Thank you and welcome to the Hub of Paediatric Acupuncture (HOPA)
A very warm welcome and thank you for signing up for a Qi Membership.
This will mean that parents of children who can benefit from your skilled treatments will now be able to find you on the HOPA paediatric practitioner directory. If you haven’t already, you can create your listing now. Just click the button below.
Please remember that you will need to choose which listing is suitable for you, depending on your training:
+ Paediatric Acupuncture Specialist – this is for practitioners who have had a minimum of 60 hours post-graduate paediatric training. You will be asked to email proof of this when you write your directory listing.
+ No-needle practitioner – this is for practitioners who have done post-graduate training in no-needle techniques for children, e.g paediatric tui na, shonishin or low-level laser therapy. You will be asked to email proof of this when you write your directory listing.
Once you have completed the details, your HOPA directory listing will be approved within the next 48 hours, when we have had a chance to check your qualifications.
If at any point your details change or you want to update your listing, you can log in to your account and update it.
Your Qi Membership includes priority access to the Ming Mentoring sessions. This means you’ll be among the first to receive updates about upcoming sessions and ticket releases.
Be sure to check out the latest HOPA Vodcast episode.
You’re invited to join the HOPA Facebook community group. This is a thriving space for practitioners who treat children to share knowledge, feel connected and supported. I’d love for you to join us.
