Jessica, if you ever have questions about the State's requirements, here's a link to their website:

No idea, it's not required yet though.

So than why does Bancroft send in your hours to the state?

Currently you do not need to take any continuing education to maintain your license in Massachusetts.  That will change some time in the future, but it is not required yet.

I am so confused about the state wanting your CEU's. I take a class at Bancroft and I fill out a form to have my CEU's sent to the state. Than I take a class with The Bodywork Project and they look at me like I have 2 heads bc they have no idea what I am talking about. Does anyone know what we are so post to be doing?

The meetings are now on mondays.  The sunday is puzzling though :)

Interesting and thank you for reporting back on that.

 

BTW: Did you know 1/24 and 2/28 are Mondays and 3/27 is on a Sunday. At least in my calendar. Have I slipped into the twilight zone? I will ask Michael.

Re: Jamie's question regarding Kunye massage, the Kunye people did not show up for the meeting so details as to what it is, and whether Kunye massage meets the Massachusetts definition of massage (Shiatsu, and other types of bodywork are not considered "massage" in MA) or whether their students will be able to be licensed is apparently still uncertain.  The agenda for the next scheduled Board meeting on 1/24 has not been released yet, so no details as to whether this will be addressed soon.

Just letting everyone know that the 12/17 meeting of the board is listed as cancelled on the website. Happy Holidays.

I'm interested in hearing about today's Board meeting from anyone who was in attendance. (I'm especially curious about the Kunye massage discussion, as I stumbled across the Tibetan school's website not too long ago and was really intrigued by it.)

I think it's great that the monthly agendas are now being posted online on the Board's website, but what about the meeting minutes? Are they available to the public as well?
