Massage therapist, Rosemary Chunco, says: “This course is a vital first step for every therapist wishing to be informed by research. It not only demonstrates the reasoning behind *why* every therapist needs the ability to find and critique research, but it equips the student with the first steps in how to do that, with examples that we all can relate to. As an added bonus, it was also engaging and fun.”
