“In April 2012, I attended Dr Emily’s Foot and Ankle Level 1 Workshop. It was amazing. I learned a ton that was immediately applicable to the therapeutic ends I was working on with a number of different clients...I worked diligently on implementing and applying the information learned from Dr Emily...She did a superb job of presenting difficult topic matter and delivered us fantastic correctives for the case studies we observed. I’m so thankful to have taken the Barefoot training workshop and look for future opportunities to learn from EBFA!...”

“I first saw Dr Emily at a presentation at Midest Mania in 2010. The material she presented was really interesting and she did an excellent job of presenting...I was so excited when she did her Barefoot Training Specialist® Workshop in Chicago and I loved attending another seminar of hers. It is easy to see how passionate Dr Emily is about barefoot training and how much she wants to help people. She is a very talented doctor and the courses she teaches are extremely helpful to anyone looking to find more information about foot function.”

“One of the best courses I have taken in my over 25 years of attending education, in fitness. Not only was the information fascinating, smart and practical, Dr Emily Splichal was so engaging and had an entertaining personality...I cannot speak enough great things about her education! Thank you Dr Emily!!!”

“The Barefoot Training Specialist® Workshop is the only one of its type I’ve taken anywhere...To say I was excited at what I learned from the Barefoot Training Specialist® Workshop is an understatement. In my research I often come across studies about the knees and hip or about the feet and knees, but I have yet to find a more completely integrated approach by a “conventional” practitioner than what Dr Splichal has begun. She is the first clinician I know who has begun the process of tying the trunk to the pelvis to the knee to the ankles and feet, and I applaud her foresight and tireless enthusiasm.
Thanks for your work Dr Splichal!”
