Diane Kelley, LMT

This course was much more interesting and informative than I expected. The information was very useful for my practice and I will be using this knowledge daily. The information/book was in an easy to read format which I will be using as a reference book at my office. I would recommend this course to other massage therapists.

Excellent course! The book is very easy to understand for someone with no previous experience on the topic. It is all clear and concise, and the information will be a valuable addition to my practice.

Kay Stuckey, LMT

I loved the book and all the reference listings for the oils. I did not really know anything about the use of essential oils; however, I would like to take more classes to expand my knowledge. It was a very positive experience. The information can and will be used in my massage practice.

Susan Crockett, LMT, AMTA
