A client with advanced cancer was looking forward to the massage session in his home. There had been so many medical appointments lately. So many scans and procedures and hard conversations. This soothing, gentle massage was exactly what he needed — touch without a medical procedure attached it and he couldn't wait to escape it all for an hour.

I believe people as a whole want to help one another. We see this from time to time in spontaneous and random acts of kindness and in how we rally around one another in times of need or distress. In times of unimaginable loss or danger, often we see personal agendas put aside, politics abandoned, and the act of caring for our fellow man become center and forefront.

Everyday we have a limited amount of time, physical strength and mental energy to earn a living. When we are at work, we are basically trading time for money. The amount we earn is influenced, to a certain degree, by our education, experience, skill level, track record, etc. When we trade out time for money, we are only able to earn as much money as we are willing to trade our time.

A wise man once said, "If I had $5 to start a business, I would put $4 into marketing and $1 into the business." You must acquire marketing skills to be successful, as you are always marketing. You are always selling yourself, your services, repeat appointments, products, whatever, for as long as you are a therapists, so get good at it sooner rather than later.

There are numerous orthopedic disorders that develop a common name by which they are more frequently known. Examples include runner's knee or tennis elbow. A shoulder separation is another condition that has come to be known by its common name, although sometimes that is misleading. The term shoulder separation is often misconstrued as a dislocation of the humeral head from the glenoid fossa, but that is inaccurate.
