Ep 40 – ABMP SUMMIT WEEK! Financially Surviving COVID-19 with Massage Business Blueprint

Allissa Haines and Michael Reynolds join the podcast to discuss the wake-up call that the pandemic served. COVID magnified what MTs were doing well or poorly pre-shutdowns.

Find your weaknesses and hone them in preparation for 2021 and beyond.

Ep 38 – Bunions: “I Have a Client Who …” Pathology Conversations with Ruth Werner

Bunions? Calcifications? Does it make a difference? A massage therapist isn’t sure what’s going on with her client’s foot and wants to know if it even matters. We will unpeel the layers of this situation to revisit bunions, Wolff’s law, osteoarthritis, and more. Come explore this gynglimoarthrodial joint with me—and no, I didn’t make up that word!

Ep 35 – The “Ah-Ha” Moment with The Rebel MT Allison Denney

Allison Denney, The Rebel MT, joins the podcast to give us insight into what it means to be a rebel. From starting her wildly popular YouTube channel, to creating her own products, to building a brand, Allison lives up to the “believe in yourself” mantra. Her mission is to give MTs the tools to create their own paths and have the power to speak their voices.
