There is many a myth in our industry, and while I’ve written about and tried to change some opinions around them, I haven’t been able to cover them all. Fortunately, people like Daniel Wonnocott are trying to do the same and did a great job busting this myth.

There is no shortage of modality classes you can take to learn a different way to touch your patients. However, what if we paid more attention to the concepts behind a treatment application, rather than just the modality itself? I for one think this is FAR more important than any modality and fortunately, this article agrees with me.

“Modalities vs. Concepts in Massage Therapy” – Tania Valasquez

This seems to be a hotly debated topic at times, but it’s a necessary one. It’s important for our business, but also as this article shows, charging for late cancellations is also important for the therapeutic relationship and our mental health.

“Why I Charge For Late Cancellation” – Megan MacCutcheon
