They did it !

Initially the expectation of lots of patients was very overwhelming but in fact we were able to start at a pace that was manageable.

Most rewarding was actually being able to affect change quickly for the better.

Yes, I felt supported both by the leaders of the group and by the other practitioners and assistants that were part of our group. Everybody was very approachable and helpful.

It was a unforgettable experience thanks to the caring, efficient organisation of Lapy and her mother.

Perhaps it would be good to have more freetime in the evening and during the weekend to have the chance to do things because of personal interest.

In the beginning I was scared and thought i’m way over my head, but then thanks to Delphine and Paul I got into it and learned a lot of new tricks, ways of treating and experience. I‘m very thankful for everything I was able to accomplish on this mission.

“We can see so many different type of patient condition. We can improve our skills.”

“Meeting beautiful Cambodia people they make me happy. We seen 120 people a per day. No matter how many patient see a day, important is the result. Learning their culture, language, food and religion.”

“Learning how to deal with difficult situation.”

“To work with the Si Yuan team (Delphine and Paul) is a great experience.
To treat so many people during the mission is really a good training to improve the balance Method and also the acupuncture abilities.”

“To learn more about the country and the people living there, work with local people and in a international team.”

“[We] can improve so much in every way, as acupuncturist and in live as human. [We] can see other perspectives and how lucky we are that we can do what we do.”
