This course was exactly what I was looking for. Clear concise and to the point information I will implement in my practice. I now do not have to be as concerned as to what to watch out for. Thank You.

Gave me some basic insight into three nervous system disorders and their symptoms and how massage can benefit them.
Jonathan Levy, LMT
As with the other courses that I've taken from the Institute, this course was very worthwhile. It gave me new and useful knowledge in a clear and easy to understand way, and inspired me to try working with clients who have some of the disorders covered by the course. For such a short course it packed a real punch. Thank you for this excellent course.
