Thank You for this Foot Pathology course - It was interesting and quick to read and learn - I can easily use this information in my practice - just what I wanted:)

I liked that actual massage techniques were clearly discussed. I will be able to use this information in my practice often. Thanks for a great, basic course with a surprising amount of information.

I love feet! I learned more about Morton's toe and found the information very interesting. I would have liked a few illustrations, but I was able to find all of the additional information I wanted in my reference book.
Denise Heatley, LMP
I suspect I have a Morton's Toe and the suggestion to make a foot pad to put under my toe is something I'm going to try. All my adult life I've had back, hip, knee, TMJ pain and now arthritis in my knees. Great information in this course.

This was a wonderful course to launch me into doing a foot massage treatment. Its nice to read about the pathologies that are out there and how to work them. The article on Foot Health and Massage was wonderful as well.
