"Patient Consultations with Judy Worsley"

Seattle, WA

ericandjudy_ver2.jpgJudy Worsley , the lineage holder of Worsley 5 Element Acupuncture (click here for her bio.) , will be in Seattle for patient consultations.  It's an incredible opportunity for the patient to be seen by the top expert in 5 Element acupuncture and for the practioner to learn and provide the best treatment possible for their patient.

Here is how it works: the appointment is set up through the patient's practitioner contacting me via phone or email. It's $275 for a consult, make your check out to "Eric Hartmann, LLC".  For practitioners, it's $175/day to observe consultations (or $100 if you bring a patient for a consult) and you get 7 CEU's/PDA's.

If you're a practioner and have any questions, please contact me at 206-769-6709 or email at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
