Im not sure if anyone comes on here anymore, but... I wonder now with Covid 19,, what is everyone seeing with trigger points? Do you have any new information for us? Any new ideas if covid is creating triggers?
Hi Boris, I'm leaving this on your wall rather than starting a forum discussion because I know how that will go...I have some questions for you about trigger points. I have 2 female clients, one 20 and one 23 years old. They each have what I think is a monster of a trigger point in their right upper trapezoid on top of their shoulders. Both of them have a burning sensation in the skin at times, which from your articles I think means there is a trigger point in the skin. Do you have any suggestions on how to treat that? And each of them have a really hard nodule in there - it feels like a hard pea and it doesn't move. For each of them, pressure is very painful. Is this the permanent change you talk about that can't be treated? Or is it a trigger point I can treat? Please help! I'd like to improve this situation for them if I can. Or at least give them some answers! Thanks Boris!!
I'm wanting to know what I can expect in California with billing to insurance companies. What makes it flow the smoothest. I've been in the field for 20 years but mostly in WA where all insurance billing was simple and easy. What does the insurance company want or is it easier to have the client pay me and I write them a bill for their insurance company. In WA this was not needed either. thanks
I tried searching on internet for " vascular diseases protocol professors Zabludovsky" and didn't find much.
where should I look to find more?
Do you have someone working with you who has grant proposal writing skills?
There should be at least 3 places where you might want to look for funding on project like this specially since there's already some data (???)
What do you think of Paul Standley work / publications any use ?
I am right now doing some "footwork"/ "quality control " for Dr T. Findley so if I can help feel free to bounce ideas....
Hi Boris, thankyou for your comments on the energy work thread. Your comment" with or without complete understanding of its microcosmic nature" is very welcome and inline with most therapists on here who will continue to practice energy work with or without the support of the scientific community.
Their have been many bitterly debated threads regarding the use of energy work by massage therapists on MBP that has hopefully led to a greater understanding between those for and against its use.
At the event I could also put some promotional materials out for all the LMT's to view. This year I am not promoting as much and I anticipate a smaller group. So far I have a total of about 30 that have RSVPed.
If you decide you would like to send some materials, you can send them to my office and Richard Lancaster who is my Director of Operations. We would need them by August 20th.
Attention: Richard Lancaster

I viewed your website and think you have some great educational materials that I would love to help you promote. Check out my website www.bodytech2u.com. I am currently operating in Jacksonville Fl but I have been planning the last few years to open in other territories. I am very big with the local and surrounding hotels. We work with many of them directly on a corporate level. We attract a lot of business travelers that primarily book massage for relief of tension, headaches, stress from traveling, and other problems associated with traveling a lot.
This link http://www.bodytech2u.com/ordersuppliesonline.html is a landing page that is linked from all my LMT's "Professional Page" (their personal page to view their appointments & commissions etc, etc.). This landing page offers products and services from companies I team up with at a group or discounted rate. Is that something you would be interested in?
Right now I only have the Jacksonville territory operating but we are getting ready to start expanding so there could be some potential sales for you. In time I would also like to have group (my team) CE classes.
If you are interested please send me your URL link, and the content you would like displayed. I will copy and paste. If you have a logo and/or a photo I could also place it with your content. On the landing page I do ask to offer our LMT's some sort of discount and directions on how to place their orders.
Interested? If this is something you would like to do please email your logo, photo and content to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you, and I hope this can help your sales.

I would love to have Massage Educators attend my party/event at the Hyatt. Last year we had vendors and educators. This year a little more low key but with a lot more table cross-training time and demonstrations.
