Is it 500? 750? 650? 1200? Which number of hours is the winner?

Recently in Massachusetts where I live, we got state licensure for Massage Therapy. (no golf claps here; raucous Yahoo's! will do thank you very much) After a long struggle, and thanks to our wonderful AMTA for funding a serious voice in the state house, we now do not have to a) pay separate fees to every health department in towns we wanted to work (i.e. if you practiced in 3 towns you could expect to pay one town 100, one town 50, one town 250--whatever the extortioners, oops! health dept.… Continue

Hi Lisa!

Would you please participate in the massage survey? Thanks!

http://www.surveymonkey.com/s.aspx?sm=OhBtGlEETUWwi9h5olkCGQ_3d_3d

Please help me compile this information. I'd like more than a 1,000 if possible. Sure it is!
Your participation is MOST appreciated.
Remember you do not have to answer all the questions and Page 2 is "optional". Page two is for those employed only, NOT Self Employed!The survey company automatically includes Page 2 and I was unable to edit or delete. SO it IS OPTIONAL!
Pass it on to your colleagues too.

The intention is to publish this research to assist
Future LMT's, educators, employers and anyone else interested in the statistics of the massage industry!
I want to give you a voice to share your thoughts and experiences.

The Survey will end November 29, 2009

Can we all meet in the middle? The BOK Committee is working to develop a consensus of what a therapist needs to know before beginning work on the public in all states. Ok, this will accomplish every state massage boards' primary purpose,"to protect the public".

Massage School is like basic training, not all the troops are ready when they graduate. Some drop out. Some go on to futher schooling. And some go directly to the workplace and learn by OJT(on the job training).

Our profession is evolving and growng. Layers are beginning to develop into levels. And credentials will follow suit probably. We are finally getting organized to keep growing.

But as we do grow, we must allow others the "respect" to choose their way.
