TESTIMONIALS

I have integrated Orthopedic Massage techniques within all of my treatments. My clients respond very well and it has created so many referrals within my practice. These fundamentals should really be taught at massage school. I cannot believe I have been practicing so long without Orthopedic Massage. Cannot thank you enough.

Orthopedic MassageTherapist Testimonial

I will always be your customer and put good a word out about your company. Seminars for Health surpassed all other schools when it comes to the quality and quantity of learning you will get.

General-Participant Testimonial

Thank you Linda and Seminars for Health, for bringing workshops to Grande Prairie. Just completed a weekend of OM courses and have to say it was one of the best courses I have taken to date. The instruction was clear and Linda made sure we were comfortable and confident in the new skills we learn. I can’t wait to start using these new techniques in my treatments.
