ELAP: Now that I’ve read the whole thing…

February 16, 2014

I spent most of my spare time during the past week reading the Final Report and the Entry-Level Education Blueprint of the ELAP. Again, I will offer my appreciation for the collaboration of the Coalition and the team that actually performed the work on this. It was a big project and obviously, people took...

The Gift of Human Touch

October 24, 2013
The Gift of Human Touch

Meet Cleo, Cleo is a rescue just like the other two “Fur-Children” we have in our home.  Cleo was dumped somewhere in our neighborhood and found our house nearly starved to death and wounded.   We took her to the vet, cared for her and healed her and the vet thought she was somewhere between...

My Thoughts on the Election 2012

October 28, 2012

I’m taking a break from talking about massage this week. I’ve always hated election time. All the constant television ads, telemarketing phone calls from political action committees, and all the rest of it. And now that we have social media to vent our opinions on, it just seems to be magnified a thousandfold. I...

It’s All About Me

August 5, 2012

It’s all about me, so here’s my wishlist for the profession. It’s difficult to place these in order of importance, because some of them depend on each other, and in my little corner of massage, they’re all important.

The Snake Oil Medicine Show

July 21, 2012

There’s nothing earth-shaking in the world of massage politics on my radar this week, so I’m just going to make a few observations. I know that I am about to step on more than a few toes here, but it must be said. I’ve got a few thousand massage therapists in my social networks...

The Elap Flap Continues

June 2, 2012

Earlier this week I received the ELAP (Entry-Level Analysis Project) Description from ABMP. I’ve been blogging about this for several weeks, first because I was upset that it was shrouded in secrecy; then last week because I finally got word of who is serving on this work group. While that information didn’t exactly smooth...

The Loss of A Great Educator

The Loss of A Great Educator

On May 12, 2012 at 1:56 pm, Dianne Polseno left us. We have lost a dear colleague and icon in the massage industry. I have known Dianne for more than 20 years. Our first real “encounter” was when we had to share a room in San Antonio when writing test questions for the NCBTMB....
