Move your business forward: a case study

By Sarah Bryan, MTI member

Sarah Bryan

I have been in clinical practice for seven years and I love what I do. However, a year ago, I was almost at the point of giving up. Despite my passion, skills and bundle of qualifications, I was losing more money than I was making, in a desperate attempt to try and create a viable business. I knew that, if I had not found a viable solution by the end of 2018, I would have to throw in the towel, after six and a half years of trying and failing to make things work.

Judging the National Massage Championships: safeguarding standards and embracing diversity

By Earle Abrahamson, MTI Chair

National Massage Championships 1

I was recently asked to judge the National Massage Championships at London Olympia, the inaugural event of this kind in the UK.

When approached to serve as a judge I was sceptical about expectations, standards and the purpose of such a championship.

After meeting my fellow judges, it was refreshing to learn that we all share the same views and that each one of us is passionate about promoting massage therapy and raising standards across different genres and disciplines in massage and bodywork.
