"I opened my medical spa one year after attending AmSpa's workshop. I still have the binder on my desk within easy reach! I have found all of their recommendations including business partners, products, and best med spa practices to be right on. I just keep going back for more!"

"We never would have gotten through the quagmire of legal, insurance, compliance, planning, accounting, personnel, the list goes on... without AmSpa and Alex. We were above projections for year one and year two is off to a fierce start."
