I loved being in Michelle Gellis’s class. Well worth every penny! The content was precise and the delivery of advanced facial rejuvenation was superb in every way. Michelle makes her class fun while handing the practitioner everything to begin using learned techniques right away. The hands on and practice portion was planned out perfectly. I loved it so much. Can’t wait to take some of her online classes!

Michelle’s facial rejuvenation acupuncture class was a pleasure to take… We had the opportunity to practice what we had learned on one another, and the results were exciting! After just one practice treatment, facial lines were reduced and the skin had a very healthy, vibrant glow. Thanks for a good experience Michelle!

My training with you has tremendously helped with me facial stroke patients! The training gave me the confidence to needle the face and also, to use facial cups and the jade roller. I recently had my Bell’s Palsy patient buy the facial cups so that she can use them at home, in-between treatments. She is so happy to be able to do some self-help.
