What participants are saying about our CMT Seminars:

"This course was well thought out, well structured, with plenty of useful techniques and enough time to understand their purpose, the application and the assessment of the result. Personally, I have already used all of the techniques and found them very effective. I don’t think I have taken away as much usable techniques before and felt fully confident of them..."

"Also the extra focus on techniques for awakening the nervous system of weaker muscles brought this into more clarity. And this is such a vital area. Already two weeks after taking the course I am getting improved results with my clients."

"Your course has revitalised my love for therapy, it's been invaluable to my business and I'm way happier with my work. I'm eternally grateful!!"
