I spent the weekend with over 1000 massage students and therapists, plus all the great vendors and support staff in Atlanta this weekend at the inaugural American Massage Conference. I’d have to say they definitely batted 1000! A good time was had by all!

    I couldn’t agree more with you, Laura. I was one of the students in your class on Friday and I must say that you put me at ease about taking my exam. Your way of delivering information with simplicity is awesome. I also enjoyed the panel on Friday night and hearing the thoughts and advice of industry greats, such as yourself. You rocked on stage Saturday night!! Thanks so much for taking your time to be there and being open and available to up and coming therapists, like myself.
