Reviews

Just wanted to give a HUGE thank you for this class. I have taken all of your classes and have not been disappointed in any of them. I have learned so much about alternative ways of healing; which has lead me to exploring other options of healing through books and online materials. I hope there are more of these classes in the future, for new ways of looking at the body and healing.
