This Chair Massage class is awesome. Miss Amanda is very nice, she is very welcoming and very knowledgeable.
As a non-RMT, this course was very informative (practical and theory) with lots of time to practice what we learned. Amanda was a great teacher and made it really easy to spend a Saturday learning.
Every RMT and Non RMT should do this course.
Very nice course, material every organized and instructor very knowledgeable.
I'm glade I took the course. I feel much more confident doing chair massage treatments and ready to start my own business.
