What others are saying

Thank you for a fantastic weekend of learning! I really appreciate your efforts, it was such a great course and I would highly recommend to others. By the way, my hip pain has diminished completely!

It has been so long since I have taken a course or been taught something that is evidence based and it is SO refreshing.  I think every health care professional should take this course … You guys are doing a great job at taking the best scientific approach to a world filled with murky pseudoscience.

You guys have taken all the tricky science stuff and made it digestible and have given me the tools to talk about this in a fun and excited way.  You’re enthusiasm and excitement for this content is contagious!

Eric has become a valuable resource for me and for many massage therapists.  He is passionate about advancing the massage therapy profession, and has furthered his education and personal advancement by pursuing his masters degree in rehabilitation. After taking his course, he continued my interest in pain science and has since become influential in helping me understand the topic even more. I’m looking forward to seeing what he will continue to do in helping the profession of massage and manual therapists.

Eric teaches with humor and good grace without a hint of arrogance or egotism. He speaks passionately and confidently on a topic that he is obviously quite knowledgeable about. This course is different because it focuses on how we think and encourages us to ask some big questions. If you’re ready for a paradigm shift, this course will be the first step in that direction.
