What Practitioners have said about Qi beauty™ Training
"A few tiny pictures on John Stan's cell phone led me to completely re-think everything I know about facial acupuncture and skin care. His photos were of the first ever Qi beautyTM training in Canada. Remarkable before and after shots - you could see lines reduced, skin firming up, and actually glowing. When John said the treatment only took an hour, I was in.
I took the 2nd Qi beautyTM practitioner training by Eastern Currents, thinking I was going to learn a really cool new skin treatment technique. The course outline photos showed a relaxed patient with a matrix of tiny golden magnetized beads laid over her face, like some exotic jewellery...much more attractive than 100 needles in your face during an acupuncture treatment.
Kathy Pedersen started her morning lecture about static magnetic fields and their effects on skin, blood vessels, and nerves, and I found myself perched on the edge of my chair, fascinated and intensely curious. Therapeutic? Was I hearing this right?
Qi beauty ™ is a very simple technique to grasp if you have a good understanding of facial acupoints and the jing jin channels of the face - making acupuncturists ideal Qi beautyTM practitioners. The training course is hands-on, and straightforward, and the follow-up is outstanding.
My clinical outcomes with Qi beauty have exceeded my wildest expectations. After giving hundreds of cosmetic acupuncture facials, I can no longer think of a valid reason to ever pierce a face again. Qi beautyTM is excellent, check it out for yourself"
-Beverly Osachoff, R.TCMP, Grand Forks, British Columbia, Canada
"Thank you so much for everything. I loved the Qi Beauty course and am very excited to offer this service (as are my patients). I found all of you to be lovely and so helpful. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend the course."
-Dawn Almberg, R.Ac, Herbalist, New Balance Acupuncture, Alberta, Canada
I enjoyed your course very much. It was straightforward and clear with lots of hands-on. It was the first course I have taken in a long time where I didn't feel like a wet dishrag at the end. Maybe also because of the effect of getting the facials and the relaxation that came with them. You were obviously sincere and doing it for all the right reasons and you have a system that works. Thank you again for all your hard work in coming to Vancouver and presenting to us and if you come again for another course I think most of us will be there."
-Margot Davey, DrTCM, British Columbia, Canada
"I enjoyed learning about Qi beauty and seeing the immediate changes. You have created a innovative way to help women with their skin as they age. I enjoyed the enthusiastic teaching by your team. The scientific background presentations provided credibility to the Qi beauty process and results. The thermography photos were especially interesting. Your instructions were clear and positive feedback for our beginning attempts at using the products were much appreciated. Thank you for coming such a long distance to teach and share. All the best!
-Jean Chow, Acupuncturist, Alberta, Canada
"I was amazed at the results that were obtained on the models used in the training, with each client walking out of the clinic with obvious improvements, and very happy and amazed with the results. This has always been the case in my clinic - every single person who has had a facial has been 100% happy with the results. One of the best things about the training was that I was very confident with the skills I had learnt in the training, and was able to use it straight away in my clinic.
As an Acupuncturist and Naturopath, I first of all advertised the Facial to my existing patient base, and then broadened the target to the general population. I have found that it didn't take very long for it to sell itself, and I now rely on word-of-mouth referrals. Another advantage from a practitioner point of view is that a very large percentage of my Qi Facial clients are now also my acupuncture/naturopathy patients, so it has definitely built my business to a very large degree."
-Heather Newbold, Acupuncturist and Naturopath, Brisbane, Australia
"...As an acupuncturist of over 24 years in practice, I have obviously been using Qi and understand the concept. To see this used in conjunction with magnets instead of needles was very inspirational. Kathy and Peter delivered their well-researched information in such a concise and efficient manner that was professional and yet easy to follow and comprehend....
The Qi Beauty System has allowed my practice to expand as it gives a true alternative for those clients who may be reticent about needles but are keen and interested to do something about the aging process. I find that once a client has had a treatment they want to book again. They also want to know more about the Patch System and the other products in the range."
-Karen Di Nicola, Acupuncturist, Coffs Harbour, Australia
"...Kathy is a great mentor, trainer and friend. She is always there for me whenever I have questions or need products.She has great business acumen and goes out of her way to do what she can to help with the business of Qi beauty. I am so happy to have discovered Qi beauty and appreciate how it has helped my business by giving it a unique edge over my competitors! It introduced new clients to my clinic and also expanded my existing clientele to experience a new, exciting treatment with instant results."
-Eli Huang, Acupuncturist, Sydney, Australia
“...[Qi Beauty] aligned perfectly with the cosmetic acupuncture and naturopathy I was doing to help my clients improve their appearance, skin conditions and health. The training was very practical in nature, and instant results were noticeable. Improvement in various skin conditions, reduction of wrinkles, and clients looking younger and healthier was very apparent from just one session...a year and a half later, over half my business comes from Qi Beauty treatments, and the results and feedback from happy clients continues to be amazing.
It has definitely introduced a lot of new clients to my business too – my cosmetic acupuncture is not for everyone. Qi Beauty treatments are for everybody – they get results quickly, are unique and so relaxing, and they also support the use of Botox and other such treatments, so it brings in a different type of clientele for me. Kathy from Qi Beauty is amazing with the business and marketing side of things. She makes it so easy for me – she always has great ideas and she even prepares a lot of my marketing material! We have so much to learn from her.
I am so glad to be a part of the Qi Beauty family, personally for myself, for my clients, and the growth of my business."
