    What People Are Saying

    I've been in practice for around 20 years with a good clientele. Not only am I learning new theory and techniques, but more patients have been reporting stronger relief from pain and other conditions. This will make you a better acupuncturist.

    Clayton W.- Canada

    This course was well organized and clear and provided an immense amount of useful information in a short amount of time. The videos were extremely helpful.

    Sonya W.- United States of America

    This is a great course in learning to find motor entry points, safe needle depth along with what nerves supply those tissues. Clear instructions from instructor, Cadaver lab, demo videos and slides help support the learning process. Includes indications and application of these motor points. I love being able to access these videos any time. The videos are broken down and labeled into different body compartments so it’s easy to find the sections you want to watch for review. I highly recommend.
