Customer Reviews:

“I recently took John Hoffmann's Myofascial Release course. I was not sure that I would glean very much from it, but I can guarantee you that I have. I find myself thinking about how I can use the skill set (as appropriate) on many of the clients that I work on. I know that I am going to be returning to the  online  material revisiting the work as questions arise. I look forward to taking more JUMOZY credits." Ellen S.
