                                    PRESIDENT’S ADDRESS
        I have been in training for nine months for a big event in December 2009 and the last 12 weeks have
been especially tiring and hard. No, I am not talking about another baby, on December 12, 2009 I ran the
Kiawah Island ½ marathon – 13.1 miles. I ran the entire race with my 69 year old mother in 2 hours 55
minutes and 19 seconds. My mother came in 3rd in her age group – she would have been 1st in her age group
had she been one year older. I was way far down for my age group – but I completed the race and I ran the
whole way. I bring this up not to get praise but to tell you my journey to fitness and hopefully encourage you
to wellness in 2010.
        I started my journey in June of 2008 when I decided to change my way of life. I was obese, more than
140 lbs overweight, and sick and tired. I was bound and determined to change. I started eating better and
exercising. In the beginning I could barely walk 3 miles in 1 hour; and that was exhausting. I did this almost
every day. I also incorporated in weights and yoga as well. The pounds started coming off and my light
started to shine just a little brighter.
        My fitness started to improve and I stated walking more and more; I used an elliptical machine as well.
In March of 2009 I had a crazy idea that I might try to accomplish what seemed impossible at the time. Run a
½ marathon by the end of the year. With the encouragement of others that they thought I could do this I
started to train for my goal. I had set backs a sprained ankle that took me out of running for 4 weeks and other
responsibilities that required my attention and time, children, job, and AMTA but I had a goal in mind.
        With 75 pounds shed from my body I awoke at 4:30 am on race day. I was excited and fearful at the
same time. I had breakfast with my children and parents and then Dad dropped Mom and me off at the race
venue. The place was packed – I believe there were about 4,000 runners and walkers that day. When we
started out the pace was slow and we were blocked by many people; The first 2 miles were horrible – I had the
thought “What was I thinking, I can’t do this – this is crazy.” Then around mile 4 were the African drummers
and dancers and they urged me on and then came the thoughts “I can do this, I can DO this, I CAN DO this.”
Seeing my Dad at mile 10 was wonderful, encouraging and emotional and having my children and husband at
the finish line was most heartening. I also had the encouragement of many friends and family who’ve
followed my journey on Facebook.
        I bring you this story at the start of the year to show you that even what might seem impossible can be
accomplished. Even with roadblocks and setbacks you can accomplish your dreams and make them your real-
ity. I hope you will consider your fitness this year and look to improve yourself in body, mind and spirit. I
will also link this in with a class we are offering in March (for free if you are taking other classes the same
weekend) – Physical Fitness and Health for Massage Therapists, Physicians and the Public. The lecturer is one
of the best public speakers I have ever seen – even though I am a bit biased (it’s my Dad). He has waved his
lecture fee for AMTA so I hope you’ll come out take this class and others at our Spring Convention. I’ll leave
you with this thought by Carol Welch “Movement is a medicine for creating change in a person's physical,
emotional, and mental states.”
       May your physical, emotional and mental states be healthy, wealthy and wise in 2010.

Orthopedic Massage for Complicated Shoulder Conditions. This powerful presentation is requested throughout the world. Based on
structural integrations and our revolutionary joint capsule work, you will combine multiple disciplines and learn a systematic approach to
getting immediate results in patients with severe thoracic outlet and frozen shoulder problems. We will also address rotator cuff injuries,
bicipital tendonitis, and shoulder impingements problems. We will focus on modalities such as functional assessment, myofascial release,
neuromuscular therapy, scar tissue mobilization techniques, P.N.F. stretching, strengthening and unique patient home care protocols. The
unique joint capsule work has helped release thousands of frozen shoulder conditions and will revolutionize your results with complicated
shoulder conditions.
Pelvic Stabilization “The Key to Structural Integration”. This unique presentation will address the clinical approach to assessment,
treatment and rehabilitation of the spine and pelvis. Specific conditions addressed will be low back pain, SI joint dysfunction, and lumbar
compression and disc pathologies of the lower back. In addition, we will address hip pain, hip capsule problems and sciatica. Primary
modalities utilized will be functional assessment, myofascial release, neuromuscular therapy, multidirectional fractioning, eccentric scar
tissue alignment, P.N.F. stretching and patient home care protocols. This unique multidisciplinary approach to deep tissue release for
structural alignment will be completely pain free and will allow for immediate and permanent results; even in the most complicated pain
conditions.
Orthopedic Massage for Complicated Elbow, Wrist and Hand Conditions. This seminar will teach you to eliminate conditions like
carpal tunnel syndrome, tendonitis, nerve entrapments and progressive joint arthritis in as little as one session. Utilizing modalities such as
functional assessment, myofascial release, neuromuscular therapy, scar tissue mobilization, myoskeletal alignment, P.N.F. stretching and
strengthening in a precise order you will eliminate even the most complicated pain conditions immediately and permanently. You will
empower the client to control underlying factors such as repetitive motions and poor postures and teach the client precise home care
protocols for life long, pain free living. Our revolutionary approach for pain free scar tissue mobilization and tendon pain release will bring
your work to a level you have never imagined. Through the use of human dissections, computerized pathologies, and animated structural
movements, you will match the exact modality to the underlying condition, restoring structural balance and maximizing performance
potential in all clients.

Level 1 presents the Thai attitude and approach to bodywork, including the cultural and spiritual foundations which are essential to under-
standing this modality. Participants learn the techniques for stretching, range of motion, cross-fiber, and meridian work and a basic
sequence for treating the whole person in supine, side-lying, prone, and sitting positions. In addition, meditations and breathing techniques
are shown that can enhance any bodywork. The style taught is similar to that practiced in Chiang Mai (“Northern style”) enhanced with
elements from other styles and Robert's 20 years of experience. The workshop is very experiential with lots of guided practice and help
with body mechanics, first on the floor and then on the table. An instructional booklet prepared by Robert with pictures of all the moves is
included.

This class helps the therapists deal with the inevitable dual relationships within their practices and how they need to work on their bounda-
ries in these areas. We will define ethics and boundaries, discuss treatment of our peers, and will address the dilemma of dual relationships.
This class meets the required NCBTMB Standard V in ethics.

                                                       The Gray Areas

Ethics are part of the foundation of the massage practice. This class helps therapists deal with the "gray areas" of ethics, instead of
the obvious issues. We will define ethics and standards of practice, we will discuss ethical danger areas and defining sacred space.


Participants should be prepared for group discussion, sharing of experiences, laughter, bonding, and unique ethical dilemmas.
