Thank you for this fun and informative course. I look forward to using my knowledge with my clients :) I feel a huge boost of confidence now when dealing with those who suffer from arthritis and similar conditions discussed in this course.

The pictures added visual knowledge about arthritis, making the topic easy to understand. I will use this knowledge in my massage therapy practice.

The reading material was great. I had already know about paraffin treatment. I knew a little about Balneotherapy. I thought it was a good idea that one still had to read the informationto find "the answers".
Carolyn Stubbs, LMT
This course is magnificent. So many people that I know have some form of arthritis; including myself from a car accident. I have been using some of these techniques on myself and have been reaping the benefits. Now I will be able to help my clients more efficiently. Thank you.
