    Effective training

    The training was effective and presented well. The instructions were clear and the tutor made the course engaging and rather enjoyable. While the content was serious, it was still light and to the point. I want to work as an acupressure therapist, and I know this course will come in useful to me.

    Superb instructor

    The instructor was excellent and knew a lot on the subject. It was not only just the information that he provided, but also facts that necessarily don’t come with a training. I was thoroughly impressed by his standard and understanding. I hope to continue learning on acupressure at Study365.

    Well structured

    The course was well structured. It was in-depth but simplified to make it easier to understand the complex parts of the training. As someone who was new to all this, I found this method of learning rather effective.
