TESTIMONIALS

Sometimes it is easy to forget to take care of ourselves as therapists. The exercises I learned are easy to do at the end of a long day. I can feel my posture correct itself already.

Self Care with Critical Alignment-Participant Testimonial

I loved this course. I found the seminars reminded me of previous anatomy lessons and very specific techniques to target these areas. I also found the course was evidence-based and taught extremely well. I would highly recommend Seminars for Health, particularly the Advanced Orthopedic Massage Certification Program!
