Testimonials (see Testimonials page for more) 

"Last year I attended Touch-Learn's massage for babies with special needs and last month I did my first one on one course with a mum of a child with special needs.
It went very well and the knowledge I'd gained from the course and the information I could refer to in the folder ensured that I was well prepared and I felt I came across confident and professional, so I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for putting together such a great course." Gina E
