This program was one of the best things I did for my practice. I learned a lot and have used the techniques taught to help patients who may not be ideal candidates for chiropractic treatments. This gives me another approach or “tool” to help my patients. The instructors were very knowledgeable and I would recommend this course to anyone.

I highly recommend this course to anyone interested in acupuncture. Dr. Elorriaga Claraco’s lectures are very insightful and his in class case studies and treatments show the effectiveness of this approach to acupuncture. The course content is practical. No fluff or fillers. I was amazed by how much I was able to learn in such a relatively short time.
