Top Secret Standards Project: No News is NOT Good News

May 22, 2012
By

I’ve been on vacation…I took a deliberate ten-day break from the Internet and from all the politics of massage while I was enjoying my annual sojourn in Ireland. I didn’t visit any Internet cafes. I didn’t read the paper and I didn’t watch the news. I left my cell phone at home, too. It...

Behind Closed Doors

April 30, 2012
By

From the title, you might think this blog is about The Client List, the trashy new show on the Lifetime Channel that gives massage therapy a black eye. No such luck; the event I am referring to is the upcoming Leadership Summit #2, set to take place next week in Chicago. The first Leadership...

Winging It & Wishing?

Purple_Luna_Moth_Fairy_Wings_by_customfairywings

If you’re my ‘friend’ on Facebook, you might have seen my post about the homeless lady named Teressa who is often outside my office… I mentioned about how I was wondering whether she has the ability to make a change in her circumstances, and if she does have the mental and physical capabilities, then...

MOCC Proposal: Dis-Organized Chaos

April 15, 2012
By

I’ve been criticizing the Maintenance of Core Competency (MOCC) proposal from the Federation of State Massage Therapy Boards since the moment it landed on my radar, and I haven’t changed my mind. I think it’s a terrible plan that doesn’t serve any good purpose other than increasing the coffers of the FSMTB. In its...

Bridging the Gap; Referring Other CAM Disciplines

Bridging the Gap; Referring Other CAM Disciplines

If you know of something that may help a client, are you inclined to share that information? (I HOPE the answer to this question was YES.) Because the truth is, as a healthcare professional, your client looks to you for advice and direction to not only alleviate symptoms but to provide long term solutions...

MOCC-ERY

March 14, 2012
By

Last week, the Federation of State Massage Therapy Boards presented their long-awaited proposal for a new national continuing education approval program. They are calling it Maintenance of Core Competencies – or MOCC for short. As I indicated in my previous post, this proposal not only failed to deliver on the original promises made by...

When Changes Happen Remember NOT to Panic!

Seems like lots of reaction in February and more to come in March!  Some reacting is good!  WE all react at times sometimes reaction causes change like the recent Legislative changes in TN, IA and FL.  When change occurs I have found over the years my quick “pop-offs” haven’t always produced the best results...
