The City of Greenville, South Carolina - STUCK IN THE 50's

Hi folks: I am just opening my new practice in the beautiful city of Greenville, SC. Now I am trying to be a good little massage therapist and get all the licenses and pay all the fees (rip off). So I venture to City Hall to purchase my business license with my check in hand. If you will indulge me,...

I passed!

Yipee!!!!! :D :D :D :D Got there early, answered all the questions I knew right off the bat and marked the rest. Went back over the marked ones, whittled them down to only about 10 questions I wasn't too sure of. One more complete review and then I was done with 9 minutes to spare. Thank you all fo...

Unacceptable..

I am 59 years old and just graduated school here in SC. My class had 22 students in the beginning (at least my half of the class). Sure there were some young folks who sort of cliqued together and thought they would just work on one another. The Director of the program and my instructor would have n...

I know where you are now...

Believe me I understand. I graduated 2 weeks ago and I take my National Board exam tomorrow but all I can tell you is to let your fingers and hands "see" for you. Exam update - I passed! After a little while I closed my eyes to force my hands to do the visualizing. I don't know if others do that but...

Tomorrow is D Day...

OK, I am calm!

I take the NETMB tomorrow at 1:30pm Eastern time. Please pray or think of me at that time. I am going in the other room shortly to watch a movie and chill out.

Just a quick review of TCM in the morning and I believe I am ready.

Wish me luck.

:shock:

Re: Offer of Help

Have you scheduled a test date? How much time do you have to study? I am an anatomy and physiology teacher and has a lot of knowledge about kinesiology and how to take the test. If you want my help, post a reply. Bill Bill: Maybe you could give me a hint because I have been doing really well on pra...

Graduate tomorrow!!!

Well, I will be officially done with school tomorrow (even though I finished exams last week) and I am now waiting for the NCBTMB to send me my test authorization. I signed up on Saturday under the NESL option. Has anyone taken that exam? Can you share some tips on content? The website indicates tha...

Sharon... I am in this really for the joy of giving people confort and some relief from cronic pain. I certainly don't expect to become rich although I expect to do fairly well. Once my wife graduates school next year - we will open up our practice full time at home. All I have to do is get past the...

Not really, I am not really a spa type person and I am too ld to work for anyone else.

I plan on going into private practice after I pass the Federated exam.

The opposite view...

Well I would like to propose the opposite point of view. How may of you think that your female clients (assuming you are male) get aroused when you work on them? I am not talking about overt "happy ending" type massages but run of the mill Swedish, relaxation massage. Maybe they don't show it to you...

Clinic and now externship...

Hi folks: I had a different experience in Clinic. Our school (Greenville Tech) required us to set up our own business and have a manager, scheduler, receptionist and supply coordinator (someone who makes up the tables between clients). All the students had to rotate through each of the jobs except m...

Clinic update...

Well clinic hasn't actually started. We had a bunch of hoursekeeping things to do. I was elected Clinic Manager (one else wanted the job) so that's keeping me busy.

Our first clinic day (Thursday, Jan. 17th) is almost all booked up.

I will let you all know how it goes.

Complaint???

I worked as an administrator for a few career colleges and if your school isn't doing right by you - there is a way to get it fixed. 1st - document every step you have taken to get help or a resolution to your problem. When you document, do it on a factual level and not emotional. That's hard to do ...

Well, I just signed the papers to register for school and I start on August 20th. I am nervous but I know I can do it. I am just not sure about this at my age -58. I did notice a few women in the room at my orientation who seemed older so I don't feel out of place. I can't wait to get started so I c...
