Featured Reviews

Having completed Parts I and II of Holistic Pathology, I feel much better equipped to assist my clients and offer knowledgeable referrals when they are necessary.

- Stephanie Herring, CMT, NCTMB

This course will help greatly with my business, as massage therapy is moving away from just being used as a way to relax and being sought out as a legitimate way to healing. Knowledge of pathology and the contraindications is critical

- Bybee Ludwig, NCTMB

Big book full of relevant information that I'm sure I'll reference often. I loved this course, as it challenged my memory and taught me new things.
