Massage Therapy Now Episode 16 - Intuition with Cathy Ryan and Pam Fitch

Authors, Educators, Practitioners, Scientists, and Philosophers Cathy Ryan and Pam Fitch join me for a beautiful discussion on intuition and its presence in Manual Therapy.  Is it useful, important, and necessary?  How does science and evidence based practice relate to the idea of intuition?

Pam Fitch is the author of Talking Body, Listening Hands, a speaker, and an educator in Manual Therapy whose presence and thoughtful introspection provide a wisdom and depth that only comes with years of intentional practice.

Cathy Ryan is the co-author of Traumatic Scar Tissue Management, a speaker, and an educator in Manual Therapy who, like Pam, has walked a deeply intentional path in relation to Manual Therapy and her life.  Her insight provided in this short interview is thought provoking and inspiring.

Massage Therapy Now Episode 10 - Matt Furlot

In this episode Matt and I are speaking to the idea of interdisciplinary practice, what it looks like from a sports team perspective, and how that has influenced his building of the Legacies Health Centres in the lower mainland.  His thoughts on why interdisciplinary practice works and how to implement them in your own practice are sure to be useful to many of the listeners.  And to be sure, it's different than multidisciplinary practice!  Enjoy

Massage Therapy Now Episode 8 - Bodhi Haraldsson

In this Episode Bodhi and I talk research.  Bodhi's scientific mind is drawn to research making him a completely different snowflake than myself, so the time spent talking was a massive education for me as to the importance of research, why a massage therapist should pay attention to it, how to engage with research, how to find quality research and much more!
