I was very pleased with the information that was included. Was never bored and it very much kept me intrigued to the last page! I would absolutely order another course as well as recommending it to other LMT!

I do massage cupping, but it was great to review and refresh this material. I learned a lot of things that were not taught to me during the course I took. Great course and can't wait to take more.
Sara Clouse, LMT
I enjoyed that this course was to the point, very well written and easy to follow. I learned new techniques that I will now be able to start using; as well as new information to help explain to my clientele.

Excellent course and it provided information and history that I wasn't aware of. I was very pleased with the course material.
