What People Are Saying....

Lisa was great! Full of energy and information. She really worked on making the information relevant to our class and knowledge base. The information is applicable to our patient polulation and I feel as though I can implement it right away.

I found the lab portion to be very helpful with the lymph drainage/edema management and the review of diaphragmatic breathing and myofacial techniques for scar management.

Loved learning some lymphatic drainage techniques! I am more confident working with clients with cancer history or current diagnosis

I have a better understanding of differential diagnosis,and signs and symptoms to be aware of that are indicative of disease progression
