I recently attended the AMTA-KY state conference and came away with a lot of great new information and renewed enthusiasm for body work. Over 200 people from Kentucky, Indiana, Tennessee, Ohio and even Georgia attended. The Board did a great job attracting nationally recognized educators Susan Salvo, Debra Korener, Gloria Coppola, and Eric Stephenson. They raised the level of the conversation and energized the group. Topics included Massage for Special Populations, Massage and Medications, Lomi Lomi, Self-Care, Lower Extremity Injury treatment, Shoulder Injury Treatment, TMJD treatment, Professional Ethics, Deep Tissue Techniques and Practice Development. It was an enjoyable and informative experience and bolstered my respect for my fellow Massage Professionals in Kentucky and the Profession overall. Please ask your LMT about his/her professional development activities. We should never stop learning and sharing our knowledge with our clients.
