a community of practitioners
My husband and I have created an iPad and iPhone app for tracking client and visit information in SOAP Note format. Our primary focus is Massage Therapists, Chiropractors, and Physical Therapists, so I would love to get feedback from you, the MT community, about what would make the app more useful and appealing for your practice.
You can check out the app on the…Continue
This past week I was blessed to attend the International Massage Therapy Research Conference for the first time. This event is only held every three years and it was my first time attending. It was held at the Seaport in Boston, a beautiful hotel right on the…Continue

The NCBTMB has decided to call for comments on their latest revisions for the CE/Approved Provider program–something they should have done before they ever unrolled the plan to start with–and I can virtually guarantee they aren’t going to like the responses they receive. I have…Continue

I've been contacted by owners of a new Aquatic Park in the Black Hills of South Dakota. Their new facility has room for a full service Spa but they don't know where to begin looking for a person or persons who would like to be the owners and operaters of the Spa. Where can I put the word out. I think the potential is enormous and IF I was younger and richer, that person would be ME!!! Ideas anyone?

If there were one map of the body for all to follow, a map that showed all areas of injury, trauma, and pain, along with the necessary route to take to eliminate those issues, life would be simple.
I received a new GPS this past Christmas. My old GPS had become unreliable due to a few quirks and I did not have full trust in my iPhone’s GPS, given a few wrong turns along the way. While my new GPS offers me nearly a nearly foolproof ability to find my way around while traveling, it…Continue

I have received the following from the Federation of State Massage Therapy Boards. I personally think they are far off the mark on what they intend to do with continuing education, and with their refusal to consider any joint effort with the NCBTMB to organize and streamline the approval process for the good of all concerned. This is their MOCC-ERY plan redux, and it’s giving me a bad case of acid reflux. The…Continue

Whether you prefer the Bob Dylan original version, or the popular treatment by Peter, Paul & Mary, we have our own version of Blowin’ in the Wind being sung by the leaders of FSMTB and NCBTMB.
My last blog (February 11) focused on problems with regulation of continuing education in the massage profession, and put the spotlight on a comprehensive white paper written by Rick Rosen that offers a innovative solution to a very confusing situation. There’s been a lot of…Continue

Treating someone going through treatment for cancer has become a new interest of mine. Being with a patient and being able to offer support and comfort is a genuine gift. If you know of someone who needs this work, please refer.

In January 2013, I continued my education to work with clients either during or after cancer treatment. The class itself was mainly how to make certain the "client" is safe and what not to do, to prevent lymphedema expecially. I was quite honored to work with a current female client of mine who was recently diagnosed with breast cancer. She was very open with me and willing to show me her double mastectomy and results so far of her reconstructive surgery. In prior conversation with her,…Continue

As I’ve written about on this blog, the NCBTMB has been trying to roll out an “upgraded” scheme to regulate the entire world of continuing education. After all, their stated mission is “To define and advance the highest standards in the massage and bodywork profession.” (Doesn’t that give them free rein to tell the rest of us what to do?) Apparently, NCB wasn’t satisfied with just approving CE providers – now they want to…Continue
