“I have been a therapist for 6 years and I can honestly say that my clients prefer this massage to any other Holistic or Swedish massage they have ever had.”

“I've been in the industry for years now, but after seeing and learning these new techniques, I have realized that there is more to a full body massage than I give credit to. I still can’t believe that we didn't learn this in collage.”

“I did a Holistic massage course through another school a year ago but didn't complete my exam because I was dissatisfied and didn't agree with what I was taught.  I decided to try again  through Balancingtouch because they seemed better than the other place.... I should have come here first, they exceeded my expectation and they actually care. Thank you Balancingtouch!  ”

" I've been going for regular massage for years now and always wanted to learn how to give a massage.
After doing the course with Devin and learning how, I have realized that most therapists don't even do half the stuff I've learned in this course. As a spa client and as a student, this is truly the best massage I have ever had and my new clients agree!"
