Course Reviews

It is a very interesting subject and is something that I'd like to continue to learn.

The videos really make this information accessible.

I thought the course was a good easy way to learn about a new skill within the parameters of acupuncture.

he teaching style would have been helped if the instructor had been a little slower and repeated the data a few times. Perhaps it suffered due to lack of hands-on and lack of repetition. I found it hard to assimilate the information.

The content of the program was nice and clear.

Material was clear, adequate, videos are excellent! ~ Yonat
