Ep 164 – Chatter with Dr. Ethan Kross

Tell a stranger that you talk to yourself, and you’re likely to get written off as eccentric. But the truth is, we all have a voice in our head. When we talk to ourselves, we often hope to tap into our inner coach but find our inner critic instead. In this episode, Dr. Ethan Kross, author of the book Chatter, discusses the role chatter plays in an emotional and physical sense, how we can gain psychological distance, and how belief plays a role in guiding us through negative self-dialogue.

Ep 161 – Maintaining Optimal Massage Health with Marisa Savino

How do personal training and massage therapy complement each other? Marisa Savino joins the podcast to discuss how to maintain optimal massage health by improving strength and agility, preventing long-term burnout, how to set a routine (and stick to it), and how nutrition plays a role in your daily massage practice.

Ep 159 – The Feldenkrais Method with Chrish Kresge

The Feldenkrais Method is named after Moshe Feldenkrais, who explored new relationships between the mind and body to improve his own physical movement and functioning. In this episode, we discuss simple movement practices, the differences between ATM (Awareness Through Movement) and FI (Functional Integration), and the benefits of Feldenkrais work for both clients and practitioners.

Ep 156 – Cupping with Dr. Joi Edwards

Cupping was described in the Ebers Papyrus, one of the oldest medical textbooks in the world, which means ancient Egyptians may have been using cupping therapy as early as 1500 BCE. But how does cupping really work? In this episode, Kristin and Darren speak to Dr. Joi Edwards, DPT, about how cupping can create mobility within the tissue to restore function and decrease pain, what kind of cups are used and why, scope of practice, and how long patients should wait between sessions.

Ep 154 – The Ergonomics Project with Robin Anderson

Safety and efficiencies in the workplace can help a therapist’s career longevity. So, how does the Ergonomics Project aim to do this? In this episode, Robin Anderson, president of the Massage Therapy Foundation, discusses what the study of ergonomics entails and delves into both phases of the Ergonomics Project, how they plan on using this research, and how different modalities play a role in the project’s approach.
