Her knowledge base is incredible. I feel like I just scratched the surface on what there is to know. But I feel very equipped to go out and perform the protocol. I’m going to make a transition to all private MLD because it is more important than anyone even knows.

Wow, so definitely one of the hardest experiences that I’ve been through. Throughout my massage career but definitely one of the most rewarding. Plenty of tears and laughs. Met tons of new friends that I’m excited to come back and see again in a few years. Anne was wonderful, highly recommend her. And Gabby of course. Overall a really great team and loved all of the support and the patience was appreciated!

"Anne was wonderful, Highly Recommend!"

I was already doing lymphatic drainage but there was really no formal training. But know that I know what I know and I get to take that back to my patients. I am just so blessed to have been here and experience the education. It was so scientific which was so important to me since I was a nurse. I feel really confident to go back to offer these services to my patients. I thank you all for the opportunity to learn.

"I’m just so blessed to have found Anne! "
