Did my research and then had class #2 of 3 for massage therapy for people with fibromyalgia. Ultimately, we learned what a TRUE massage therapist should know: EVERY massage for EVERY person should be tailored to what they need THAT DAY!! The massage therapist should NEVER assume that a patient wants, which really means what the patient NEEDS, the same massage as the last session. Thank you for reading!
Yesterday, I received the massage therapy continuing education schedule for the rest of the year! Two of them interest me to no end: massage therapy for people with cancer and geriatric massage therapy!! I’m sure I’ll end up taking both!
At an event last week, a woman I met gave an emphatic, almost my favorite testimony to the wonderful work done by me, other massage therapists, and the entire world of massage therapy, and it was this, “Those wooden rollers are great, but nothing can replace the human touch. Massage therapy and massage therapists can save your life!”.
Very soon, I’ll start researching for any new findings on massage for people with fibromyalgia!
Hi, all. Happy Monday! If that’s a contradiction in terms, I apologize. I DO hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! Everybody Deserves a Massage Week was a hit; I started out by celebrating by helping someone in her home that REALLY needed me! Aaannnddd, an updated on my year-long, continuing-ed class will follow soon!
So excited b/c my favorite week of the year is here! I just want everyone to know that massage therapy is so beneficial to almost everyBODY since it benefits, positively, every system in the body!
Well, tonight I’ve got a CONTINUING (year-long series!) continuing-ed class on fibromyalgia. I’m still not swayed either way as to whether I believe we (LMTs, of course) should have ever been mandated to take continuing education. I feel that I get an education EVERY time I see a patient (I’ve also heard this opinion from some fellow therapists, including my own!), but I do honestly feel that NCBMTB (National Certification Board on Massage Therapy and Bodywork) was simply trying to lend, and keep, credence to my wonderful, healthful, chosen profession!
