OH MY GOODNESS! I am so inspired! I have always wanted my own spa and this helped me get an idea of what that would require. Very interesting and hopefully in five years I will be able to put this info to use.

L. Mahabee, LMT, NCTMB

I found that it gave me new insights as to how I could set up my plans for a wellness center. I liked the fact that it stressed how I could work as preventative health educator for my community, which I view as a very important role in society.

C. Kurilla, LMT, NCTMB, AMTA

Very well written. Sure seems like a lot of research and time was taken to write this course. Easy to understand contents and author's intent. Bravo! I really enjoyed this course. I learned a lot of new insights into opening my own spa - which I have been contemplating for a while now.

As a current establishment owner and therapist, I found this course helpful for our next phase of growth into a Wellness Center. A great refresher for my business plan. I especially liked the section on location/finding a space and the checklist associated with. Kudos on the program.
