Heather Ashwell


I hope I can come back and study this some more once I submit all of this I feel like I passed the test no problem but I have no clue what I am doing yet and need to study it more and more 22 hours just does not cover learning all the knowledge packed in this course

Jodie Hulslander


Loved it! Love that I can refer back to the videos.

Angela Donohue


Great information. Instructor stayed on topic and presented the course in an order that flowed well and was simple to follow. New techniques that I can add a new menu item to my business as well as incorporate into my current massage. Very useful.

Beverly Anderso Parsons


Your courses are clear and to the point. I especially liked having the CD so I could see someone engaging in the practices.
