"I took Hal's Swedish Massage course back in 2002. I commuted 4 hrs alternating weekends from Detroit to St Ignace because It was a golden opportunity to learn a skill to serve others; alleviating stress and/or pain. Back then, we dabbled not only in Swedish Massage, but had our hands full with several other modalities to facilitate relief and healing including some things rarely offered by other schools like; Iridiologiy, auricle accupuncture/acupressure, Chinese fire glass cupping, as well as the standard mix of Refleology, Deep tissue, Trigger point, Cranial/sacral, Lymph drainage massage, and much more. INT provided all tools and skill levels in the introductory program that exceeds the normal scope of practice of most new and some seasoned professionals. His student/teacher ratio allows much one-on-one guidance, plus, his class schedules are doable. I lovingly refer to his massage school as the Marine School for Massage; intense but well worth it!
