- "I have been practicing as a physical therapist for 13 years. I have a manual therapy background and have used other myofascial release (MFR) techniques, but the MFR techniques I have learned in these classes have blown any other techniques out of the water. I have obtained amazing results with my patients with a wide variety of diagnosis. They have changed my practice and the lives of my patients. Thank you so much for teaching these courses."
