    Extensive course

    The course in acupressure – Yin Meridians was vastly extensive. The content was expansive and offered a wealth of information that even surprised me. I had some prior knowledge on this, but what I learned through this training was exactly what I wanted to carry on in my profession as an acupressure therapist. I enjoyed my time at Study365. Great work guys!

    Thorough training

    The training was thorough and to the point. Yin meridians were heavily explored and each module discussed at length. I found the subject matter challenging at times, however, the explanations provided were on point. It helped me greatly and I was able to quickly grasp it.
