moderate amount of education and training are needed for someone to become licensed as an acupuncturist. The startup costs associated with a new acupuncture clinic usually runs anywhere from $50,000-$250,000 depending on the location, scope, scale, and whether or not associate acupuncturist will be hired at the onset of operations. Competitive issues in most locations are somewhat minimal as there are only a limited number of acupuncture clinics with the United States. It should be noted that many allied health professionals are able to provide acupuncture services as part of their overall service infrastructure if they are licensed as a chiropractor or specialized allied health professional.

Most banks and lenders are able to provide working capital and business development loans to acupuncture clinics given that many private insurance companies do allow for some form of reimbursement for the services. If an individual acupuncturist is looking for a business loan than they need to develop a business plan. This business plan should feature a three-year profit and loss statement, cash flow analysis, balance sheet, breakeven analysis, and business ratios page that showcases to a lender or a potential funding source that the acupuncture clinic can become profitable and cash flow positive within the first year of operation. Beyond the financial model, a well-developed market analysis that includes an examination of the total population, population density, median household income, median family income, percentage of people covered under insurance, and competitors should be examined thoroughly. Any bank or financial institution is going to want to see these figures in order to render a lending decision.

Once the acupuncture clinic business plan is complete then it is time to develop the marketing plan. Here, special focus should be paid to developing ongoing referral relationships with other allied health professionals as well as medical doctors. Many doctors have taken to providing referrals to acupuncturists given the health benefits associated with this practice. Beyond referrals, it is imperative that an acupuncture clinic also maintain a moderate sized print advertising campaign. These print advertisements can be distributed among local and regional newspapers and circulars within the target market. Additionally, an online presence is needed for any acupuncture clinic. The website should showcase the credentials of the acupuncturist, hours of operation, pricing information, whether insurance is accepted, and how to obtain employment with the company. This website should also be linked to social media pages on FaceBook, Twitter, Instagram, and Google plus in order to ensure that it can be found quickly by potential patients within the target market.

An acupuncture clinic SWOT analysis should also be developed in conjunction with the business plan and marketing plan. As it relates the strengths, acupuncturists enjoy moderate barriers to entry for this industry as well as very high gross margins from their rendered services. For weaknesses, the revenues generated by most acupuncture clinics are somewhat moderate compared to other types of healthcare practices. This is not an industry where many acupuncturists go on to become extremely wealthy. For opportunities, in the event that an acupuncturist wants to expand their practice greatly than they can hire Associates that will increase the billings of the business on a monthly basis. This is one of the primary ways in which acupuncturists rapidly expand their businesses. For threats, there is really no major issue that would impact the way that these companies conduct business given that they rely heavily on patient co-pays and patient reimbursement rather than from private insurance.
