"Yeah, just remembered taking a practice exam that had a couple such questions.  But my original comment stands.  I don't think a certification exam should concern itself with anything other than the art and science of massage…"

"Hi Gary! The NCETM I took had some business questions on it, mostly of the variety of the difference between setting up as a sole proprietorship vs. independent contractor vs. employee. That is a tax-related issue and an important one in a…"

Gary W Addis, LMT replied to Kelly Grounds's discussion Business text books in the group Massage Schools
"It escapes me why business questions would be on an exam that purports to certify that a therapist has the knowledge and skills to work on people's body.  On their bodies...not inside their accounting software.  Thank you, you just…"

Medical Massage definition?

I am getting flooded by brochures and emails by places offering Medical Massage Certification.  Is there a definite hour requirement in certain subjects for such a certification now or are all these places putting together their own "Medical Massage Certification" programs?  Are certain states requiring this for hospital work or is this still in its infancy of development?  This is a path I'd like to pursue, but before I invest my time and money I want to make sure I pick the right courses!

How do you face your fears down?

I absolutely love teaching. I used to teach theatre management and theatre history, sometimes directing and acting. But I adore teaching massage most of all. Now I am being offered the position of Director in charge of our campus's massage school.
I'm honored but also fearful. I had been director at a state university's performing arts center. The stress and politics nearly killed me. After a bout with a brain tumor, I chose to switch careers instead of pursuing my PhD and go into massage.…
