Student course review

The course was delivered in an inspirational, kind and witty way without any loss of professionalism and eye for detail. Positive energy and love were generated and I learnt so much  beyond my expectations. I left  knowing I can now do full body massage and the DVD  is excellent.!!! Thank you Kaye for your very special teachings and patience with me. Looking forward to doing more of your courses -Lindy
