I recently completed Dr. Jarero's 4 module training on the ASSYST and PRECI-OTS. Let me just say that the PRECI-OTS protocol has changed my practice dramatically in just 3 weeks. My clients are shifting like never before.

I can't tell you how valuable this resource has quickly become to me.       - Melissa Spaulding
