“Amazing, helpful, compassionate, solidly knowledgeable in KMS. Thank you!”
--Review of KMS basics class with Grace Rollins
"I had the opportunity to participate in the Introduction to Kiiko Matsumoto Style course with the wonderful Grace and I loved it. Grace is an excellent instructor with a detailed yet accessible approach. I recommend it!"
"I had such a transformative weekend. I've felt a bit stagnant in my practice for the past year and after the weekend, I feel a sense of renewal and interest I haven't in a while."
"I have just completed an intro to Kiiko Matsumoto Style acupuncture with Grace Rollins, who is an amazing teacher. Thanks to her it has been a memorable discovery and an incredible learning experience. Cannot wait to participate in the next seminar!"
"The Introduction to Kiiko Matsumoto Style course taught by Grace Sensei was fantastic. I had already practiced Nagano acupuncture method and the intensive in Kiiko Style greatly helped my clinical practice, and also helped me to grasp certain concepts that I didn't understand before, regarding the relationship between the classics and and Western medicine, as well as the recent discoveries of Kiiko Sensei. Grace Sensei has total command of the subject and the classes are both theoretical and very practical, such that you can apply the materials to your clinic right away. It's a course that greatly strengthens your foundations in this method." -Henrique N.
