Such important information delivered in a manner that makes sense and can be used with so many patients. I have much better understanding of how manual work addresses health at the cellular level!

I can’t thank you both enough for your patience, way you make things easy and understandable!! I am so grateful!

Bob and Jon did an excellent job breaking down the anatomy, assessment, and treatment of the cervical spine.

BayGrass Institute courses are stellar. The information is always anatomically and physiologically supported. Palpation techniques and treatment techniques are immediately applicable. This is a course that honors and respects patient care and the instructors are clearly thoughtful clinicians and teachers.

Stephanie T.

I have never seen techniques presented for the foot that actually work! Great combinations of lab time and lecture. Foot mechanics explained in a learnable fashion. Amazing instructors.

Rowena O.

Appreciated the anatomy and biomechanical review as well as the thorough techniques learned.

Kathie F.

The course was challenging, but being exposed to new information will definitely improve my craft.

Judy A.

The hands-on portion accompanying the lecture theory is a great tool to practice and see this work in action.
