My goodness, sir, when do you work on your clients? (she said, playfully). It seems like I have seen your name on every discussion I look at. I feel like an accidental voyeur or inadvertent stalker. Lol.
How is information exchange taking place? How much information is being proceesed per second? what coordinates all the body sytems? What coordinates one human being with his environment and in turn that environment with the greater cosmic body as barely understood by the greatest minds in physics.
I just stumbled into a forum thread "Flat Back Syndrome".
Your thoughts? The MT could use your advice, I think. Was posted on the 10th, and only two comments. I suggested TPs in the iliopsoas and abs pulling the hips into anterior tilt. Any advice yo ucan give the MT?
Hi Gordon, Thanks for the friend request. I just discovered this site and became fascinated with your thread "Just Dumping" on the how the Massage/Bodywork profession is perceived by the general public and other health professionals. It's a subject about which I have much to say. As one who has been doing this work for over 25 years but who just finally jumped through the hoops for the license I am experiencing a very rude awakening as to the realities of this field as a business and as a profession. I shall expand my thoughts as time goes on. I especially welcome the input of successful male MTs as I am discovering that obtaining bread and butter work in this field may not be in my cards. Spas and health clubs are not even responding to my resume, or if they do then it doesn't even progress to the practical part of working on someone to experience my skills.
I gather you're a martial artist. Me too: 1st Degree Black Belt in Kendo, Training in Chi Gong, Bagwa, Tai Chi and some Aikido.
Thanks for the friend invite, Gordon. I was enjoying reading your posts, ie: "Just Dumping", and just realized you are in Anchorage, also! I look forward to reading more of the discussions going on here, and glad I found this site.
Gordon, docs have a tendency to name that which they have little or no experience with as fibromyalgia. True FMS like RA can be very debilitating to the sufferer and it isn't all in their head; it truly is a myofacial pain, yes it does help releasin the trigger points but more helpful is a lifestyle change. My FMS clients are on a 6 week program that has them journalize their activities and track their pain levels and onset occurences weekly. We incorporate several holistic health modalities besides just massage into the treatment regime.
