Theressa Lenarduzzi (Lacombe) I’m attending an Advanced Lower Back and Pelvic Course this weekend with Cheryl Stephenson. If you have not taken her courses, they are a MUST HAVE! Packed full of valuable information, key techniques and treatments, and she is an excellent instructor! Wow–I had taken her courses 4 years ago and now I am taking a refresher series. If you are a serious RMT, contact Cheryl for information about her courses and also the online training called Tissue Talk. You are missing out if you don’t! Thanks Cheryl!

Mandie McLeary (Cochrane)  Thank you so much for an action packed weekend! I feel like I’m looking through new eyes and I feel so much more confident in my profession. I can’t wait to attend the next seminar.

Joanna Romanuk (Sherwood Park) It was so beneficial to learn from someone with so much experience. Thanks!

Judith Dornan (Okotoks) Very useful techniques with extremely practical treatments that can be incorporated straight into my practice.

Mariette Janisse (Calgary) The course was well organized with lots of hands on learning opportunity. The time flew by and never felt rushed or that the information was too fast to grasp.
