    Geha G.- Canada

    Very informative, straightforward, well structured course on scalp acupuncture.

    Ausra J.- United States of America

    Fascinating course! I love Dr. Robidoux! While I missed seeing her in person, what I enjoyed about this online course was being able to get such a closeup view with the camera while she corrected people's mistakes or pointed out exact locations. Learned a lot this way! Also nice to be able to pause and go back to review.

    Jessica W.- Canada

    The information in this course was very helpful in expanding my knowledge of scalp acupuncture especially in the treatment of neurological disorders.

    Robert M.- United States of America

    Robidoux's new scalp acupuncture points are immediately useful in day-to-day clinic and can be easily added to conventional treatments to enhance the overall effect.

    Anthony M.- Canada

    This course was a wonderful introduction to the New Scalp Acupuncture system. Thorough knowledge of the material by the presenter. Clear presentation and enjoyable speaker. Will definitely keep my eye out for further courses by her.

    Kristin D.- Canada

    One the best and most practical online courses I have taken. Immediately relevant in the clinic. Also, Suzanne did a great job of explaining the point location and uses.

    Angela F.- Canada

    Suzanne seems very knowledgeable and her teaching is clear. Very informative and enjoyable.

    Shirley C.- Canada

    No one teaches this information like Suzanne. I am having great results using these points and this system of scalp acupuncture.

    Andrena B.- United States

    I would recommend the course but it would be much better in person to practice She is very good

    Stephen S.- United States of America

    This is a very useful course for anyone interested in neurological acupuncture.

    Jennifer N.- Canada

    Dr.Robidoux is very thorough, knowledgable, and clear. I would recommend even more so an in-person class, but this is a very useful second best. Her wealth of knowledge is such that I would love to hear her talk about the history of Chinese Medicine for a long time.

    Amber M.- United States of America

    I found this course to be presented exceptionally well. The speaker is extremely knowledgeable and gives invaluable help so those patients that have neurological problems can be treated and regain their health. It provides hope for severely compromised patients with neurological problems.

    Margaret K.- Canada

    What a great course with very applicable knowledge to enhance your practice.

    Christian P.- Canada

    For anyone wanting to gain confidence and really understand scalp acupuncture techniques I would strongly recommend this course. Prior to courses from Suzanne I just used the acupuncture points on the head as points on the channels - these courses opened up a whole facet of treatment.

    Pamela M.- Canada

    I find all of Suzanne's courses to be exceptional because she is an exceptional scholar and practioner. She is extremely knowledgeable and confident with the material she is presenting and present with the group she is teaching. If you have only had a strictly TCM education or you want to learn something new from someone who has first hand experience with the linage being taught, she is the teacher to seek out. Highly recommended!

    Naomi M.- United States

    Dr. Robidoux is a brilliant healer and teacher. It's wonderful that she is teaching us how we can help more people. Thank you for adding more interest in my study of Scalp Acupuncture

    About Suzanne Robidoux

    Dr. Suzanne Robidoux has lived in China and Taiwan for the last 17 years studying with various masters with a focus on classics and clinical practice. She started by spending three years in the south of Taiwan to master mandarin while learning with masters. Then she moved to Nanjing and completed her Ph.D. in acupuncture at the Nanjing University of Chinese Medicine in 2007. During her doctorates, she focused her studies and research on treating neurological disorders and psychological disorders as well as severe depression. One of these masters was Dr. Lu Qian at the Neurological Hospital (direct lineage of doctor Jiao Shu Fa). During her apprenticeship with Dr. Lu, Suzanne learned the most effective ways to treat severe cases of post-stroke coma, paralysis, hemiplegia, multiple sclerosis, Meniere’s diseases and so on. Over 90% of the patients would receive cranial acupuncture with body acupuncture. The second master, Dr. Tao Kun, is famous for his needling technique and his moxibustion techniques and efficacy on post-stroke paralysis and various musculoskeletal diseases. Suzanne came to Beijing in 2007 and worked with several masters all over China to bring their life’s work to the printing press and make the knowledge available to the West. She translated and edited over 20 professional Chinese medical textbooks related to acupuncture and Chinese medicine, during which she had the chance to work with Dr. Shi Xuemin, specialist in neurological disorders and famous for getting the best results with his needling technique. In the West, he is known to be the treating doctor from Tianjin in the documentary “9000 Needles”. Suzanne is now the chief acupuncturist of the Neurological and Post-Stroke Department at the Yanda Health City in Beijing. She also works at the Suicide Prevention Center in Beijing to contribute to the benefit of society providing acupuncture treatment severe cases of depression and suicidal tendencies. On her free time she continues to research classical texts such as the Zhou yi and the Zhenjiu Dacheng as well as the Shang Han Lun and Jin Gui Yao Lue.
