THE SCAPULA: THE MAST AND SAILS OF THE BODY

This is the final installment of my series on Posture. A few weeks ago, I describedposture as the absolute need for stability.

FB: IMHO

It’s no secret that I’m a FB addict. Well, maybe that’s a strong word. I couldn’t run my business, write my blogs, teach my classes, take care of my home and husband and dog, and everything I do if I spent all day on FB. I usually sign on around 5 am every morning while I’m having my coffee and the house is quiet, and read what everybody’s been up to and make a few posts of my own. Then I check in for a minute whenever I need a break from paperwork or laundry throughout the day, and since I…

The Leaders of the Massage Therapy Profession

Last week, the leaders of all the major organizations representing the massage therapy profession came together in St. Louis for a Massage Therapy Leadership Summit.

I have personally prayed for this to happen for a long time, and was thrilled that it took place. Rick Rosen, Executive Director of the AFMTE, shared this photo on my Facebook page. I of course spread it through my networks, and it prompted a question from…

THE FOUNDATION OF YOUR POSTURE | INJURY PREVENTION BEGINS AT YOUR FOOT

Better Walking with Somatics Exercises

Hi, I'm Ed Barrera, Hanna Somatic Educator and founder of Gravity Werks and I teach people "online" how to overcome physical pain, reduce stress & tension and recover quickly from injury using safe, simple tools known as somatics exercises.

 

As a 10 year practitioner, I finally figured out that all the movement classes I had been teaching had to be recorded.  If only I had known that 10 years ago... 'course I was a bit green then.  Now I have 150 movement classes and each…

One Word

I was wondering today how my clients would describe me in one word.  In a small group that I am a part of, a friend of mine asked each of us to write one word to describe us.  She then took photos of our hands.  I'm not sure what she is doing with it but she is a talented artist so I'm sure it will be interesting when she is done. 



My word… Continue

Daniel, Looks for parallels in understanding bone washing lomilomi, A call to task is the echo here.

Harry, the use of acid/alkaline confuses me. Is this the actual translation of the Hawaiian terms or is it a representation of a Hawaiian concept? Blood pH is regulated to stay within the narrow range of 7.35 to 7.45, making it slightly…

The first thousand. . .

I recently posted the last of my flyers from a box of 1,000.  As mentioned earlier in my blog, www.sfmassagecoach.com, I am a huge fan of having flyers as a component of any massage marketing campaign.  The flyers, with four pull-tabs each, went up on signposts around Lake Merritt, in every Starbucks in the East Bay, at Berkeley and Oakland Whole Foods, and just about everywhere else that I frequent.

 

So now I would like to report on the… Continue

Bone washing what is that?

Hi ! offering now, the expansion of the idea of bone washing as the technique for clearing cherished wounds........ One thing is true in bodywork. there are franchises for all techniques.  Actually not this one. deep tissue or 'zero balancing' can seem like such, but the approach here is the balance of breath, touch, intention, and holding the space focused on the concept of the authority of the spiral. ... wich is best understood as the drain of the sink. or tolet.  when that  law of…
