Course Reviews

L. Vick, LMT

Wow! This is the best CE class I have ever taken! I really thought I knew my anatomy well, and I did, but I had a very poor understanding of pathologies. I have the Merck manual and it doesn't begin to illuminate the massage relevance as your text does. I will always refer to this book, and I thank you, thank you, thank you for this reference guide. I couldn't tell you enough positive!

D. Kelleher, LMT

Both the CD Rom and DVD were fabulous tools for those of us who are visual. What a great reference manual!

D. Gifford, NCMT, AMTA

Finally a complete book especially designed for massage therapists and bodyworkers. The material in the book was amazing, detailed and very informative. I will be using the textbook daily for my geriatric clients. Thank you for the mental stimulation and the challenging quiz. I enjoyed this course tremendously.

D. Jenkins, LMT, NCTMB, ABMP

Very detailed and also very informative on the types of massage that are indicated for different disease/symptoms. This is the first text that has so much valuable information categorized by disease. This will be a valued reference for many years.

Deborah A. Schick, BS

The text is one that I don't want to put down! It will be placed on my treatment room desk, and not stuck on the shelf. Thank you for an incredibly informative course! Deb
