What a wonderful school and what a great course the Swedish Massage was and excellent way to learn about the history, technique and everything in between. I was surprised to see how much information was provided for this course and how easy it was to follow along. When I completed the course I was able to complete case studies with ease and confidence. I would highly recommend this school for anyone seeking to become a holistic health professional. There are many courses offered and in a variety of areas. Kristina Barnes – Canada
