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! 🇺🇸

Let me know if you have questions
