  • Janet Travell, MD

This eclectic approach results in selecting the most effective, efficient, evidence-based Manual Therapy techniques for the specific pathology.

     Customer Testimonials

This is my 4th course with Hands-On Seminars and I would highly recommend it to my colleagues. The instructors are extremely friendly and knowledgeable and made the courses interesting. The small class size helps to receive greater attention during lab sessions.
