These advanced twelve techniques allow a quicker evaluation of the adherences by the therapist as well as to know how to handle the various conditions with the advanced twelve techniques being taught.

After graduating from Pfrimmer, I was a PDMT for 14 1/2 years before taking the Advanced Pfrimmer.  I would say to you - take this.  I wish I had taken this many years ago.  The techniques I have learned are invaluable!  My body will be so happy to use my new tools!  I am so very excited to return to my clints and see the difference I can make in their lives as well as saving my wear and tear on my own body!  Anita Kean (11-6-21)

This class has been a wonderful asset in my growth as a licensed massage therapist.  I cannot recommend this class enough.  The teaching instruction, hands-on time, and materials were very well done.  Jackie and Michelle were fantastic and have a vast amount of knowledge they are willing to share.  As the hand-on instruction went on, they are wonderful in their approach to correcting your technique but in the same sense building your confidence.  I have already been able to think of so many of my clients who will be helped by my continuing education.  There has been a ton of heart, thought, time, and effort to create this class.  If you take the time to focus and learn, it will be a wonderful tool to add to your tool belt! - Amy Taylor (11-6-21)
