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!!!
Hello Paul, I enjoyed your F.E.A. course very much. The required research into anesthesia and auricular acupuncture gave me and even greater respect and interest in the subject. Its possibilities seem limitless. The use of the intradermals has given me another powerful tool to add to helping the growing requirements of our patients. I am happy to be able to offer them this natural holistic method of achieving similar results usually seen only in more medically, invasive procedures. Your support and feed-back was both positive and encouraging.Thank you very much and well done!”
I found this course amazing. Very well put together, easy to follow and assignments really helped too. I especially enjoyed the videos as I learn well from watching others so this was helpful a lot. The feedback on the assignments helped to know you were on the right track and builds confidence too.
The course was fantastic and one of the most enjoyable and worthwhile courses I have undertaken. I thoroughly enjoyed it! Paul, you are a great educator and very generous with your knowledge. Thank you so much for all your help and support! I am feeling well equipped to undertake the cosmetic acupuncture techniques on my patients.
Thank you Paul, I thoroughly enjoyed the course and have learned so much. I particularly enjoyed the practical elements and found the research subjects very interesting and enlightening. The course layout was easy to navigate and content appropriate. I’m very excited to get started with my new found skills!
Thank you for the course. I thought it was very well put together and thank you for being so quick to reply to my questions.
All I can say is thank you Paul for a fantastic course. The videos were amazing and easy to follow. I have done online courses before, and I must stress this course was the best so far. I bought your book facial enhancement acupuncture clinical use and application, again what a good book. I will use this as a reference, something I can keep going back to to help with my private practice. Again thank you for the feed backs on all the assignments, such a quick response. Again many many thanks. I would definitely recommend the course for anyone interested in cosmetic acupuncture.
Thank you so much Paul – I have thoroughly enjoyed the course. It is very well put together, informative with clear video tutorials and write ups.

Hi Paul, First I would like to thank you very much for the excellent FEA training you are offering. The content is just right, not too heavy but with all necessary details to allow fellows to start the great adventure of FEA. The videos are of excellent quality, very well explained and full of small tips for the junior FEA fellows. I really enjoyed your course. I would also like to thank you for the very prompt responses, for all your appreciations and advice. They were much appreciated! I warmly recommend your course to all acupuncturists who are looking to offer their patients a healthy way to feel good and look better. Thank you very much.
Dear Paul, Thanks a lot for the opportunity to participate in the Online Facial Acupuncture Course. In my opinion, the program of the course is structured really well. Thanks to your feedback, I’ve learned about certain professional nuances that helped me to implement my knowledge in building the protocol for facial skin rejuvenation. For me, this was one of the strongest advantages of the course. Well done Paul!
