We sat down with Rachel and she answered some of our in-depth questions about massage. Check out the interview!
Why did you choose massage as a career?
I love working with my hands, and working with people. I knew from early on that a 9-5 office scenario wasn’t right for me, and massage as a career allows for a degree of freedom and flexibility. (Many of the LMTs that I work with have other full-time careers as dancers, yoga teachers, actors, etc.) I work with…Continue

Depending on what you read, the ankle is a combination of two or three joints. Some say the ankle is the true ankle joint or talocrural joint and the subtalar joint. Others include the distal tibiofibular joint in the term…Continue
I’ve spent the past day or so reviewing the CAMTC Sunset Review Report…at over 200 pages, it’s a narrative of the who, what, where, when, and why of the organization, which is now in its fifth year.

I came upon a statistic which showed that in the December of 2013, Google garnered a 67.3% share of search engine queries, while Bing (18.2%) and Yahoo (10.8%) trailed considerably. My favorite search engine, Google Scholar, did not make the list. Google has…Continue

I just signed up for the site. My name is Karen and I am looking forward to being able to learn from other massage therapists. I am a recent graduate, May 2013. I would love any tips for a new graduate in the field. It gets kind of isolating out here once you are out of school. I have my own studio and things are going pretty good. I also do seated chair massage at some offices. I love to continue learning new techniques and just want to grow in knowledge and…Continue
We get more and more benefits, the more and more "likes" we get on our business pages. Now, therapists who live really near each other might not want to like the pages of competition, but what about therapists nationwide? I'm in SW Michigan, and so if a California therapist likes my FB business page and I theres, it won't affect us competitionwise, but it will increase the status of both FB pages. So, my FB business page is…Continue
