"Bill, Thank you for the truly amazing cohort put together this last year; you and Steve have been great motivators and challengers for my progression in this profession. I really like the approach of NAIOMT and how it makes the 'scary things' (i.e. cervical manipulations) safe and gives me confidence in performing them! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT!"
