We’re Off to See the Wizard

April 17, 2014
By

The Wizard of Oz, that is. AMTA announced a couple of weeks ago that Dr. Mehmet Oz, the undisputed king of daytime television, will be the keynote speaker for this year’s national convention, coming up in Denver in September.

Here’s the Rub

January 19, 2014
By

A couple of different things are bugging me today, so here’s the rub: The NCBTMB referring to their licensing exams as certification exams. There was a period of time when the licensing exams were referred to as the NESL–National Exam for State Licensing. National Certification, as it previously existed, was retired on Dec. 31,...

Report from Seattle and Some Further Explanation

December 12, 2013
By

I was invited to Seattle by Dr. Ravensara Travillian to speak at a fund-raising dinner this past Monday night, to kick off her efforts to get a university-level certificate massage program started. Dr. Christopher Moyer was the other invited speaker, so I felt like I was, as we say in the South, “in high...

Calling All Massage Organizations: 911

October 28, 2013
By

I’ve seen some ups and downs since joining the massage profession about 15 years ago, but never, in all that time, have I been as disgusted and dismayed with one of our organizations as I am today. I feel as if I have a vested interest in all of them, so I have the...
