January 21, 2012
By

As usual, the opinions on my blog are my opinions and not to be construed as the opinions of anyone else. I  haven’t had much to say on the legislative front for a few months…when the legislators go home for the summer, not much is happening; then there tend to be shorter sessions in...

December 18, 2011

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...

Massage: The Big Picture

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...

Report from the AMTA National Convention

October 24, 2011
By

I have just returned from attending the AMTA National Convention in Portland, Oregon along with about 1400 fellow therapists, and I must say I believe it was the best one yet!

August 8, 2011
By

  One of my fondest dreams is coming true! For several years I’ve been preaching the sermon on my blog that I wanted our national massage organizations to play nice together and it is happening!

‘Tis the Season

August 7, 2011
By

No, I’m not talking about Christmas…although the retail world seems to force it down our throats earlier every year, it’s not quite time for that. I’m talking about politics, particularly the politics of massage. I’ve had a good little hiatus this summer from reporting on all the political happenings, but it’s that time of...
