Tinkering and creating, I suspect that anyone who's been lucky enough to have grown up in an environment that encouraged exploration, risk taking and curiosity— they've got a perspective that has them asking “why not” instead of “why.”

Figuring out how things work is fun. Even more so when you don’t take other people’s word on what is doable or not, and you go and see for yourself.

Adrian Larsen has been one of those “how’s this thing work” kind of people his whole life. That’s what led him into all kinds of interesting projects, one of which was the creation of the acugraph. It’s great when curious people push an edge and find a whole new territory to share with the rest of us.

In this conversation we’ll learn more about how the Acugraph came about, as well as how it can be used.

In This Conversation We Discuss:

  • Adrian’s electronics background
  • How acupuncture came into picture
  • Ryodoraku and the treatment of his newborn daughter 
  • Creation of AcuGraph
  • Cycles and philosophy of businesses
  • How AcuGraph Helps Practitioners
  • Acupuncture and placebo
  • How AcuGraph helps the patient and the power of instant gratification 
  • Troubleshooting and monitoring using AcuGraph
  • Owning up to our mistakes and building trust with patients, trust with patients
  • Lasers, electronic moxa stick, far-infrared frequencies and , natural jade stone

What patients want and need most is the answer to two questions: Do you know what's wrong? and Can you help? If you have convincing, clear answers to these two questions, you will be wildly successful in your practice.​​

Adrian Larsen, L.Ac, Tinkerer, Entrepreneur  

When other kids were playing baseball, I was building robots and tinkering with electronics in my parents’ basement. That’s why, when I first encountered the meridian system of acupuncture, I was immediately hooked on the idea of deciphering the energy circuitry of the human body as a basis for health and healing.

My professional career has focused on elevating acupuncture through evidence-based approaches to care and patient communication. Over the span of more than two decades I’ve searched out the best tech and tools for acupuncture, and I’ve invented a few tools of my own. It’s been an amazing journey so far and a lot of fun to be part of bringing this ancient wisdom into the 21st century.

My company, Miridia Acupuncture Technology, sells the best-of-the-best tools for great practitioners who want to take their practice to new heights. The bonus for me is that I get to teach practitioners around the world and share the tools that really make a difference.
