Ingrid K. - Canada
This is a fabulous course. I have attended live courses with Susan Johnson and there is so much information that I find it helpful to use the online course as a review. I can pause and repeat if I feel I did not get something. I can also pace myself, take a brake and return to the course refreshed.
Liane V. - United States
It is a great class - fantastic information and wonderful teacher.
Robert P. - United States
This is such a beautifully presented course. Susan is thorough and to the point with her teaching method and tells some very interesting clinical stories to relate back to the material without going off on a tangent as some other presenters can tend to do. Susan has a lovely way of really listening to questions and gives good practical advice. I have loved some of her insights and points about the role of the practitioner and very much appreciate her willingness to share the times when she has made mistakes so that we may learn from them. Thanks Susan for passing this knowledge on; it's priceless.
Savitri W. - Australia
This was a very well organized course with thought provoking lectures and lots of practical clinical information. Susan Johnson's teaching style is easy to follow and I appreciated the interweaving of specific point location videos to help clarify the material. I have been using some of the point combinations I learned in this course with good clinical success.
Mark E. - United States
I watched all of the lessons at least twice and integrated my knowledge into my busy community acupuncture practice. It has really changed the way I practice.
Donna N. - United States
