MINDBODY Exchange boosts business growth potential for Chinese medicine graduates

MINDBODY Exchange Partners with the American College of Traditional Chinese Medicine, MASSAGE MagazineSan Luis Obispo, CA, and New York, N.Y. MINDBODY’s Integrative Health Care directory, MINDBODY Exchange, has partnered with the American College of Traditional Chinese Medicine (ACTCM) as part of a collaborative mission to make complementary and alternative health care services more mainstream.

Through the new partnership with the college, which offers master and doctoral degrees in acupuncture and Oriental medicine, practicing students and graduates will now have the opportunity to become part the largest and most trusted directory of integrative health care providers, boosting their exposure to doctors, consumers and employers seeking corporate wellness solutions.

“Our partnership with ACTCM is another victory in supporting the growth and adoption of Integrative Health care into mainstream society,” said Jill Shah, senior vice president of MINDBODY Corporate Wellness. “By bringing more exposure to these recent graduates and their practices, and by making their services more accessible, we hope to facilitate the discovery and adoption of Chinese medicine at large.”

Through Exchange, ACTCM graduates will have the ability to create personalized business profiles that are credentialed and supported by a customer review feature, as well as tap into an existing base of customers. ACTCM will in turn promote MINDBODY Exchange to its current and prospective student body as a vehicle for maximizing online exposure for business growth, and bringing more consumer awareness to the Chinese medicine practice.

“We’re incredibly excited to be partnering with MINDBODY Exchange in an effort to support our students in launching their business practices,” said Michael Sano, director of student affairs and alumni relations of ACTCM. “The platform’s strong marketing and networking capabilities make it a valuable resource for our college and for the TCM field at large.”
