“The week after the imassage workshop I had a full schedule of clients waiting for me with many being new to the practice. Had I not taken the workshop, learned new techniques and developed the confidence to use deeper tissue work effectively, I would've never turned so many into repeat clients. You've helped to make my practice more effortless and my clients would thank you as well I'm sure.”

~ S. Belyea, LMT, Reiki Master, Tampa, FL
