Course Reviews

Tammy Wellock, LMT

Excellent and interesting content. Love the explanations and examples throughout. A great learning curve was easy to achieve with this course/book as it was very easy to follow and understand. Loved the picture examples provided for testing. OUTSTANDING!!

Jason Ryan, LMT, NCTMB

Very good reference book as part of the course. Clear photos and anatomical drawings.

J. Wolf, LMT

This training manual has a wealth of information and can tie together some aspects of many disciplines. There is a ton of anatomy review that also ties into Chinese medicine and nutritional principles. I have been a practioner for 23 years and found this subject very interesting and may look at dysfunctions of health in a new way.

Susan L. Plouffe, LMT

Although taking this course doesn't allow one to become an Applied Kinesiologist without a medical degree, there was so much material I learned in this course that I may be able to use some of it in understanding the mystery of muscle aches and pains. The principals of the agonist/ antagonist muscle pairs alone will guide me in trying different treatment plans. Still learning many new things after 30 years of practice!

Brandy Adams- Crisel, LMT

I am an instructor for kinesiology and I loved the way this book explained things so easily. It is very straight-forward and well illustrated. Thank you.
