Susan is a great teacher, who likes to teach and is more than wiling to share her knowledge, experience and downfalls in her career. She takes her time to explain the procedures. Love taking her courses.

I love Susan Johnson and the passion she has for Master Tungs Acupuncture. The material is clear, concise and well presented. I feel so fortunate as this is probably the closest most of us will get to training with a Master in our lifetime. Thank you Susan for imparting your thirty years of experience.
Wendy C. - Canada
This ancient wisdom deserves the honour of being presented as clearly and concisely as Susan Johnson is transmitting it. Sprinkled with wisdom right from the beginning, any level of practitioner, old or brand new should feel a deep sense of gratitude to have such a lovely and knowledgable guide.
