I just wanted to say that I was so impressed with the presentations I watched this last week. The wealth of information shared was amazing and I am so excited to be able to share it all with my clients.
What was a last attempt at getting credits for cycle 10, turned into so much more. I am so thankful to have experienced this as it will change my practice and the way I work with and approach clients and subjects. A huge heart-felt thank you!!!!

See this? These are fantastic. I don’t need credits but took this offer up because I was disappointed to not be able to take part (even online) in this summit as I was in surgery. I’ve watched just two of the lectures in part one of these course and I have to say it’s the best $30 (even if it is American) I’ve spent in a LONG time - and there’s still two more lectures left. I highly recommend RMTs take this offer up. Well worth the money and the time and I just can’t see how watching these talks WON’T somehow make you a better therapist!

I do not endorse other people’s classes very often, but I will recommend this one. I just completed it and I feel a little smarter now! If you do not have an understanding of current pain science, this course is the place to start.

This is an excellent format for learning. These videos are directly from the San Diego Pain summit. The teachers are personable and interesting presenters. The class is easy to navigate and customers service was great
