Calling All Massage Organizations: 911

October 28, 2013

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...

March 14, 2012

Last week, the Federation of State Massage Therapy Boards presented their long-awaited proposal for a new national continuing education approval program. They are calling it Maintenance of Core Competencies – or MOCC for short. As I indicated in my previous post, this proposal not only failed to deliver on the original promises made by...

Kudos, and a Few Thumps on the Head

November 13, 2011

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...

Showing Up

August 31, 2011

I read a very interesting article by Simon Yisrael Feuerman titled, Final Lesson: You Don’t Get an A for Just Showing Up. While this article is written for educators, it’s applicable for practitioners. Feuerman states, “You do not get an A in life for just showing up and complying or even for cooperating. You...

CE Providers: Expenses Going Up, Income Coming Down

August 27, 2011

In January of this year, I blogged Continuing Education Providers: Sink or Swim, and followed up that one with the report from the meeting convened by the NCBTMB, where profession leaders were invited to give input into the revamping of their Approved Provider program. Last week at the wonderful annual meeting of the AFMTE,...

Report from the AFMTE Annual Meeting

I’ve just returned from the second annual meeting of the Alliance for Massage Therapy Education in Charleston, SC.  It was an excellent gathering from start to finish. There were keynote speakers throughout the weekend, daily opportunities for those present to give input into the initiative on teacher standards the Alliance is undertaking, informative continuing...

Caring, Courage and Rock and Roll

Caring, Courage and Rock and Roll

Lao Tzu said “From caring comes courage.”I discovered deeper meaning to this famous truth in, of all places, the Rock and Roll Capital of the World.  I had the great fortune to spend some time with an intimate group of dedicated and committed massage therapists and other healthcare providers to learn more about communicating...

Assume the Position

August 2, 2011
Assume the Position

   A few days ago I was going through security at the airport, on a great high after sharing a fantastic infant massage teacher certification course.  As I’m making my way through the line, I automatically take off my shoes, then unpack mycomputer and push everything onto the belt.  Just as automatic, I walked right into...

World Massage Festival: A Great Time!

July 18, 2011

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. We certainly did! This year’s Festival was held on the beautiful campus of Western Carolina University in...

A Sermon on the Science of Massage

June 24, 2011

This isn’t one of my rants about massage research–although that’s definitely a sermon I plan to keep on preaching. 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...
