“The tuition from Michael and Paul is exceptional; the course content is in-depth and set in a friendly and encouraging learning environment. The online learning platform for all the supporting learning material is remarkable and a real credit to the course, it also offers a network platform so you can keep in touch with both tutors and fellow students.”

Kelly Richards Year One Five Element Acupuncture Diploma Student

“I’ve been very impressed with the course in general, but in particular with the e-learning platform, which is far superior to what was provided at university a few years ago!”
