Wow, that has been awhile since I took Stuart's class. Sorry for that huge gap :shock: I have to say that having taken both Michael Young's class, MRT, and Stuart Taws class, STR, I feel that both offered something extremely beneficial. I could not pick one, I am completely happy with the fact that ...

It is a lot of fun, I really think that is what it is for. It is only a bonus that anyone playing gets a l...

Hi Breathe: I too bought the MW digital table warmer and was greatly disappointed.

I will have to agree with palpable on the "COOL" factor of a nail file/ clipper. I recently did this when I ran across a website that had a colored glass nail file......... take a gander, they are cool.

Hope the website works, enjoy.

What is your favorite add-on service to massage?

Dorraine:

WOW, a 250 gallon soaker, that is wonderful. I bet your clients love that, the bath bomb soak would be a great add-on. Sounds like a nice set-up to work with.

Thank you for the ideas, everyone.
