Lara Evans Bracciante, the Massage and Bodywork Professionals webmaster, has kindly allowed information about CE classes to be posted in the Continuing Education group on this site.


Please feel free to join the group if you'd like to be kept abreast of CE class information.


Here's the URL for the group:

Thank you Earl. There has been discussion about this with Lara as folks I tired of being Spamed with CE classes being posted on every group page. It is so against the guideline.

FYI: I have deleted a discussion advertising a seminar/workshop. In the guidelines section of it states the following:

Advertising is not permitted. All advertising/solicitation posts for products, services, or money will be removed. If someone is advertising, please report the issue. Understandably, you may want to get the word out regarding your offerings and services; Following are your options to do so:
* On your own page, you can list your offerings and a "for more information" website link, but do not include prices.
* You can blog about your offerings, as this is optional for readers, but again, please do not include prices.
* Defer from sending direct messages and/or group emails to groups or site members promoting your offerings. This will be considered spam.
* And finally, please do not include your offerings as a forum topic or group discussion, or create a group based on your advertising agenda.

Did some work this weekend at a softball tournament. I was amazed at how many guys had problems with their wrist flexors @ the origin. I have been a anatomy/palpatory/kinesiology instructor for 2 years and talked about pictures and golfer's elbow but to actually see how prevelant it is another subject all together. Hopefully, i will get atleast one client out of the deal.

Hi William, welcome to the group! That's a good question. I had put my thoughts on this into this article. I'm interested to hear other people's definitions.
