CONTINUING EDUCATION FOR MASSAGE THERAPISTS
Unlike so many other presenters who only share information specific to their own
trademarked technique, HITT specializes in strategy-based education. Instead of giving
therapists just one more 'recipe', we prefer to explore what, how and why things work. Our
goal is to give therapists the knowledge and wisedom needed to create their own personal
strategies for successfully serving their clients.
