“Crossroads Acupuncture offers an amazing auricular acupuncture course and NADA certification. The class was bilingual which added greatly to the overall experience. Ryan’s presentation was evidence-based and highly engaging. The prep material laid the groundwork for an exceptional learning experience. I was fortunate to complete my internship in Mexico. I count this training as one of the best clinical experiences of my career. As a social worker, I gained deeper insights into cultural humility and the strengths-based perspective discussed in my academic training. Ryan is an excellent teacher, trainer, and social justice warrior.”
