I learned so much in that course of the foundational knowledge that I need in order to treat children, and I loved it so much that I decided to pay for that course for the employees who work in my clinic in the future because of the high case load that we see of children.

I really, really love Rebecca Avern as a teacher. She is excellent. She's patient and kind, and very thorough in the knowledge that she presents in that class.

Rebecca's teaching is impeccable. She’s got such a passion for Paediatric acupuncture, and that really comes through in her teachings.

The program with the TCM Academy is the best one that I've done. It’s an excellent way to get more Paediatric acupuncturists out there.

It's nice to be in the comfort of your own home or any surroundings not having to travel to a different place or venue.

We had people from all different areas of the world and it was lovely just seeing how they practice within their own practice, like little traditions that they might have.
