After 13 years out of PT school and mainly in acute care practice this course was very helpful to improve palpation and Myofascial technique. Thanks!

Herman and Wallace's courses are always the perfect mix of lecture and lab.

Phenomenal Course! Tina Allen covered an enormous amount of information, practical techniques and creative treatment interventions for male and female pelvic floor population. However, the class pace was very relaxed and unrushed.

I had a great experience at the Manual PT course this past weekend with Tina. She is a really awesome instructor who has a knack for teaching. She really engages the class and gets excited about the material. I learned a lot of new things that I am already using with my patients this week. I have 9 years under my belt, so I wasn't sure how much I would learn, but I was surprised that I took away several new skills.
