The course material is very thorough and well written. Some meridian positions were slightly different than what I learned in school so it was nice to have other options.
This was a really difficult class. I enjoyed it and it was not easy.
Hope Montgomery, LMT
This was the first time that I have used this company. I had no problems with the whole experience. I have already recommended the courses to another massage therapist and she loved the courses as well. Thank you for a great experience.

The course was very interesting. I only had trouble with one question. I couldn't find the answer anywhere. I just took a guess. #25
