The Diet and Nutrition course that I participated at SOHA was really a wonderful experience. The course structure was packed with solid and dynamic content. From Day 1 of the course, there's always something new to learn from the macro nutrients like carbohydrates, fats and proteins to micro nutrients of vitamins and minerals; and something useful to apply in our daily lives, like consuming too much starch, besides sugar, can contribute to diabetes. The course also delve into diseases and how certain food with the right nutrients can be use as medicine to cure these ailments.
The most challenging, and I would say, interesting and useful, part of the course, was to present 5 case studies on the nutritional deficiencies and our recommendations on how to overcome them. It took a lot of research, interviews with 'patients' and application of course knowledge to be able to present a coherent argument of how we, as future nutritional advisors, can help our clients to attain a healthy life based on good nutritional food.
This was the portion where I gain the most benefits of applying course knowledge to my daily life.
The Hand & Foot reflexology course which I have participate has kept me excited for 2 months. The course is extremely well structured with experience teacher, Mr Ong Thiam Soon, whom has very strong knowledge & deep experience in massage. He ensures all of us understood the lectures and is always willing to share with us on other methods or techniques to use.
This course enables me to massage myself, on affected sore areas where I can’t reach, on either the hand or the foot. It’s a very good way to release or lighten the pain. Understanding of the Contra-indication also made me realised that not all the people are suitable for massage. I am now able share with my family & friends so that they are more aware before they go for any massage session.
I am glad I have sign up for the course at SOHA Institute. This investment definitely worth the time and price.
