Report from the AFMTE Annual Meeting

I spent last weekend in toasty Tucson, AZ at the Alliance for Massage Therapy Education annual meeting, and for the third year in a row since this organization started, it was one of the best things I have ever attended. There were quite a few new people attending this year, and attendance was up...

The Elap Flap Continues

June 2, 2012
By

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...

A Betrayal of Trust

May 5, 2012
By

Any time one of the major organizations in the massage field tries to fire up a project that will “advance the profession”, I get awfully suspicious. When a group of them get together to do something on the big scale, I go on full nuclear alert. That’s the case right now with a dubious...

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...

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...

Make Your Voice Heard

Our industry is at a critical juncture. As we move into a “full-fledged” profession with the various stakeholders (AFMTE, AMTA, ABMP, FSMTB, MTF, NCBTMB), actually attempting to play well with each other and work in harmony for the greater good of the profession, now is the time to make sure your voice is heard!...

It Was a Very Good Year

December 18, 2011
By

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...

Kudos, and a Few Thumps on the Head

November 13, 2011
By

The year is winding down; all the award shows have been on television lately, and I’d like to give out a few of my own, along with a thump or two on the head of those who need it. Call me a critic! These are my opinions only and should not be construed as...
