What people say:

"... how much I enjoyed, nee, loved, this course! I have wanted to learn Holistic Massage for years and although I will soon be 70 (just a number!) Ana's course was the best thing I have done since learning Reiki! The way Ana teaches is perfect and truly holistic. ...because of the way Ana taught us to stand and move with the aid of Breema and Yoga movements, I am able to give a one and a half hour treatment with ease, even with arthritic knees. I love giving the treatments and feel completely fulfilled. Ana I bless you for all you have learned and for passing on your knowledge so selflessly to us.  It was quite a journey for us all and I hope that new students enjoy their journeys as much!"    Christine, Melton
