    The course was insightful and taught me a lot about pain management and how acupressure can effectively manage it. It was enlightening to say the least. I enjoyed learning at Study365 and would be happy to recommend this course to others interested in this subject matter.

    High quality

    It was a high quality course and focused greatly on acupressure and pain management. The topic was explored in-depth and I couldn’t have asked for a better and more effective training. I certainly enhanced my knowledge on the subject.
