    Susan is a great teacher, who likes to teach and is more than wiling to share her knowledge, experience and downfalls in her career. She takes her time to explain the procedures. Love taking her courses.

    Glad I could add this course to my professional experience, there are so much still to learn. Cupping is wonderful, fascinating and working amazing so I am glad I could look at this system from the Susan prespective, which was interesting and very helpful.

    This was a very interesting course that I was able to directly apply to my treatments in clinic immediately after learning it. Cupping the jaw has been immensely useful for my patients!
