Hi Jacqueline (and everyone else),
thank you so much for responding and volunteering to be a part of the pilot study, but the power of the internet is such that I had it filled literally within a few hours of putting it out there. I do also have a waiting list in case some people cannot complete it. So, I do not need anyone else right now, but will let you know if I do.
Again, thank you so much for volunteering!

I'd like to volunteer for your pilot study. I just sent you an email at the address you provided below.

Hi there!
I'm so excited to be a featured speaker at the World Massage Conference this year. I'd love for you to join me.
It starts this Monday so if you haven’t registered already, you can do it now…

This is a "virtual " conference. That means that it’s done online (and simulcast by phone if you’re not near a computer). You just log into the website and through the marvels of technology you are listening to some of the greatest educators from around the world live.
It’s super convenient. You can listen from your home or office. And if you miss any presentations, recorded replays are available to listen to online or to download to your MP3 player.
You can IM the presenter questions during their live presentations and can chat with most presenters personally in the chat room immediately after the event. This year the focus is more centered on techniques and treatments and there are some great videos associated with almost every presentation.
If you register now for the June 7th and 8th conference, you’ll get complimentary access to the Fall 2010 conference. It’s over 50 hours of continuing education. You can get free certificates of completion for CE purposes and if you need NCBTMB certificates specifically, these are available for a small one-time fee of only $25 per conference.
Reserve your place now by clicking this link…

You can download a printable schedule for the Spring 2010 from the home page of the site. I'm going to be joined by some of the top authors, educators and thought leaders afrom around the world:. Here’s just a partial list of some of the 2010 presenters:
Eric Dalton - The 42-Pound Head; Sandy Fritz - Documentation for Better Outcomes; Andrew Biel – Trail Guide to the Human Body; Til Luchau – Banishing Headaches; Dr. Kerry D’Ambrogio - Muscle Energy Technique; Mary Nelson - Founder of La Stone Therapy; Robert Schleip - International Fascial Congress Report; Laura Allen - Ethics in Massage Therapy; Doug Alexander - Nerve Mobilization; Thomas Myers - Anatomy Trains; Dr Leon Chaitow - Research in Massage and Bodywork; Natalie Celia - Bamboo Fusion; Dr Joe Muscolino - Assessment through Palpation; Bruce Baltz - Active Isolated Stretching; Cherie Sohnen-Moe - Women in Bodywork Busines; Ruth Werner - Women in Bodywork Business; Diana Thompson - Record Keeping for MTs; Whitney Lowe - Orthopedic Assessment; Michael Buck - Vedic Thai Yoga; Ben Benjamin – Treating Low Back Pain; and many, many more…
For complete information and to register go here now:

One last thing, they are doing a draw for $1,000 in prizes: Massage equipment and supplies including a new massage table package. If you register soon, you may still be eligible.
I'll see you at the conference,
Joe Muscolino
PS Oh yes, one more thing... Feel free to forward this email to your friends and colleagues. This is something they should know about.

my timeline is probably 1-2 months. I actually need people to do the Muscular System Manual, 3ed. or the Muscle and Bone Palpation Book because the Kinesiology textbook will have a new edition out this Autumn, so it would make more sense to hold on that one until I have the new edition for people to do.
