Course Reviews


This is a fabulous course! Viewing the videos and reading the texts appealed to my visual learning style. Watching the videos while I did my hands-on practice sessions was especially helpful for me in learning the techniques. Thank you for an overall wonderful continuing ed experience!

A. Carter, NCMT

I was hesitant at first to take a home study course because I didn't think it would be as effective as attending a class. I was pleasantly surprised by the video instruction and found it to be more beneficial than a class. The instruction was clear and the camera angles were good for viewing the techniques. It's great to pause on techniques and rewind. I will definitely refer to these videos in the future. Now that I know what your courses are like, I will continue to take CE courses that you offer.

This class was GREAT! I've been doing myofascial work for many years and this class opened my eyes to some new ways to approach specific client issues. The video's demonstrating the techniques were clear and it was easy to follow along in the textbook. Even though it took a considerable length of time to finish the class, it was well worth the investment.

Gilbert H. John, Sr., NCTMB

On 11/06/2015 I completed my 9000th massage. Because of this vast experience and some knowledge of Myofascial Release, after reading the material and looking at the DVD, I was almost immediately ready to include the material into my routines.

Nancy Bollinger, LMT

Altough I am still learning and practicing the material from this course I have had wonderful success so far using what I've learned. It has been one of the most interesting and most importantly, effective courses I have taken in 25 years of practice. Only regret, of course, I wish I had experienced this sooner. I will continue to incorporate myofascial release techniques into my practice.
