Physicist William Thompson, better known as Lord Kelvin, introduced a new way to measure temperature in 1848. Although the existence of an "absolute zero" was widely accepted in the scientific circles of his time, Lord Kelvin was the first to calculate the mathematical formula for the scale that bears his name. Like most scientists, Lord Kelvin was a proponent of measurement and is credited with saying, "If you cannot measure it, you cannot improve it." "Metrics" are defined as a way to measure something, or as the result gained from measurement.

It's an issue that sometimes troubles therapists, but through years of successfully treating fellow colleagues for it, I have found different ways to work through it.

The reason we now have the MBLEx is because the National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork (NCBTMB) became intoxicated on their own power. NCBTMB was to be a certification body. It was to create a certification in "massage and bodywork" and then develop specialty certification exams.
