New Site for Massage Therapists


Please go to a new site for massage therapy research and get involved in the coolness of learning about research.
Yep, it was created by yours truly.

I had lunch today.....

...with a fellow blogger.

It was great. Yep, Christina of Lucrative Pain, fellow massage therapist is great and I know we're going to be good friends.

How cool is that?
We "met" through each others blogs and now we're having chin wags over lunch.

Makes me glad for blogging!

Nice wee surprises

I was checking my analytics tonight and found a link to my wee blog from here that really made my day.

I'm number 14!!!

I don't know if that actually means anything, but I'm taking it as meaning it's freakin' AWESOME!!!!!!

I'm thinking of getting one of these....

It's supposed to be a nose warmer, but I'm thinking of using it just as a nose-cover.
Don't you hate it when you've just got over a cold, only your nose is left with "scabbiness" that's just horrible?
ESPECIALLY when you've got new clients and you know that the only thing that they're looking at the first time you meet them is your nose.
I had that today.

The thing about modern conveniences..... that we are totally dependent on them in order to keep us SANE.

What modern convenience is every massage therapist TOTALLY dependent on?

Yes, you guessed it, our washer went kaput today and guess what else? It's going to be over a week before the repair peeps can get here.
A WEEK! Whoop-dee-freakin'-doo!
A WEEK of running to the public laundromat with the sheets from work (which I got back to today - I'm still a wee bit stuffed up, but not too bad).

Oh well, at least it wasn't a month.

You know, when I was young and I was living by myself I used to do all my laundry at the laundromat - now it just bothers me. I'm turning into a grumpy old woman!

And yes, that's a picture of a dude in a washer. Don't ask me why he's there - I don't know. Does anyone know what really goes through the mind of a man?

Off sick today...

...woke up with a sore throat and a definite problem with the nasal passages.

So I'd to reschedule everyone today - 6 massage hours.

I think that's one of the major drawbacks of working for ourselves, right?
Sickness = zero income.

New Year "Stuff"

It's funny the things I learn from my clients.

I worked on New Years Day and I was the only one working in the location I work in. I was busy - five and a half hours of massage and I worked 'til 8 that night. I thought I may as well work rather than sitting around the house watching T.V., plus I need the money.

One of my regular clients and I were talking about new year resolutions and I said that I had the same one that I did last year that I never stuck to - to reduce the girthiness of my stomach, work out, stop eating rubbish etc.
She told me that she heard good advice on on the radio which was:
"Don't carry anything into 2010 that prevented you from growing in 2009"

I like that. It made me think. It even made me think about the reasons WHY I didn't stick to going to the gym. Also, I have plans that sometimes don't work out because I get bored with stuff easily. Hmmmmmm..............that whole self analysis thing is sometimes good.

I also think I'm going to keep a wee book of "Things I've learned from clients". But then, will I procrastinate with that too?
