One week after the first ever American Massage Conference, and I am still trying to wrap my mind around what happened last week!

Civil Discourse

May 14, 2011
By

Civil discourse, according to Wikipedia, is engagement in conversation intended to enhance understanding. I’ve seen the good, the bad, and the ugly, when it comes to that. The good took  place recently at the MAAP meeting I attended with the folks at the NCBTMB. It was a great meeting of intelligent people who were...

Separating Business from Pleasure…

In the past weeks, I have had two emails asking me advice. In both instances the Therapist is asking me how I would suggest handling friends and family as a client, especially when they sometimes pay less for the same work, and often do not show up for appointments on time. I can certainly...

You Say To-may-to, I Say To-mah-to

April 24, 2011
By

Actually, I’m from the south, where we often say “mater.” A ‘mater sandwich should be on white bread, slathered with an artery-clogging amount of mayonnaise, and eaten standing over the kitchen sink so it can run down your chin and drip appropriately. Everybody has their opinions…I’m out here regularly expressing mine, and not everybody...
