The Mind Body Connection is currently offering several online courses for your learning convenience. With home study courses, the convenience and ability to review the material can actually increase your overall level of learning. When all of this information comes at you during a short time, as in a live class, studies indicate that the retention rate is as low as 50%. With home study, you can review over and over again, which, with enough repetition, can increase your retention rate as high as 100%. That would more than compensate for any real or perceived disadvantage of not having the instructor stand over you as you practice.

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT MEDICATION USE IN OVER 50 by Hope DeVall
“Please list your medications.” As massage therapists, we ask clients to respond to this request for information on our intake forms — but do we know how to use that information? The use of certain drugs may require adaptation of pressure, techniques, positioning and protocol.
CLINICAL AROMATHERAPY & MASSAGE by Hope DeVall
If you have been paying attention to the world of natural health and wellness lately, chances are you have heard about new research surrounding the field of Clinical Aromatherapy. Clinical Aromatherapy is defined as “the educated art and science of utilizing naturally extracted aromatic essences from plants in order to balance, correct, harmonize and promote the health of body, mind and spirit. It explores the physiological, psychological and spiritual realm of the individual’s response to aromatic extracts and uses those observations to enhance the person’s healing process,” (National Association for Holistic Aromatherapy).
THE PARACHUTE MIND by Hope DeVall
As a profession, Massage Therapists seem to prize themselves on being an open-minded bunch; however, if you spend a few hours reading posts and comments in our many professional groups and forums you might not think that was the case at all. Over the last few years our profession has made some serious changes, and has evolved quite substantially. Our identity is ever-changing as we walk between worlds of healthcare and the personal services. As they would in any profession, the rapid pace of change has led to some professional discord. In this article, I’d like to explore some of these changes and the different facets of massage therapy practices.
