Re: How many massages in a day?

Wow. I just graduated massage school. I got a gig doing massage at the hospital. My spot is not so busy, so we usually do about 10, although can be up to half-hour massages. I have been enjoying it, because it means I get to study massage techniques and anatomy in between clients. I like the idea of...

Re: I failed my exam three times!

Sometimes it's not about knowledge, but it's about knowing how to TEST. I wonder if there is a program out there that teaches you or prepares you to eliminate answers, make educated guesses etc. to logic through the exam.

There is a chair massage job in the hospital and a spa/studio job to do pregnancy massage, hot stone, and swedish, and I'm very interested in both positions. For my first job(s) what is the most important thing to look for? Any sugge...

Re: Is anyone with MMIP?

I am a thai therapist and I have MMIP and I was told to get it by other thai people because thai and lots of other holistic modalities like cupping are covered. That's why we have it. It is more expensive than the other insurance. I am about to renew mine tomorrow and I'm also intrigued and interest...

Re: The best thing about massage school

To me, the best thing about massage school was the healing space environment and chances for self-development. It really created the ideal environment for me to focus on my own health and self-care, so that I can provide that for others. In my city, it's a college town, so it's a very cerebral, acad...

Re: Greetings from the Middle Country

I passed my MBLEX and now I just have 2 exams to study for and pass for massage school! They are anatomy exams, with lots of origin and insertion. I'm really excited about deepening my bodywork, starting my own practice (I hope), and learning more about Hakomi-style therapy. Hakomi is supposed to be...

Re: Thai yoga Massage - Robert Gardner?

Does anyone have any experience taking classes with Robert Gardner or his 3-hr Reboot treatments? I'm intrigued, and I've taken a bunch of Thai before. It seems more like physical therapy and, this is what makes me gravitate towards it. I want to do something sustainable, but also something that is ...
