Course Reviews

Linda Summer, LMT

Excellent books and videos. Well written and easy to follow. All techniques I can put to use immediately in my practice. Information provided helps me understand what I can or cannot accomplish in regard to headache relief for different types of headaches.

Cheryl Sprado, LMT

The book was well layed out as far as each chapter built upon the next. I also appreciated that the end of the chapters had the key points box. It was a nice review. The description of sequences was very clear and concise.

Jeffrey Carr, LMT

Overall, I feel this is an excellent course with substantial content. The training videos were very good, but could have incorporated a little more repitition on complex techniques and a little less time on some demonstrations.

Jeremy E. Miller, LMT, BCMT

Thank you for an excellent course! The expertise of Sandy Fritz and Dr. Chaitow shine through with explanations and depictions in both the text and videos that are immediately applicable in the treatment room.

June Luff, CMT, RMT

This course was excellent and very detailed, and will likely require more than 9 hours of your time. I'd say take this particular course if you truly are interested in this specific topic because it is very comprehensive and clinical in nature. I loved the videos and plan to review the videos again. This course went beyond my expectations. I highly recommend.
