Reviews of Erik Dalton

“I have seen many advertisements for Erik Dalton’s courses through several magazines over the years. I have been a massage therapist for over 14 years, and was not satisfied, and had become stagnant in my practice.

Throughout the years I have taken many CE classes which were a complete waste of time (in my personal opinion). Many courses out there claim many different things.. his courses actually deliver. As soon as I received the material, I got started right away. I was actually amazed when my clients were getting great results (sad but true, I was skeptical).

Thank you, Mr. Dalton for sparking a new, creative and remarkable passion in my practice.”

Tracy D. Frazier, LMT

“”Great news Erik, You will be proud! I have been hired as a Health Technician (medical massage therapist) by the US Army Medical Command starting Oct 22nd and I have to give you so much thanks for all your skill that I have learned in my own time and your mentorship. Way to go because if not for you and our other key instructors, I would not have the knowledge base and or skill to get this position that is now recognized by our Federal Government for our Soldiers. With me being a service-connected vet, I could only get better by alternative therapy and my instruction at Colorado Institute of Massage Therapy in 2003, even though I had earlier instruction. It all came to fruition! Whew Hew! Thank you!”

“It’s amazing how you developed these techniques that literally change the quality of life for people getting this treatment. My fibro client is raving about how much better she feels and told her doctor who wants to refer his other patients to me. The only problem I have with using these techniques in my practice is that I have a waiting list and I am booked solid. This is after one level of training and this is just the tip of the iceberg! So you deserve all sorts of commendation because you are helping so many people. So in my humble opinion you are the best Erik Dalton I hope you have your training next year in CR b/c due to unforseen circumstances I can’t make it this year and I’m really bummed about it.”

Dorie Miller

“This was the best learning experience I ever had. The audiovisual and course material were excellent. I integrated it in my practice with good results. Working for 30 years hands-on and still learning. This was great!”

Catharina Oberholzer

“This course was exactly what I needed to revive my interest in myoskeletal bodywork and application. I have recently transitioned into a clinical environment as a practitioner and have found the information invaluable. Thank you.”

Shelby Wohleber

“Dalton without a doubt raises the bar for massage therapists. This is the type of information we as a group need to learn if we really want to help those in pain.”

James Moon

“Loving what I do for a living, I continued my personal education through seminars (Neck, Low Back, Shoulder – Neuromuscular) or video instruction (positional release, deep tissue, myofascial, CS) even studying your CD on Prosagge. While I do incorporate the above, I believe I have found the best method through your series for Massage Therapy. I consider myself a medical professional and am lookingforward to making a difference in myclients, rather than “just chasing the pain.” Thank you for sharing.”

Carol McCorvie

“The best course I have taken. The videos were done so well that you almost felt as if you were taking the class in person. The camera angles along with the 3-D views of the musculature you were treating gave me the opportunity to view the material over and over until i felt confident in the procedure. The workbook which accompanied the videos will always be part of my favorite reading material. I learned more from reading this book. Great!”

Robert Wilson

“Love the way the whole course is laid out!!!”

Lola Hummel

“Great material! Gave me the chance to help my clients even more. Best course I’ve taken.”

Ellen Huber

“I was able to integrate MAT quickly into my routine and have gotten wonder results.”

Joyce Hombel

“The most comprehensive, intense, and well written work to come out in the manual therapy profession! Thank you Erik Dalton for your passion and knowledge.”

Torhild Hawkes

“The Myoskeletal Alignment Technique is far and away the most effective form of therapy in my practice. I am known in my community for possessing excellent skills in the treatment of chronic neck and back problems.”

Kristin Haas

“Thanks to your program I will now be able to go back to work. While reading the manual I kept saying to myself “I need this done to me.” So I went on-line and found James Carvelho. After one session, James did more for me than the 12 doctors I had gone to. I’m continuing sessions at least once a month. I’ve been rolfed and wanted to become one, but I think your program is even better and I want to become totally proficient in MAT because I know it works. Thank you!”

Joyce Hombel

“Wile taking my exam, I had a few questions I didn’t understand and decided to use the support line. To my surprise, Dr. Dalton himself answered and helped with the more challenging aspects of exam and even directed me to some great supplemental readings.. WOW! I don’t think you’ll get this with any other home study program. A+ to the folks at the Freedom From Pain Institute!”

Michael Krawchuk

“The seminar is taught very down to earth and with common sense. Erik and assistants were very accessible and knowledgeable. I liked the showing and emphasizing multiple ways to do or work the same muscles or joints. I will recommend Erik’s work and seminars. I agree with his approach – there is good knowledge everywhere, don’t get stuck in one place.”

Jim Mills

“After attending a number of Erik Dalton workshops, I am always amazed how much valuable information I gain from each one.”

Steve Alliestsor

“Erik has a great pace of teaching! The teach, hands on, then review segment order helps the new material “sink in”. The class was fun, stress free and most educational. Thank you!”

Susan Waiz

“Awesome workshop! The stuff I learned will drastically change my practice and my clients will love it. Can’t wait to get my DVDS and learn even more. Loved that there was so much hands on time. Teaching Assistants were extremely helpful and very knowledgeable.”

Diane Thompson

“This is the very first workshop where I remember the techniques a day later. Also one of the few workshops where I can use the techniques immediately. Erik is awesome! Excellent TAs!”

Linda Cifforn

“This has assisted me in taking my practice to the next level. I’m very impressed by all the knowledge Erik has brought to the conference. Thank you to all the staff of TAs who were so patient in showing us all the moves.”

Phyllis Bartholomy

“The entire group was knowledgeable, approachable and made the session fun and comfortable. Great set up, timing and organization. Love how Erik teaches with no ego. Comfortable discussing the mistakes he learned from and shares the credit. Love his sense of humor!”

Sheri Wenthen

“Great class. Wonderful instructions, visuals and lots of assistants! Best class I have ever had!”

Ruth Hoopes

“I have only been doing massage for two years and this is my first class I’ve taken. In two years I have been pretty complacent in what I’ve done… FooFoo massages. I can’t thank you enough for renewing my interest in wanting to really get to the root of the problem. I am also about 2 months into doing personal training and I am really excited to read and watch more DVDs of your work. I hope to continue to grow. Thank you for making my first CE class a blessing to my life and hopefully a blessing to my clients.”

Brett Kleespies

“This technique/therapy has already helped my practice, but being here and doing the hands on makes a huge difference. Love the teachers and everything you guys do. Thank you!”

Angela Medina

“The Erik Dalton seminar was excellent. It was too much to absorb in the short time, but hopefully with the assistance of the workbooks, I can remember more of it.
Erik and his assistants were very informative and helpful and made the seminar fun.
The registration process was great too. The customer service was excellent. They were eager to answer any and all questions. Thank you all for a terrific learning experience. I hope to attend more of your seminars in the future.”

Candy M L

“OMG!! It was AWESOME! The Class was great and I totally needed a change of pace in my life… It was a GREAT weekend. Thank you so much for making it happen! THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!! :)”

Kimberly ‘Kimmy “

“Exceptional techniques that can be used immediately! So easy on both the bodywork therapist and client.”

Sarah

” I can’t wait to get back and utilize the knowledge and experience with my clients. I definitely plan on registering for the Costa Rica workshop! ”

Tim

“Thank you for your effective manual therapy techniques and all all you contibute to our profession. The best workshop I have ever been a part of!”

Susan

“The first CEU class I have ever attended where questions were answered and the instruction was fully interactive. I learned a lot. A very enjoyable experience.”

Alma I

“The Costa Rica class this spring has changed my practice. My clients love the new techniques and how great they feel for a longer period of time. It was my 3rd time attending your class, and your techniques are becoming 2nd nature for me. Thank you. And It was good to get away from reality and take a step back to do some meditation and reflection too.

Thank you”
