I am obsessed! Thank you so much for being so in-depth and thorough. You and your class have made a significant impact on me, my career and my overall self-esteem by your benevolence and knowledge – I am so encouraged.

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!
You are a gifted teacher! I am enjoying the class, and after over 47 years of medical and 26 years of acupuncture training I've attended a load of classes!
This class is AMAZING!! Michelle Gellis is an acupuncture genius, intuitive goddess and FUNNY AS HELL! Literally the best.

I wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed the Facial Rejuvenation class. I'm so excited to begin working with patients and helping them look and feel younger with Acupuncture. Everything was well-researched and easy to follow.
Val Sjoberg, LAc MAc
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!

Facial Acupuncture CEU Classes with Michelle Gellis are a definite value for the new or seasoned practitioner who wants to expand the dimension of their acupuncture practice.
Thank you Michelle...I had gotten very beneficial information from your Webinar...great handouts and lecture...much appreciated as a professional acupuncturist.
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.
