Continuing Education
Pain is defined as “the sensation of acute physical hurt or discomfort caused by an injury” or “emotional suffering or mental distress.” Invisible is defined as “not visible, not able to be perceived by the eye.”
There are many things to study when learning the art of fascial treatment – and the most important is “anatomy.”  If you do not know where to place your hands, no technique in the world will work consistently for you.
General Motors doesn’t want to sell you just one car. The car manufacturer estimates that if they keep you satisfied through quality products and service, you could provide them with up to $400,000 of business over your lifetime.
Education standards for the massage therapy profession are paramount. However, agreement about what the content of a massage therapy qualification should be is sometimes difficult to achieve.

Massage therapists do not belong to a diagnosing profession. But many of us feel that the line between diagnosis and assessment is a rather fuzzy one. Unless we want to rely on other health care professionals to tell us what is wrong with our clients we need to map out the difference between diagnosis and assessment and have a firm understanding of the relationship between assessment, treatment planning and treatment outcomes.
We all want good evidence when we make decisions about how to treat our clients. We want to share reliable, best-possible information with our clients when we help them to make sense of the issues and conditions they bring to our clinics.
After three years, 11 months, four days, two stops and three starts I am both thrilled and honoured to have been involved in the creation and release of Canada’s first magazine for the Massage Therapy profession.
