Greetings loyal fans of Hands On Health! My name is Makarita Waiari an
I became certified as a personal trainer in 1996 through the National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM) and earned a degree in Physical Education and Exercise Sport Science from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. I studied massage therapy at the Body Therapy Instititute in Siler City, NC. I hold a Massage and Bodywork Therapy License in North Carolina. I am a member of IDEA, a resource for fitness professionals and enthusiasts, and the American Massage Therapy Association (AMTA). I’ve known Laura since 1995 and she has shown she can put together a continuing education school worth attending. I have taken four of the I-NMT courses: Abdomen/Torso/Breath, Lumbar and Pelvis, Thigh and Lower Extremities, and Thoracic Outlet and Shoulder Mobilizers. I’ve also taken Movement Repatterning and Ethics courses with Bodywork Therapy Seminars.
