In summery Paul’s teaching of this subject is refreshing, motivational and insightful. In the absence of practical learning in a taught workshop, the expert way the online course was structured and taught made learning interesting and the information provided logical and easy to understand. I feel the assignments and tests complemented the course and served to consolidate the taught theory well. Lastly it has served to inspire me to go and offer facial acupuncture as a service that I know can make a positive difference! Thoroughly recommended.
Paul, it’s been a true pleasure learning cosmetic acupuncture with you. You are always available to answer my questions and it’s wonderful to know that even though I’m taking an online course, that an instructor makes the effort to respond to students right away. That means so much to me and I would highly recomend this course to all my colleagues. I’m a new acupuncturist and have not had much experience needling facial points. Paul does a fantastic job breaking down the material into such a way that it is easy to learn. I also have just opened my own practice and have found that it is impossible right now for me to get away for a 2-3 day course. Paul’s course allows you to work at your own pace, which is perfect for someone who has work and home obligations. It was a true pleasure and I can’t wait to share my new skills with my clients!
I have really enjoyed the course and the way it was presented. I had already read your book on the topic and the course with the videos was a great way to fully understand the way of FEA treatment.
May I say what a fantastic course, packed full of information!!
Thanks so much, this has been a very wonderful learning experience.
Hi Paul, just to say thanks so much for a fantastic course. Your support along the way has been really helpful and your feedback invaluable, can’t believe how much I’ve absorbed & how confident I feel already, even in my normal acupuncture practice I feel more confident treating facial conditions e.g. sinusitis, migraines etc. Loved the pace of this course and the way it was presented, the results so far are fantastic (and not just on a superficial level), so very encouraging, I’m keen to get started.
I thought your course was well organized and very informative. I found the videos to be very helpful in terms of putting what was written into practice and seeing the rhythm with which you work.
Hi Paul, Many thanks for you kind comments following module submissions while completing the course. You know, this is the third course I’ve done regarding Cosmetic Acupuncture, and I have thoroughly enjoyed it. It’s more structured and detailed; more comprehensive in terms of treatment, and with invaluable continuously available positive support if required. Well done to you Paul, and every success for the future.
Thank you Paul, have thoroughly enjoyed the course, opening new avenues. …looking forward to incorporating this unique service to my local community. Fantastic format that pushes you to the next level, thank you so much for the opportunity and the positive feedback. Will hopefully attend a workshop in the future to consolidate skills. Cheers, Jamie
Many thanks for this course Paul. It is more than difficult enough to complete a 3 year degree when you have young children, let alone complete further training. The online course fits perfectly into my busy schedule of Acupuncturist and full-time Mum. With the TCM training I gained during my Degree at Lincoln University, this course was straight forward and easy to follow – it was purely the use of intra-dermal needles which I needed guidance on – and the video which supports this course is excellent for this purpose. Great assignments to get you thinking about what you are learning, along with nice, straight forward tests at the end of each unit, to ensure you have really taken notice of what you have been doing and learning about. Many thanks for having this course as an online option. It really has helped me to fulfill my dream of learning this protocol while still continuing my everyday life – and setting up my business too!!!
