I really enjoyed the course so thank you very much.
My initial thoughts were of how would a online acupuncture course work however, I needn’t have worried because the course was really enjoyable. Using photogenic evidence for assignments was really great in that it was great feedback for myself to have a visual tool to use. I have also purchased the book which I carry with me all the time I enjoy the tips and guidance it gives me. I have no doubt that I will enrol in another course in the future. Thank you for the feedback and assistance.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
Hello Paul, thank you very much for a well structured and interesting course. This was perfect for me as I prefer to study and carry out research at my own pace. As a newly qualified practitioner I was a little apprehensive about studying on line, but found the course both comprehensive and easy to follow. I am now feeling very confident in my capabilities as a Facial Enhancement Practitioner. I would like to thank you for all your support throughout the course.
I enrolled to this on line course of Facial Enhancement acupuncture with high expectations and enthusiasm. Within the first three lessons I realized that I have chosen the correct path towards the proficiency of cosmetic acupuncture. I enjoyed leaning with clear instructions and high quality videos.The lessons were excellent, and I did assignments with great enthusiasm and fervor. Mr. Paul Adkins is a proficient teacher, with an encouraging and positive attitude towards his students. At the end of the course, all my expectations were met perfectly. Thank you Paul for your course of instructions on FEA. Your step by step approach was excellent. I would recommend this course of study for any practicing Acupuncturists who are interested in advancing their field of practice in Cosmetic Acupuncture.
Thank you so much for offering this course, enjoyed it and hope to get busy using it ASAP.
