The Financial Health of Our Organizations: AMTA

This is a follow-up to my blog of June 19 about AMTA’s fiscal responsibility. In the next couple of months I will be reporting on the financial condition of all our non-profit professional organizations.



Someone from AMTA asked me why I didn’t pick on ABMP, and the short answer is, they are a not a non-profit organization. When an organization holds itself out as non-profit, the membership (and the public) has a right to know. Incidentally, I am a member of both… Continue

Massage Therapy Bill in Michigan

Now the MI passed massage bill, im curious to know if anyone has gotten any flack from the cities, about needing to still get a permit to work in that city. As we know, the law went into effect immediately, and you no longer have to get a permit. I talked to my state rep, and they said cities shouldnt be charging for permits. They also told me, if cities have a problem with it, they should call the State Attorney Generals office, and they will tell them. So who has this problem?

Gym or no Gym for Low Back Pain?

While it could be assumed that people with back pain should not be exercising frequently, a new study by Robert Kell, professor of exercise physiology at the University of Alberta, found that working with weights four days a week provided a significant decrease in the amount of pain and improved quality of life. In the study, groups of 60 men and women with chronic low back pain exercised with weights in two, three or four-day weekly programs, or not at all. Their progress was measured over 16… Continue

Why do so many therapists avoid "belly work"?

I've found many workshop participants are uncomfortable performing hands-on abdominal work, i.e., pelvic and respiratory diaphragm releases and sometimes even superficial belly techniques. This seems particularly true when working with pregnant clients/patients. Do you feel belly-work is under-emphasized in bodywork trainings? Does the area hold too much emotion or possibly too intimate for some? I've written a short e-newsletter & posted a video showing some basic, but useful structural… Continue

NCBTMB Advanced Certification Process is a Bumpy Road

The National Certification Board hit a bump in the road this weekend when Whitney Lowe resigned from the Advanced Certification Task Force, citing differences of opinion over how the project should proceed.



In a letter to NCB staff and fellow Task Force members, Lowe acknowledged the effort that has been put forth during the process, and expressed his concern about the timeline of the process, which he feels is being rushed to the detriment of the project.



His resignation… Continue

Seeking "Sister" organizations to help Himalayan Healers, Nepal...

Namaste everyone,



I am hopeful of establishing "Sister" relationships with at least 20 locations, nationwide by the New Year. If you have any suggestions, contacts, or interest, please let me know. In particular I am hopeful of connecting with massage therapists, spas, yoga centers, health professionals, coffee shops, and other grass-roots community organizations. Also, classrooms would be a wonderful success.



My intention behind the "Sister" relationships is to raise… Continue

Common mistakes made in building websites for a massage business

OK I am a website geek! I have been creating websites since 1999 when I started my site www.thebodyworker.com and have since created www.massage-career-guides.com to help provide as much information as I can about everything related to massage.



Some of the common mistakes people make when creating a website are:

  • Choosing a domain name that does not reflect what you do and where…
