[svpVideo v=1]Physician Training Option #1

MRA 5-Day “One-on-One” Training & Certification

To accommodate the busy schedules of physicians wanting to integrate modern scientific acupuncture into their medical practice, MARIA founder and president, Dr. Lupo T. Carlota is offering a unique five-day “one-on-one” MRA training & certification program in Memphis, TN.

The MRA One-on-One Program runs Saturday through Wednesday and is personally taught by Dr. Carlota. Here you have the same great curricula found in theMRA Seminar and Preceptorship, taught by the same master teacher, plus the advantage of seeing how we use MRA Therapy to treat actual patients inside a working MRA Clinic.

This one-on-one training and mentoring opportunity with Dr. Carlota is expected to fill quickly. Available dates are based on a first-come, first-served basis. Early discount registration rates are available for physicians who schedule training dates at least 30 days in advance.

Physician Training Option #2

Step 1: Attend the MRA 2-Day Seminar

This 2-day Seminar is a foundation course on the science and practice of acupuncture. It fully covers fundamental principles, new discoveries, and the very latest clinical advances in the field.


Optimum quality care for patients needs updates on recently developed techniques, technology, methods of treatment, and changes in health care delivery systems. For example, the use of a scientific, yet simplified approach, compared to the complexities involved in the study and practice of classical acupuncture.

MARIA (Medical Acupuncture Research Institute of America, Inc.) fully devotes its resources to impart this knowledge to medical providers. Especially those in primary care, so they can use it in treating chronic pain disorders, and many other conditions largely unresponsive to conventional medicine.

The faculty is a leading authority on modern scientific acupuncture. more on next page…(FACULTY)

Step 2: Attend the MRA 3-Day Preceptorship

After completing the MRA 2-Day Seminar (or attending the MRA World Congress) eligible physicians can go right into the 3-Day hands-on MRA Preceptorship.

Combined, these two courses complete the physician training requirements for the MRA 5-Day Training & Certification Program. Enrollment fees for the MRA Seminar, World Congress and Preceptorship are separate. 


The 3-day hands-on advanced training is held right after every MRA Seminar. This separate, intensively supervised workshop thoroughly prepares you to start using acupuncture—the moment you get back to your office.

Here you are guided step-by-step towards mastery of the simplified skills. And the key points that work effectively against pain and disease.

You get the finest education and training in the use of scientific acupuncture—in minimum time.

The new knowledge and effective skills you learn here can be put to use immediately.

Completion of this fully certified program could be a positive step for you to take as a doctor. As you consider the benefits of adding MRA to your practice, we are here to help answer your questions.
