I enjoyed the course, thanks, very informative and enjoyable.
Dear Paul. I really enjoyed the course. Its great that you had to feel no pressure in finishing within a time limit… When starting up my next season I feel confident to start promoting this type of treatment in my clinic. Then I have had a lot of time to practice which is important to me.
I’ve really enjoyed working through the programme and I’ve definitely gained a lot from it both on theoretical and practical levels.
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 was initially sceptical about signing up to an e learning course but this soon proved unfounded. There was plenty of support and guidance through phone contact, emails and video links, and the assessment process was very thorough giving great feedback on aspects of both theory and practical submissions. I would advise anyone with a good working knowledge of acupuncture to consider expanding their practice through this course, it has already seen referrals to my clinic rise on the verbal recommendation of satisfied customers.
May I say what a fantastic course, packed full of information!!
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
Thoroughly enjoyed studying Facial Enhancement Acupuncture. Paul & Stacey are both great at responding quickly to any queries you may have as well as feedback on assignments. I’d definitley recommend this course to any practitioner, its a very enjoyable creative treatment to give.
I have enjoyed the course, thank you Paul. Although having done a course before with Virginia Doran which was great. Due to lack of use of that information this was a lovely refresher for me. I felt your amount of contact and the speed of you getting things marked was better than advertised. I felt a flow to the course, it was easy to follow and I found the treatments were put in at appropriate times, so that you didn’t get too far ahead without Practicing and seeing how that practice felt.
I am having good results, and enjoying this very much. Just emailed the link to my friend to join the online course, lets hope she does.
