LOL Funny thing is, I was trained in PA by an exceptional massage therapist who was ALSO trained in PA. It must be one of those things that its a law but no one really pays any attention to it.

It must be, because I didn't even know that different states have different requirements for that. I told my parents I wanted to go to that week long class in VA for it and they want to come with me so they can get a vacation out of it. LOL. I won't be going for another year and a half or two years though, if I do go.

Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail...

I'm doing an apprenticeship for equine massage. I learn on site and I'm currently on my level 200 which is therapy. I have my certificate for maintenance massage and passed with flying colors. By the time I'm done with my level 200 I should be able to test and get my license. I should be done with my level 300 which is sports, by the end of the summer. It's a very fun course. There's an individual program put on by the Northwest School of Animal Massage that I'm training in. It's a private on site apprenticeship and it's very rewarding.
My vet has commented on how my horses have benefited from weekly massages from my practicing on them when she comes to do chiropractic work on them. The other horses in the barn don't mind a massage once every few weeks for practice. I love it!

When life gives you lemons....chuck em at whoever is giving them to you!
I don't want lemons! I want cookies!
