Welcome to my Blog


So, it seems that you want to spend some time reading what I have to say. Well, thank you and welcome! It's my hope that each time you read something it inspires you, makes you question your beliefs, challenges you, teaches you something and hopefully gives you a few chuckles along the way. I am not a 'writer', but I do love to teach and this a fantastic forum for that, I will talk about what I know and sometimes challenge conventional thinking on a variety of subjects but I will never be intentionally disrespectful. Having said that though, I might ruffle the odd feather sometimes... Thanks for listening.

In order to work as a successful massage therapist, we need to make sure we have the best foundations possible. This series on body mechanics will offer tips and insight into how best to ensure we have these foundations in place in order to have a long, injury free career and are able to work with comparative ease during every session. The first in series is all about massage couch height.

This week is the BIG XI conference in Belgium. I am fortunate enough to be one of the invited guests and as it is an invite only conference, I hope to be able to pass on information to many of you as to what biotensegrity is and the importance of it for our work as massage therapists.

After a decade of not finding a solution towards beating diabetes, I can now say I see a light at the end of the tunnel.

The start of my cure was finding Debbie, a Functional Medicine Practitioner, who had the key to finding the right answers.

With respect, I was trying to follow the recommendations and suggestions from my Doctor to understand and treat my condition, so off to class, I went.

Are we bringing the XFactor to massage?

I was coming from a frustrating place of not feeling well, headaches were constant, eyesight was going, weight gain forever increasing, and my energy was nonexistent. I did my research and the tests confirmed my suspicions.

The stuff you need to know before you go for the cure...
