Default Hello Room!!

Welcome to everyone! I'm BG your Room Moderator. There are some wonderful and interesting subjects out there pertaining to alternative and complimentary health issues. Many are rather controversial so if you can't document good studies be prepared for an interesting discussion. Lets keep it fun and informative.

I am a Practicing Massage Therapist with a background in Nutrition and Food Science. I hope we can bring some nonconventional view points to the foreground so our CE Community can enjoy, discuss and learn something new!! After all thats what we do best!

Wow, you have 548 posts and this is just the second I've seen from you.. yet we share common interests. (Personal trainer and hobby nutritionist myself)
How could I miss all of them?

I hope to see some interesting stuff from you. I already knew about myofascial release, but, if you've got more good stuff like that, do share.

I've read a number of your posts and have enjoyed hearing what you have to say about alternative medicine. Traditional western medicine has its good points but just doesn't always deal with a lot of problems in helpful way. Sorting through all the info on other approaches is exhausting and confusing for those of us who don't know how to separate the good advice from the bad. From what I've seen, you know a lot about a variety of subjects. It's great that you've accepted the position and it's nice to have you on the mod squad

Best wishes,
Misty

Thank you both very much! I am looking forward to having your help increasing the interest in this room. The whole idea is to get good information out and available for sharing and discussing.

I do some...I don't really specify or separate it from my massage...its just a part of what I do. I know several people who use Reiki exclusively and are very talented with it.

That's what I was wondering. I hear it can make for an awesome massage!
