Comments from "TCM Tongue Diagnosis"

Knowledge and humble teacher

Obvious command of the material. Well prepared. Clear and organized. This is as good as it gets.

WOW! I never thought tongue diagnosis could be so clear! I love that he showed photos at the end and went over the points that he had covered for the previous 7 hours...fantastic! You could see exactly what he had presented in action. Great stuff!

Thank you all at Lotus for creating this experience for us to learn directly from DR Maciocia. It was wonderful to see and hear him in real-time. I feel he was able to clarify subtle nuances in tongue dx. After reading & studying his books for so many years it was a treasure to see him.

Have known about him for years. Have all his books, just never had the opportunity to hear him lecture. Thank you for providing this webinar. As I indicated in my email before.I have always taken many webinars for CEUs that were pretty worthless. But this is really awesome. With much appreciation.

Extremely clear. Very knowledgeable. Open to questions with good honest answers. interesting anecdotes. humble. extremely worthwhile.

Very knowledgeable and not boring

I appreciate G. Mac. ' clarity in his presentation.

If possible, please feature Dr. Maciocia again.

It was very informative. He is very generous in sharing his experiences.

The tongue master! Dr. Maciocia is a great teacher, such an honor to listen to him teach.

A true master. I need to learn more from him. Because he himself has studied and practiced thoroughly and knows himself, he can explain things very simply.

Maciocia is an amazing teacher; clear, concise, with great cases and examples of all the differentiations that were possible.

He was able to make tongue diagnosis much easier. Things make sense and fall into place.

Wonderful teacher

I enjoyed Dr. Maciocia very much. His wisdom and ability to explain tongue diagnosis is superb.

It was amazing to hear Dr. Maciocia speak. He is a wonderful teacher and was a joy to listen to.

Very knowledgeable and presented very helpful information

Does Maciocia need any commenting? No! He is so experienced and speaks so freely and easily about a variation of conditions and can always come up with examples and an analysis. I hope he keeps up the good work for a long time. Very sad he is not in Europe for consultation. Happy he does do webinars and he keeps up his website. And very grateful that he answers emails so quickly, being very helpful.
