    From Cartoonist to Massage Therapist to Massage Therapy Cartoonist, with guest Karen

    Some of you may know Karen for her witty and wonderful Massage Therapy cartoons. We have seen them online, and in the Friday File from the RMTAO, and we wanted to speak to the woman behind the animations. Karen had a full and successful career in animation which allowed her to work on some of our most favourite cartoons from our childhood...talk about nostalgia! She eventually realized that the industry wasn’t what she wanted for the rest of her life and decided to try her hands at a new career...see what I did there? As a mature student, Karen enrolled in Massage Therapy college and the rest is history. She has now been in practice for almost two decades and as a creative person, she couldn’t simply stop drawing cartoons! So for our viewing pleasure, we now have adventuresfromkarensclinic.com. Listen to this fascinating story and definitely head to her website to see more from this Massage Therapist, animator, and most recently...stand up comic?!?

    Manual Therapy My Own Way, with guest Sandy

    Manual Therapy My Own Way, with guest Sandy

    Sandy is a Registered Massage Therapist in Vaughan who had reached out to us because he wanted to share his assessments and treatment approach with us. He thought he was coming in to give one of us a demo treatment so we could experience what he does but instead we have him a mic so he could share with you all. Sandy is no stranger to pain having injuries himself, and has found a way of providing manual therapy to his clients that gives him satisfaction and he is getting excellent clinical outcomes. Sandy’s approach is far from traditional Massage Therapy, which is part of the reason he decided to take a leap and start his own practice. Listen as Sandy explains why and how he moved into this direction for himself and his patients, and listen to us create a 5 year plan FOR him which includes bringing on RMTs and becoming a mentor for the next generation of therapists.

    Body Rub Parlours Surviving COVID....an Owners Story, with guest Emily Muse

    Body Rub Parlours Surviving COVID....an Owners Story, with guest Emily Muse

    We had a repeat guest, Emily, who is one of the owners of Muse Massage Spa; a licensed body rub parlour with locations in Toronto and Vaughan. We initially spoke with Emily back in 2018 when we did a series on body rub parlours to educate the public about what is and isn’t legal and why RMT’s get asked for “Happy Endings”! This time around, we reached out to Emily to see how her industry has been affected by COVID-19 and lockdowns. We talked about the rules they had when given the green light to reopen (yes that includes attendants in masks), how Emily herself and her business partner have survived being shut down, some different parts of the sex industry and how they have been affected, and all of the many possible tangents when speaking to someone as open and honest as Emily.

    Field Trippin’ with guests Dr. Mike and Ronan

    Field Trippin’ with guests Dr. Mike and Ronan

    Ronan Levy, one of the founders of Field Trip Health, and Dr. Michael Verbora, the Medical Director for Canada at Field Trip Health, joined us via zoom to educate us and our listeners on evidence based, legal, psychedelic therapies that have been proven effective when used to treat anxiety, depression, and PTSD. These two both have a background working with medicinal cannabis and have now started using a combination of ketamine and psychotherapy to help their patients. Dr. Mike is a trained family physician who became tired of simply adjusting his patients medications versus finding the root of the problem. Listen to him describe the process in detail and how and why it works. As a “recovering lawyer”, Ronan has a passion for what he’s doing now and even shares some personal experience about how this process has improved his own life.

    Hanging with Entrepreneurs, with guest Christina

    Hanging with Entrepreneurs, with guest Christina

    Christina messaged us a year ago with an idea to record an episode about Massage Therapy and hydrotherapy for babies with the intent to debunk some baby spa myths. Well, being a Mom and Entrepreneur aka Mompreneur, took precedence and a year later we finally had our conversation! We got to hear about Christina’s journey into Massage Therapy, and how her practice has continually evolved through her eagerness to learn and expand her knowledge and technical skills. Christina is the owner of Alternative Healing Wellness Clinic in Vaughan which includes Massage Therapy, Pediatric Massage Therapy, Hydrotherapy, Hypnotherapy, and even Aqua Therapy for infants and children with varying needs.

    Conversations with Clients, with guest Liz the Silent Hero

    Conversations with Clients, with guest Liz the Silent Hero

    Check out this 2nd episode of season 4. We had Liz hang out on our couch after receiving a Massage Therapy treatment. She was a bit reluctant to strap on a headset and sit behind a mic, she's a bit shy, but deep down shes really a superhero. Liz does something special for work, something she calls "just being nice to people" but really it's so much more....she does social work in a homeless shelter for men with substance abuse issues. Listen in as we rap about how she got started in the this line of work, leaving University just shy of obtaining her Psychology Degree to pursue a Diploma in Social Service Work, serving wine and beer to addicts, her new found perspective on the male experience, the humor of being called f*ckface, a close call with COVID at her workplace, and how her friends and family feel about her job. She is a true hero, a silent hero who humbly does her thing while making a huge impact on the lives of those around her.
