Outstanding!!! hope he comes back for more lectures!

one of the easiest courses to understand ive taken from elotus. Really felt his style was not overwhelming as he was insanely effective at communicating consicely.

Straight to the point, concise, informative, knowledgeable! Wow. I am blown away.

Dr. McCann is, by far, one of the best speakers I have ever been privileged to listen to. His grasp of the material, the theoretical basis and this ability to communicate that information clearly, concisely, and in an entertaining and engaging way is wonderful!

Henry provides practical application through deep grounding in theory. The best approach!

very knowledgeable and he knows how to teach the material

Need more classes and books from Henry!

Great, clear, and organized!

Very engaging, I learned and retained, encouraged us to think for ourselves, was able to talk to us rather than read from slides

loved the stories, really brings the medicine to life

AWESOME speaker! I want to learn more from him!

Talented teacher.

Mr. McCann provided very good insights to the use of these points. I think it would be helpful to consolidate the introductory information in order to spend more time on the actual points.

great work. stayed energetic all day long. seemed to have lots of clinical experience

A true teacher and a great speaker, he passed on a wealth of information! I appreciate the time spent leading up to the actual points- he was teaching how to really understand and figure things out.

great seminar.

Henry is great. He presents a lot of good information and I enjoyed the history and background information.

clear, concise and good pace

Easily the best speaker so far hosted by Lotus. This year's roster is excellent. Truly some of the best presenters I've heard yet.

This was my first class with Dr. McCann and I will say I enjoyed this class as much as some of the other greats I've experienced here. Getting the theoretical background and understanding the why of acupuncture goes much farther than just data points. Thank you.

I would love to take more courses from this instructor.
