Stories from our students

"I learned so much in my prenatal class with Janine (she is an excellent teacher). Before taking her class, I had some nervousness about massaging a prenatal client but after her class I not only felt knowledgeable but confident!

The class was detailed and organized. She paced the class just right, so you feel challenged but not overwhelmed.
Thanks Janine! You are amazing at what you do!!!"


Bridget Jones


"Janine's Prenatal Massage program was the best continuing education course I have ever taken.

If you are looking to either learn about prenatal massage for the first time or expand on the knowledge you already have this course Is a must.

It has transformed my practice and given me the confidence and skills I need to treat prenatal clients safely and efficiently. "


Katrina Judge


"Janine showed how to massage on the abdominal area,
I thought it is not good to rub the abdominal area. My old idea was broken!

Her English is very easy to listen to. And she is very feminine. I think she is perfect to match to teach prenatal/ postnatal massages."
