I have been AWOL from my blog post for several weeks. Why? Travel, other stuff, the dog ate my laptop, the usual.
If you were my clients, I would be pretty lonely right now, because I haven’t touched base regularly enough. And you know what? I would deserve it.
We are all busy—having a life, managing to get through each day, getting stuff done. But we also need to be prospecting. You can’t assume those clients will come through your door forever. That’s why pro sports teams have scouts—the all-stars get older and retire. Your A1 client might get transferred. Who will step up and take their place? Well, compadre, that’s up to you to figure out. Is your client base right where you want it today? Then time to make sure it stays that way.
The good news? I actually have been busy, and I’m starting running again, and I have some cool stuff I want to share, but it’s not quite ready to come out of the oven. So you’ll have to sit tight for a bit longer. But don’t worry, I won’t forget you—I never do. I just need to tell you that. Just like you need to tell your clients.
Talk to you soon(er).
The Florida Board of Massage Therapy (Board) has proposed a new massage therapy rule that amends the definitions section affecting massage therapy schools. ABMP has summarized the proposed rule for you below. If you would like to submit written comments to the Board in support of, or in opposition to, the proposed rules, email Danielle.Terrell@flhealth.gov by November 21, 2022.
While this is the time of year that #gratitude starts trending, living a grateful life is not something to wrap up in a day, a week, a month . . . or a hashtag. We need to honor it all from an open heart.
Lymph Talk is a series of conversations ABMP Director of Professional Education Kristin Coverly had with practitioners who specialize in the manual lymphatic drainage (MLD) modality. These talks were recorded in conjunction with the October 25, 2022, free, online ABMP CE Summit on Lymph. Kristin says, “My hope is that these conversations increase the awareness of MLD and demonstrate how effective it can be with different populations so massage therapists and bodyworkers are inspired to learn more about this gentle, yet powerful modality!”
Gain an understanding of manual lymphatic drainage (MLD) movements and the location of important lymphatic structures as you watch Nicola McGill’s dynamic demonstration of three MLD techniques and MLD sequences for the neck and face. Learn about this important modality that, when provided effectively, can support and enhance the movement of lymph fluid through the lymphatic vessels and eventually back to the cardiovascular system.
Manual lymphatic drainage (MLD) is a gentle, rhythmic form of bodywork that enhances and supports the movement of fluid through the lymphatic system to support health and well-being. Developed by Danish therapists Emil and Estrid Vodder in the 1930s, MLD is now practiced extensively by health and wellness practitioners and is used within the medical community to treat lymphedema and post-surgical and post-traumatic edema. Join Nicola McGill in this engaging course to learn the benefits, indications, and mechanics of this gentle, effective modality.
