“I am both a Certified Athletic Trainer and AZ Licensed Massage therapist and I was impressed and inspired by Davonna's instruction for her sports massage class. She provided simple, efficient and detailed knowledge which allowed even myself as an LMT of close to 15 years and ATC of 11 years to learn a little something new. You better bet I will be taking more classes instructed by her. She blended both career worlds effortlessly and as someone who has these two licenses it was refreshing to find a class such as this that are applicable to both fields. Thank you Davonna!”

“Davonna is very knowledgeable in sports massage. I was fortunate enough to take her class on Sports Massage and Sports-Specific Treatments. She has a way of engaging the class and providing information in easy to understand formats. It's rare to find instructors who "have the goods" and have a fun and educational way of educating a diverse audience.”
