Attendee Feedback

It had heaps of relevant information which was delivered in a really easy to understand and enjoyable manner. Liz was a fantastic presenter and the printed course notes were a huge help. I found the case studies really useful as they were helpful in terms of understanding how the fascial techniques could be applied and also from the note-keeping perspective.

Fiona Spring

Liz is by far one of my favourite presenters. She is down to earth and very approachable but has such a wealth of knowledge and experience and a great way of distilling and presenting information. The content was perfectly contained, with just the right amount of material to come away with something to use straight away and not feel overwhelmed.

The courses are always a really reasonably price, which I appreciate. The online content was well presented and easy to watch.

Sara Jane Hammond

The information was imparted with clarity and ease. The group was small, which made for a fully engaged learning experience.

Liz is a wonderful teacher. She doesn't come from a place of ego-driven boasting, which many presenters do, but communicates well and shares her knowledge generously.

It was a fabulous course which I thoroughly enjoyed and have put to good use in my daily practice.
