It was the final piece of information I needed to treat TMD patients.

Another terrific course. I really appreciate the expertise of the instructor and their ability to bring it all home. I am very happy that I came to embark on my LVI Journey. It has given me many more tools to effectively manage my patients. As busy as I am in my practice, I feel that I haven’t worked a day in the last 10 years. Thanks for all that you do!
