"Since cervical ligaments aren't composed of contractile tissue, I am not clear about what you suggest your are doing physiologically when you "release" them. Can you explain what you mean by "releasing" the ligaments?Thanks"

Hi Whitney, glad to see you here. I met you at the New England retreat last March. Have you been invited back this year? I want to learn better assessment skills and your session was a big eye opener for me. I have a lot to practice. Also, how's the DVD series coming? I'm excited to see them. Be well, and I look forward to learning from you again.

We went ahead and set the theme for 2011 as "Research & Education Are Our Future!" If you have ideas let me know and I'll create them into reality.

Great. I sent the info on to Kelly.

If you could recommend a few more, that would be awesome.

I'm doing great. Thanks for asking.

What are up to these days? Still in Alaska?

I need some reviewers for a new pathology project I'm working on.

Criteria are that they are pathology instructors at a massage school and know how to work with Track Changes.

Can you hook me up?

Hi Whitney,

Sounds like we need to set you up for a research class at the 2011 Festival. The Masage Therapy Foundation will be the Institution of the Year and you can MC a Research Symposium. Given that much time you can have studies done and polls created to attain all the info you can handle. And with so many people participating, you'll get a better feel for the information.
