    Racism in the Workplace, with guest Jasmine

    Racism in the Workplace, with guest Jasmine

    Jasmine had worked as a Massage Therapist in spas before starting up her own mobile practice. She mentioned to us that when she was employed at the spa, she had more than one encounter with a patient who didn’t want to be treated by her because she is a black therapist. We invited Jasmine in to speak about her experiences with racist patients, how she handles the situation, how the spa handles it and could handle it, and how Jasmine reacted to the experiences. It’s sad that the conversation has to happen but we cannot stop talking about important issues until they aren’t issues anymore. But of course, in true 2 RMTs and a mic fashion, the three of us had some fun even while discussing a heavy topic.

    Under the Sheets, with guest Megan

    Under the Sheets, with guest Megan

    Megan is a Registered Massage Therapist and founder of Slow Medicine Company in Toronto. We invited her in to talk about her company and her journey through massage. Megan is a yoga instructor and was the person who got Amanda interested in yoga many years ago with her unique style of helping her students gain more body awareness and mind body connection into their practice. We didn’t expect the conversation that developed but we got to hear a beautiful story of Megan’s unique journey from leaving home as a teen, travelling alone as a young girl, gaining self awareness, and ultimately deciding on a career as a massage therapist. Listen to a story about another amazing human who helps other humans.

    Talking to Another Canadian Association, with guests Heather and April from CMMOTA

    We had a sit down with 2 people from the Canadian Massage and Manual Osteopathic Therapists Association (CMMOTA). We met Heather, the Executive Director, and April, the conference coordinator, at the CMMOTA spring conference this past May in Saskatchewan. These two women really strive to provide a supportive environment for therapists and bring quality education and advocacy for their members. We have been invited back to their fall conference next month and we are so excited to work with them and the awesome therapists we will meet in Alberta. The conference is open to both members and non members so listen to hear what this association is up to!

Entertaining, informative content for massage therapists

I am a CMT in California and love hearing all of the "infotainment" in this podcast! It sounds like Canada is ahead of the USA in terms of the basic education people in our field receive. I like that the hosts are also Registered Kinesiologists because I also have an exercise physiology/training background. I have one tiny piece of feedback regarding the March 11 2021 episode, which covered many topics. But this point applies to a lot of comments I hear by Americans as well. People think that if a platform such as Facebook/ Instagram/Twitter takes down their content because it is considered controversial or offensive, their "free speech" rights are being violated. The same complaints were made when the company that owns the Dr. Suess books decided to discontinue a few of their titles because content was deemed outdated/racist by the company. Regardless of your or my opinion, these are private companies, not the government. So they can decide to block content, remove products, etc. Nobody has an inhererent "right to free speech" on privately owned platforms. Americans confuse this all the time with the First Amendment. So if Instagram pulls down somebody's video showing people how to get through an airport without a mask during a pandemic, that is their right. You can agree or disagree with their decision, and go off the platform in protest, but they are not violating a person's legal rights.
Keep up the good work! I hope to attend one of your trainings someday.
