    More on Peer Assessments, with guest Lynn

    Lynn joined ConEd Institute for a Record Keeping course and during the class discussions, she was mentioning some of the issues that registrants in Ontario have been having with their peer assessment. We have spoken on this subject before but it seems that many of our listeners are finding that the process has changed and not for the better. So Lynn came on to talk about her recent experience and what she thinks should be done differently. Listen in for more about the peer assessment process.

    From Paramedic to Equine Massage Therapist, with guest Tracey

    From Paramedic to Equine Massage Therapist, with guest Tracey

    Listen to the most open and honest conversation from a retired Paramedic who spent almost 2 decades saving lives. Tracey tells us all about what it’s really like in the life of a first responder and why she didn’t feel it was the right fit for her. She was super honest about the mental toll it takes on a person and the lack of support for their mental health. Of course she also shared some funny stories because in a career like that, a sense of humour is a survival skill. Now, a Registered Massage Therapist for both horses and humans, Tracey gives us even more insight into why equine massage is so beneficial, what it’s like to work with horses, and some personal stories about her own horse, Bill.

    My First Reiki Experience, with guest Ashleigh

    My First Reiki Experience, with guest Ashleigh

    Ashleigh came into our life by chance it may have seemed or was it meant to be? Did the universe know we all needed each other? You be the judge. Ashleigh is a Reiki master and soon to be RMT. She invited us into her practice space and gave Mark his first Reiki treatment. Listen to hear about Ashleigh, learn about Reiki, and hear us recap Mark’s session. The three of us discussed what Ashleigh observed in Mark, what Mark felt during the session, and how he was feeling in the following hours and days. We are excited to continue to get treatment from Ashleigh and will give updates about how Reiki is working for us!

We have worked with Terra at the Canadian Massage Conference for the past 3 years and she was one of our speakers at the B3 Conference that we hosted in March of 2021 raising $4300 for Food Banks Canada. We were super excited to have Terra on to learn more about her and more from her. She’s a go-to in our profession for understanding the pelvic floor and we can’t wait to have her at ConEd to teach courses for you all! Listen to be inspired…

    Building a Dream Team, with guests Erin and Fanaye

    Erin and Fanaye are business partners and owners of a successful Physiotherapy and  Massage Therapy studio in Toronto. They have been having a difficult time hiring Massage Therapists since they changed their business model from a subcontractor model to an employee model. We had a discussion about different business models, managing expectations, what RMTs are looking for from a clinic, and why we think clinic owners are having trouble building their dream team.

    Making Moves and Seizing Opportunity, with guest Danielle

    Making Moves and Seizing Opportunity, with guest Danielle

    Danielle is a Registered Massage Therapist who has had a very successful career that she has built based on her own hard work, merit, making connections, saying yes to opportunities, and holding firm on her own convictions. Danielle was an excellent student when she attended the University of Toronto for physical education which led to her having a close relationship with her professors who were more than happy to help her out. She was advised to attend Sutherland Chan by a sports med professor and later, as a Massage student,  was introduced to her first athlete client by another professor. Although she never intended to work in athletics, athletes were drawn to her and one of her first clients as a registered therapist was an NBA player and the rest is history. Danielle has attended major games, worked in a high end spa where she used her business savvy to get what she wanted, and has a successful mobile business. This girl is on fire!!

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.
