From a student after taking the national board (ARCB®) exam:

“Just opened my ‘congratulations’ letter from ARCB®, and I was frankly shocked to see that I got a 96.67% on my A&P because I thought after the exam that I’d gotten more wrong on that portion. I absolutely credit both Christine’s exam review class and Bethany’s A&P review class with that result.  The classes were timed perfectly in advance of the exam, and really hammered home the essentials that many of the exam questions addressed. Thank you all for great learning and preparation…and I would advise all students to included in their preparation both the exam review and A&P review.”

“Neil is a fun, knowledgeable instructor. He really put us as ease. Very enjoyable!”

Bill Flocco’s Ear, Hand and Foot Reflexology Classes:

“I have been meaning to write to thank you and all others responsible for the Bill Flocco class coming to Seattle. The material was magnificently presented. I already have given a client this artful assistance. Bill Flocco is the best teacher I have ever had.”

“I have been increasingly impressed with the power of ear points. I had a client come in with asthma so severe she could hardly speak let alone breathe unimpeded. I worked several points and she remarked with great relief how much better she could breathe and how comfortable she’d become. I had a client come in for foot pain, mentioning pain in her mid-back. I held spinal points and pain points and some others and after several minutes she said “is it possible what you did made my back pain go away?”  Yesterday my sacrum was really fussing at me, so in-between clients 2 and 3 I held sacral and pain points for only about 5 mins and voila, pain gone and not back since. I could share other stories. Yesterday a client with elbow pain…pain in all 3 reflex areas so I could show him and give him “homework”. It’s taken me a while to really integrate Bill’s teaching in an organic way, but I’m finding it dovetailing wonderfully with Lynne Booth’s VRT, too!  These wonderful developers give us the science…and we make with it the art!”
