It Was a Very Good Year

December 18, 2011

As I look back over 2011, it was a very good year. For the 8th year in a row, since I first opened my business, I am going to finish the year with a growth in sales and in my bottom line. That’s rather miraculous, considering the unemployment rate in my county has been...

November 5, 2011
By

I was just cruising through my social media sites, and it has reinforced for me something that I’ve known for quite some time about massage therapists: they’re a caring bunch. That’s not exactly a big surprise; after all, our job is helping people feel better. I’d say a certain amount of caring and compassion...

July 18, 2011
By

Champ and I got home from the World Massage Festival this morning, and while I’m tired, I must say it’s that good, satisfying kind of tired, the kind you feel when you’ve really had a great time.

It’s about the basic things that we all ought to know, if we’re calling ourselves massage therapists. I love anatomy and physiology, and the study of pathology is fascinating to me. The human body is...
