Five Pillars Practice Management


with Elyse Tera  


Take your practice to the next level! 


Now that youíve been out in the field for a few years, itís time to increase your income in a sustainable and ethical manner. 



This 15-hour course will provide acupuncturists, TCM practitioners and other holistic providers with tools to build financially successful practices while maintaining a strong ethical core.  Using the paradigm of the Five Pillars, we can create a manageable framework in which to live, practice, and build.   


You will learn how to: 


  • Increase and maintain your patient base

  • Communicate clearly with patients and teach them how to comply with treatment plans

  • Organize your time more efficiently so you can treat more patients.


We will also unpack the big bugaboo that prevents many acupuncturists from being financially solvent:  How we value our own labour, and how that influences the exchange of services for income. 




Elyse Tera



Elyse Tera has been practicing Chinese Medicine for over twenty years.  Beginning in 1994 in Montreal as a shiatsu therapist with a focus on Chinese Injury Medicine, Elyse continued her studies at the prestigious New England School of Acupuncture, where she specialized in Classical and Five-element styles, and graduated in 2000 with additional certification in Hari (Toyo Hari) and the Balance Method (Distal point acupuncture). 


Elyse has taught shiatsu, tui na, meditation, 5-Element and TCM Foundation theory in schools and colleges in Montreal, Ottawa, and across the United States.  Elyse recently moved back to Toronto after building a quarter-million-dollar practice in Arizona that saw over 100 patient-visits a week.


Elyse is passionate about acupuncture and TCM, and believes that thereís no reason every acupuncturist who wants to canít have a six-figure clinic, and can, with the right tools, build a successful, sustainable, and ethical practice.  


Elyse developed the Five Pillars Practice Management program to help other acupuncturists reach their financial and practice goals, and looks forward to sharing this program with others.
