Review by Daniel / (Posted on 23/07/2019)
The second day I was overwhelmed because so there were so many activities combined with trigger points and stretching. I couldn't get points these advanced techniques due to lack of experience . But it's good for people who is seeking advanced techniques.
The class was held on Thursday, so only 4 students participated in the class. It luckily meant we could get a lot of teacher's attentions , we were even told how we should move legs during massage , how to use own weight effectively to give pressure.
Class mates were all professional therapists, so gave useful feedback that normally I couldn't get from customers.
