By Catherine F. on 17. July 2019 for Osteopathic Diagnosis of the Thoracic Spine Region

Very thorough and easy to understand. I especially love the video demonstration after the lecture. The only this that can be improved is a look of confidence. He reminds me of myself when I speak to a large audience, I get nervous. So if he can do it, maybe someday I can as well.

Thanx for the video
