Southpaw MSE has created a new state-of-the-art showroom highlighting our equipment and is sponsoring an MSE Basic Training course at our facility in Moraine, OH. Training is designed to give the participant "Core Concepts," leading to the understanding and practice of a Multi-Sensory Dynamic Systems Approach. The courses and requirements will be geared to giving the student the knowledge and experience necessary to have a solid foundation in the Multi-Sensory Dynamic Systems Technique.
