Testimonials from Sydney workshop 2014
“Thank you again for this amazing seminar, I felt welcome and I learnt heaps. The most beneficial outcome from my side as a therapist is that I haven’t been using my thumbs as much as in the past and my back and neck certainly like this kind of work. My clients have commented on how “light” they feel after the massage.” – Myriame (Canberra).
“Since I’ve been back at my practice I performed 95% of my work with CORE Myofascial therapy. I had great and some amazing results.” – Mic (Townsville)
“Having recently attended the CORE Myofascial workshops with George Kousaleos I would highly recommend this course to all manual therapists who are keen to understand and explore the amazing world of fascia. As a physiotherapist I found the material invaluable and a great add-on to what I am already using. George was highly informative and has so much experience to give you great insight into this fantastic treatment method. This is one course not to be missed and I look forward to attend any further training with him next year.“ Taso Lambridis, BSc (Physiotherapy) MSc (Sports Medicine), Sydney.
