Old and New, Dogs, Tricks, and Me

Mike Macy-RMT
Who says old dogs can't learn new tricks--or remember old ones previously forgotten?  

Last October, Mike enrolled in the Therapeutic Massage program at Alaska Career College.   Explains Mike, "I did this to broaden my knowledge and learn more about muscles and the business of massage and bodywork.  When I began my career 24 years ago, training opportunities were limited.   Now massage has become a legitimate, respected field of study.”  These many months and 920 contact hours later, Mike has graduated with honors and earned his Massage Therapist license.  At graduation on July 10th, 2012, Mike was Class Speaker.  Mike reports, "My primary focus continues to be combining CranioSacral Therapy, Visceral Manipulation, and Acupressure to optimize the body's deepest structures; however, when there is muscle involvement, I'll be much better equipped to treat it."
