    Welcome to this episode of The Radical RMT Podcast with Yvonne Moir.

    They are a Registered Massage Therapist in Toronto Canada and they are also a professional musician. They play the baritone saxophone and most recently toured with The Arkells. You will learn more in this episode about how they balance these two worlds and the importance of freedom and flexibility in a career that allows opportunities and the impulse to take action on them. 

    Yvonne is also a clinic co-owner at Origin Wellness in Toronto and shares a few ideas for effective partnerships and creating an ethical and safe space for patients and practitioners. With their musical career background, they refer to the clinic and the practitioners who work together as "building their dream band with all the people I want to play with in one spot."

    They explain in this episode how a full schedule actually provides them with more structure and how vital a creative outlet is to their mental health.


    There are a lot of wonderful takeaways in this episode and I hope you enjoy listening!

    Goal Setting: Krista Dicks, RMT

    Goal Setting: Krista Dicks, RMT

    “Most people overestimate what they can do in one year and underestimate what they can do in ten years.” - Bill Gates

    ...

    It's a solo episode with me, Krista Dicks, Registered Massage Therapist and host of The Radical RMT Podcast. 

    This episode is a simple guide to goal setting and getting started so that you can start achieving your goals this very month and finish 2021 with some momentum. 

    Goal setting can be overwhelming and that might be why you are hesitant to get started or maybe your goals just need a reboot.  

    I give you five categories to focus on and I walk you through some examples. 

    I have also created a FREE Goal Setting PDF for you to download where you can record your goals and find more explanation on each of the 5 categories. 

    Setting goals and planning out how to achieve them is one of my favourite things to do so, if you need any help or you want to share your goals with me for some accountability or celebratory high-fives I would love to hear from you! Send me a DM @theradicalrmt 

    Have fun and I hope you enjoy this episode!

    #022 Connecting. Ian Kamm, RMT, Teacher.

    #022 Connecting. Ian Kamm, RMT, Teacher.

    "This is an opportunity for us collectively to reassure our clients and the general public that we are doing everything we can to take their health and safety into account" - Ian Kamm, RMT

    ...

    Ian has over 23 years of experience in and around massage therapy and his passion for the profession is not letting up. 

    He has an excellent reputation among RMTs for his courses held in favourable warm destinations (Vegas, Turks and Caicos, Mexico, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, and more). He also teaches at Sutherland Chan helping to bring the next wave of RMTs into the world with some business sense. 

    He has an innate ability to explain the complicated or confusing and he thrives on it. He says that teaching has helped him to develop this skill and he is often sought out for his explanations not only by his students but, the general RMT population as well. 

    Ian works in his own clinic and has a loyal clientele who will gladly drive across the city of Toronto for his signature techniques. 

    Ian not only finds opportunities to travel for his courses but, he loves running and triathlons so when he can, he loves to do both in one destination! 

    I was very excited to chat with Ian and I hope you enjoy this episode!

Helps Greatly!

As a fellow massage therapist, this podcast speaks to my soul. Thank you!

Nothing short of amazing

When I first started listening to Krista's podcast, I was blown away by her natural ability to connect with not only her audience, but also her guests that appear on her show.

Krista's gentle, yet fact finding approach to what she does is what I think gives her an edge! You can tell that her content is studied and prepared for.

This is by far one of my favorite podcasts that I listen because every time I learn something new. It's funny how you can feel so connected to someone like you've known them forever. This is exactly how Krista makes you feel when you listen to her material.

Thanks Krista for playing such an impactful and pivotal role in this dynamic industry. We need many more Krista's in the world.

Looking forward to more

Loved Krista questions! She has a very calm and relaxing voice that’s easy to listen to. I hope her next guests have a bit more passion for the profession. It was disappointing listening to someone go on who admits to staying in the profession for a “highly hourly rate” and that “doesn’t find it challenging enough”. I am looking forward to listening to her next guests.
