Feedback from ESSA Members:

“Sign me up for more, great! Where was this when I was at uni?”

“The demonstration of the exercise first then followed by the practitioner notes was fantastic, it allowed you to think about the exercise first, then read up on the finer sections. Great progression of exercises for every scenario. Great package, I’ll definitely be using it for my work as a reference going forward.”

“Fantastic explanation of the exercises and why they’re performed. Also loved the ‘what to say to patients.’”

“Incredibly clear instruction sheets for exercise prescription. Very informative and appropriate presentation of information that could have been overwhelming if it was not delivered in the way it was. Edited magnificently.”

“Fantastic course, and will definitely be using it for my work.”

“Having a separate PDF makes it easier to find information when compared to online webinars.”
