Neil is a very good speaker and does an excellent job of articulating the information. It can be confusing, but he does a great job of getting to the point, but also explaining the varied nuances of each point. I have a much clearer understanding of how I could use these points.

Susan W. (United States)

Great lectures. Clear, concise and so much wisdom. Thank you Neil.

Tenelle W. (United States of America)

Do this course, you'll just love it! Neil Gumenick makes learning a joy. It's taught from the heart and the use of metaphors, imagery and symbolism to illustrate the points is inspiring and enriches the content.

miranda h. (United Kingdom)

Through courses in Classical Five Element Acupuncture we are reminded that we, our minds, bodies and spirits are nature. Energy is creates and is created in endless cycles and imbalances in one area creates imbalances in others.

Enjoyable and full of great information regarding the spirits of the points.

Linda A. (United States)

Excellent program - nice to be able to do at my own pace!

Susan R. (Canada)

The weaving of metaphors and pictures along with the description of the points, gave me a most memorable way to use these points in my practice. When I see it, I feel it:). Thank you.
