Very informative and also fun, with clear explanations in practical usage of this type of moxabustion. I enjoyed a lot the light and joyfull way of teaching. Also very big advantage of this course is printable handouts. Waiting for more courses from this teacher, thank you.

The material was presented in a clear, understandable, and engaging manner. The supplementary material (handout) was easy to follow, thorough, and refer to after the course was over.

I learned a lot of new things about some common foods in my kitchen. I already knew how many of our foods work on a nutritional and healing level in TCM, but learning how our food can be applied topically for healing… WOW!

Is this what Hippocrates had in mind when he said “Let your food be your medicine and medicine be your food”?

Amendment to my earlier review: After I had posted it, Shay immediately provided the handout and it is now part of the package… which makes me absolutely happy with his course! Great teacher, great content, very hands-on! 🙂

extremely suitable course

This is a very interesting and extremely suitable course. I enjoyed it a lot, especially because it was something completely new to me. Fostering the idea of Yang Sheng, I am very much looking forward to introducing my patients to this knowledge of self-treatment (of course only after having tried it on my own).

If the course came with a short, simple handout with an overview of the most important take-home messages for each spice, I would have awarded all five stars. Maybe this could be added still?
