With a few weeks off of daily class, and no work on the horizon, I am trying a smoothie-based cleans of sorts.
Frozen berries, mango and who knows what fresh with Good Belly juice and ground flax seeds.
Yummy and good for ya!

Now, this isn't for weight loss per se, but I'm curious, so I measured belly, hips, chest, ribs and thigh.

Might have to get a scale. :)


Two certificates down, 200 hours to go to CMT

Thursday, June 30, 2011

I finished the school's Swedish massage curriculum yesterday, and a Thai massage course Tuesday. That's 300 hours so far (with Asian systems and a random ethics class).
Once home yesterday, a reread of CAMTC's site pointed out applicants need 100 hours of anatomy/physiology/hygiene/business/ethics to apply for Certified Massage Practitioner. (which would roll over to CM Therapist upon completion of 500 hours).

I have 62. Blast.
So, I can file CCMP, Conditional CMP now or take an additional anatomy class.
I plan on taking MBLEx, so the anatomy class it is, as each change with CAMTC is predicated by a $30 fee. I'd happily pay it once. But twice?

Update: I'm holding on for 500 hours and one filing.

I now am beyond 700 hours.
So, I'm official and working, but taking the courses to add to my skills.

Could you share what a contract therapist is, in your use?

Spring for regeneration

Saturday, March 12, 2011

I'm an autumn baby, which means my up energy time falls in, well, fall.
So having new starts in spring is harder.
But I started classes for massage therapy last week, and I am getting the benefit of "sap rising in the spring."
I have a concentrated curriculum, with one set of classes lasting about two months.
So, in two months, I will already have a certificate, and be able to take on clients, legally.

What a change from university, which took nine long semesters and four summers (I attended part time to start).

I am learning to press your buttons so the world doesn't.
Next task: business plan.

    I will log 500 hours to complete what I legally have to do in California.
I am looking at MBLEX, as it counts in Colorado, and I hope to return at least part time.

    WOW! How long are the classes. I would have like to do that instead of 50 weeks , 5 days week, 4 hrs a day for a grand total of 900 class hours. Are you taking the MBLEX or the national test?
