Training Feedback

Jon Hobbs is an excellent speaker, clear, concise, easy to listen to and delivered an amazing amount of information in a short time. His practical sessions were excellent, very thorough and not intimidating with adequate time to individually check our needling techniques and accuracy. Having courses run by lecturers who are also accomplished physiotherapists and clinicians currently treating patients makes such a difference!
