Jan Schwartz commented on Valerie Hood's blog post The Corporate Takeover of Massage
"Clearly this is a discussion was started amongst people who do not see, nor want to see, the value in accreditation.  MA may have different rules, but I didn't know we were talking about one state.  Yes, ABHES and NACCAS can accredit…"

"There are 6 regional accreditors, numerous national accreditors and many specialized accreditors, all approved by USDE to be gatekeepers for Title IV. I don't know exactly how many there are, but it's lots more than 7!  In addition to…"

"There is a lot wrong with this post, but I will only focus on one paragraph as an example: "Consider this.  To become accredited costs a school about $40,000, with annual renewal in the tens of thousands.  COMTA is a private company…"

"Lisa, what would you say is your ratio of MC to other methods of assessment? Just curious. I like the idea of asking why an answer was chosen. Even if they say, "I'm guessing," at least you have some good information about where they…"

Thank you Jan. I am very thankful for the opportunity to meet quality, dedicated professionals like yourself. I am also thankful to the AMBP for organizing this forum. What a blessing for all of us to be able to connect and share with each other. We are living in a most wonderful time and I hope we all seize the opportunity to spread the healing energy and connect to the universal fabric of loving kindness that is trying to express itself through our touch, communication and thoughts.
