Re: List forum glitches HERE!

It's been a while since I last visited this site, and I still can't view active topics. Maybe it just doesn't like me?

Re: Co-Worker Smells Like A Rose

I had a client once who wore a perfume that reminded me of a specific time and place in my life. I don't remember much about that client (I don't even remember if the client was male or female), but that smell was so pleasant, and so utterly distracting. I don't remember what the smell was, anymore,...

Re: If you couldn't do massage anymore...

I'd throw a bunch of time into music (singing, pick up a new instrument, actually learn some musical theory), and spend more time learning how to make my own clothes. My husband would support me as I recover from being deprived of my chosen career.

Re: What About Bob?

The only one who can really determine whether or not this would be beneficial is you. I've met clients who get weekly massages, while some are happy to get a massage no more than twice per year. Are you looking to go in for relaxation or therapeutic purposes?

Re: The Field

I think part of what will help us determine the field is whether we want to be a profession of tradition or medicine. Do we want to follow the practice because that's how it's always been done, or do we want to partake in the latest research? Should we leave research to the scientists whose lives co...

Not a full week after requesting my resume with the main chiro/controlling partner, they put an ad on craigslist looking for an MT. This is without ever responding to my resume submission or anything. So in...

Re: Considering California certification instead of national

I still can't fathom why my National Certification isn't acceptable, though. The national certification offered by the NCBTMB is not a national certification in the sense that it's offered by a nationally governing body that governs massage therapy for the entire country (there is NO governing body...

That's a difficult question to answer. I could just show you mine, but I don't like mixing my real life with online.

I must say, the only problem that I've had with Voice is that, if I miss a call, the voicemail goes straight to my inbox instead of my phone. This could be an issue with my phone, though. It's about 6 years old.
