Testimonial from the Lower Quarter Online Particpant

I have always wanted to do your courses but with 2 little kiddies and my husband working some weekends it was always difficult to arrange someone to look after them for a whole weekend.  I know the online course took away the practical aspect of it but it was incredible to be able to attend and to watch some sessions more than once.


I love being a physio but your course gave me a renewed excitement for my practice.
