With so many of my clients being stressed on a regular basis, this course has allowed me to be a better therapist in helping them relieve their anxiety and understand just what is the cause and how the human body reacts.

I recently had a client who was suffering from a panic attack. Although I was able to help through gently massage and craniosacral therapy, I really did not understand what my client was experiencing at the time. This course gave me the insight and specifics that I was looking for so that I can better relate to the needs of my clients. Thanks!
Misty Newhouse, LMT
I find a lot of my clients suffer from PTSD and panic disorder. Having specific treatment to help them and suggestions they can do to help themselves is really wonderful. This course also encouraged me to learn more about pharmaceutical part and how I can support treatment and symptoms of medications my clients take.
Carolyn Stubbs, LMT
This course was absolutely amazing. It was so informative. I really really enjoyed the studies done and the out come. I loved it. Maybe various health care institutions and facilities will began to implement massage therapy as part of the treatment for the overall wellbeing of the patient/client. And maybe medical insurance carriers will start paying for massage therapy, allowing the insured to pay us copays and we get reimbursed like the doctors.
Kelly Conner, LMT
This had some fantastic information about anxiety, clients dealing with emotional trauma and how you can benefit them. I already have clients in mind that I want to help with the information I've just learned.
