This was only a one point test,but it was very informative and interesting. I was sleepy when I took it but I couldn't pull away from it. This was valuable and I think I'll look for more of these "small but mighty" tests.

Love doing online courses at my convenience. I learned new knowledge about heartburn, digestive ailments, and the Triple burner Meridian, plus what massage techniques to use for treating clients. The acupressure points helped me recall previously learned information and makes me want to pursue this topic in more detail again. Great information! Thank you.
- Janet Ruckrigl, LMT, NCTMB
I took my time with the course. Read sections at different times so I am not sure how many hours it took me. It did not seem long at all, but I was thorough and did some online research with the triple burner since it was new to me. But your course was very thorough and very organized. I want to retain this information, so I took time and reread often. Thank you. I enjoyed this!
