Featured Reviews

I personally prefer to learn techniques from the source staying “true” to the original practice. Your course has given me a great foundation from the ground up. Understanding the history of the practice is very helpful. The course covered all of the techniques and therefore makes it easy to determine which technique would be the best for an individual practitioner without treating beyond the “Scope of Practice.” Thank you so much...This has been very enjoyable.
