A Word From Our President

CIAO Studios is LIVE!
Since opening CIAO Seminars in 1999, I've always dreamed of bringing our courses to every therapist in the country and finally I can. CIAO is now offering live CEUs through live streaming! With the opening of our new facility, CIAO Studios, there is no need or added expense of travel. Registrants can take these courses individually from their own home or as a group within their rehab department. Each person will be able to interact with the instructor during the live event.

I truly enjoy taking care of people who dedicate their lives to taking care of others. "Save the Therapists!"

- Lesley Mateer, President, CIAO
