Jade E. - United States
Extremely relevant information, well based on a lot of clinical experience, explained cogently with great supporting illustrations.
Dan L. - United States
A great presentation on a common ailment that is difficult to treat if you rely on primary meridian points.

Excellent course, lots of useful and immediately applicable information!

As a bodyworker, the techniques in these videos are extremely easy for me to understand and immediately integrate in to my practice.

This was a comprehensive look at the increasingly common clinical presentation of greater trochanteric bursitis. Whitfield Reaves' modern perspective on what appears to be a symptom of modern inactivity adds to our understanding of orthopedic acupuncture.

It's a pleasure to hear a teacher who is not only highly experienced and knowledgeable, but a highly skilled presenter as well. Just prior to listening to Dr. Reaves webinar, I had taken another online CE course. The other course was chaotically presented, which detracted from some good content. Thanks, I needed to see something done the way it should be!
