in SeaTac, WA Oct 10 – 13, 2024
Thurs to Sun, Columbus Day Weekend

Prerequisite: Online Masterclass

The 4-Day Live Techniques Intensive is designed to round out your skills in MMT. Our experienced instructors, trained and selected by David Morin, will give you direct experience and practice of all the hands-on techniques taught in the online Masterclass.

This intensive is not a stand-alone course, it is available only in conjunction with our 5-Month, On-Line Master Class.

If you start applying yourself now, there’s still time to complete the Online Masterclass to be ready to attend this 4-Day live class in October.

Put the icing on the cake! 

Please come having already practiced the techniques covered in our videos and ready to demonstrate to me what you have already learned. That’s how you will get the most out of this class.

You will feel better armed in your business of doing massage, having confidence and credibility to bring in clients who are tailored to what you do best, rather than whoever walks in the door.
– Julie Brown, Instructor
