I feel as if I've been living in limbo since I got out of school last Summer. I passed the national exam last November. This Friday morning the Alabama Board of Massage Therapy will be meeting in Montgomery to approve license applications. I don't foresee any problem getting approved. I've jumped through all the hoops (that I know of).
It's been a strange experience for me. I am ready to get on with my practice - get on with life.
I spent some money Monday. I got online and bought a massage table and a massage chair, along with some necessary accessories. There are a couple of other things that I will need - but the big stuff is on it's way. I'm pretty sure I got a good table. There's a lot to choose from when picking out a good massage table - a lot of stuff to consider. It's one of those decisions that you have to make, hoping that you're not overlooking something. I guess I would have to compare it to a first time guitar purchase. I spent a long time researching tables and I'm pretty sure that I made the right purchase. No matter what - I'm stuck with it for a long while.
I bought the best massage chair out there - no question. Oakworks makes a Portal Pro model in which I was basing my research. After looking everywhere I knew to look, I decided to spend the money on the best one out there.
Hopefully by the end of the week I will be a licensed massaged therapist.
