​​​​What People Are Saying About Our Continuing Ed Classes


  Always a great enjoyable lesson.  
  Can't wait until I can learn more....Informative, amazing class.

 Wanted to let you know I am amazed at the relief I am still experiencing from your class on Sunday. I haven't been without this pain for over 15 years. My lower back pain and hip pain are gone and I have minimal shoulder pain.

  God blessed me with your knowledge!

  Many thanks and warm regards for an AMAZING class on Saturday for      TMJ.  Your knowledge, enthusiasm, and compassion is     inspiring!

  I look forward to taking more classes from you!

  Holy Cow!  That last session was enormously valuable.
  Unending gratitude to you for your commitment to health and well being and  for the talents you've learned to implement that commitment.
  See you soon.

  With deep gratitude,
