The New Year has begun!

So ~ yesterday was the first day back to the office in the New Year.  I received a lot of calls and text messages about scheduling a massage or if there was any availability this coming week.  This excites me as I know it's going to be a fun filled and action packed year ahead.

I also received a "911" call from a Navy Corpsman, he tweaked his back.  he wasn't sure on how he did it but just the same he was in pain and was going crazy trying to find someone to help him out. The problem was it was Monday - the day right after new years - NO ONE WAS WORKING...  but I was, The USMT office was open & operational.  We know the mission.. our Military!

I know that some will say that we need to take care of ourselves first, yup - you are correct and I had all weekend (off) to do that.  I don't treat my career or my profession like a "hobby" or a "part time gig" - I'm serious about what I do and for the Athletes, Clients, Marines, Sailors & Navy Corpsman I work with here in Camp Lejeune.  They are the MISSION!

Interesting as it is.. I had the opportunity to work with two brothers yesterday ( their dad is a Marine) One is a Pleb at Annapolis and the other is at NC state - he plays on the football team.  I've been working with these young men since they were both in HS.  Both of them asked me similar questions while they were getting worked on... and it was something like this:
"How often do you look for new ways to treat people?"  I was curious as to why they would ask me this after working with them for so long.. they both said ( in their own words ) that they have had others work on them but never seem to feel like the work they get targets the issues that plague them but I can always zero in on the trouble spots and resolve them until they "wreck" their bodies again. 

I toss that up to continually seeking new answers, new technology, new and improved ways to address the soft tissue muscular dysfunctions the body presents thru physical activities... and that is for all clients I see... not just athletes or Marines... EVERYONE.

That is a commitment I will always stick by... I will remain being Elite at what I do!

Lake Placid NY Bound VIA Fredericksburg VA & East Greenwich RI

Just a little update on my travels heading to Lake Placid New York for the US Luge Team... I had an outstanding time spent with my son & his little family...  It was very nice and relaxing and Thanksgiving dinner was delicious. ( and no I didn't over eat)  I used some very good discipline.. I do have that from time to time.  After spending a few days in VA, I moved on to RI ~ What an adventure that was!  When I travel ( drive) I can pretty much tolerate most things EXCEPT CT traffic jams- and they apparently happen for no reason at all... UGGGG... I spent 4 hours in that state, 3 more than I would have liked!

Tomorrow ( Monday morning) I'll start my drive to Lake Placid, but before I leave RI I will be delivering Kristen & Kaela's massage tables back to them from the MCM weekend.  I'm the keeper of the gear- so now I'm returning it.  Plus it gives me a chance to see them in person!  I really miss these two!!

My time in Lake Placid will be action packed of course, I already know that the first 2 days of having Luge back to the states and in the OTC will be slammed.  But I know what I have signed up for and I'm up for the challenge.

But I will tell you all that the most exciting part of being in Lake Placid will be that I will be working for my mentor.. you know the guy that teaches me new things and gets my creative thoughts going... all for the benefit of you! My Athletes, My Marines and My Clients

Ill touch base this coming week after the RUSH is over and update you on my adventure!

Always & with the Glitter!

IASTM for Massage Therapists

Well, here it is- the official IASTM Training for Massage Therapists on my terms.  I finally "pulled the trigger" and picked a time & location.  IASTM for Massage Therapists will take place in Orlando Florida on the weekend of January 27-29th 2017.   Cost is $350.00 - as of right now it is a certification class only ( I'm hoping my CE package is approved prior to class - if so, then all participants will receive 20 CE's for the training) 

Some of my fellow massage therapists know this and some don't - we ( massage therapists) have been left out of this training for many years by a certain company that I will not name - HOWEVER our time has arrived and I am taking this valuable knowledge and training to the masses in Massage therapy.  

I have been personally using tools since 2007 where I started to develop my expertise use of them before actually implementing them in sessions for the benefit of my clients and athletes.  I found that we use these tools differently in a massage session than other medical providers in the sports medicine field.  We have a place here as long as we recognize the importance of understanding the science behind the approach.  

As a massage therapist working along side the best of the best in the sports medicine world you MUST know your muscles ( inside and out) along with the skeletal system and the various organ systems of the body and how they react to a IASTM treatment.  You must also have a vast knowledge of sports injuries and medical conditions to be able to apply the IASTM principles for a successful treatment for your clients & athletes.

I'm excited to be presenting this training to my peers in the massage field! 🇺🇸
