I subscribe the Massage and Bodywork Magazine but they stoped send it toPortugal without any notice. I payed from last August to this one and didn't receive anything. I contacted them and they say they can send me the money or if i arrange an american or candian adress they will send me there. Can u help me with this?

Mike Hinkle's information is below

My motorhome in Haines, Alaska! You can barely read my company title, "Cruising-America!" Not to be mixed-up with Cruise America Motorhome Rentals.

I was a travel writer getting massage as I traveled, staying at B&B's and campgrounds around the US and Canada for free. In Texas, a massage therapist taught me how to massage. Six months later I was in FL and in school. Six years as a therapist. I now do the World Massage Festival & Massage Therapy Hall of Fame.

Therapists: There is no cost to enter our vending hall and check out the vendors. As a matter of fact we encourage, even the general public to come in, so we can educate them about massage as well. And vendors, there is no charge to add your literature to the attendee bags. It is FREE!!! The Festival is the ONLY convention that does this. Plus the come four years and get the fifth FREE for both therapists and vendors... again, only at The Festival!!!
I take it around to different sites. I am available all year round to help therapists anyway I can. I have a massage magazine at www.massagenews.org and I'm always looking for volunteer writers!
