    Yes, yes, and yes to what everyone else has said and then some. What a gift, not only to us personally but to all those we touch, literally and intellectually. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. I am so looking forward to studying it at leisure.

    Tspeller, welcome! I'm a massage therapist and fairly new myself. These folks have been great and you can see for yourself here what wonderful, unexpected things await.

    All of you inspire me in every way.

    The website the school uses is authorshare.com. It allows you to share them publicly, privately, as video, embedded, downloaded, etc etc. I think it would be a great addition to a lot of the information presented here. It can be checked out here.
    www.slideshare.com is a great one as well.

    I'm excited this year in my adjunct teaching role I am helping in the lab with the first year PT students when they first get introduced to soft tissue work. I was a little worried talking to the primary instructor in concerns over the whole fascia issue knowing my stance and not sure of hers. But she reports being skeptical and open to any info I want to share. I know they get more info later in other courses, but I think it will be fun laying down a little seed to question what they may hear latter. I'm definitely reading this info and trying to absorb as much as possible to help my teaching.

    Yay - inoculate them while they're young. :thumbs_up

    Well, maybe something like that would be possible. Maybe Bernard can figure something out.
    Anyway, thanks Scot.

    Diane, truly excellent. Not only the information but also the presentation.

    Since my education is a blended style we get a lot of voiceover powerpoints. I know I would happily pay for something like that if you ever record a talk you do and put it with this.

    I know I have paid a lot for much less just as it is.

    Hi tspeller and Tony!

    Wonderful that you are letting the blinkers soak off tspeller.
    Tony, from that particular guy's perspective, I'm a termite steadily eating away the studs in the Fortress of Mesodoom. I think his salience detection network sounded an alarm, which is why he didn't want to hang around. I like to think I sent him off because he couldn't answer back with anything intelligent, just throwing studies at me in a cloud of ink, which are easily shown to have no clinical relevance at all, unless you take your patient's fascia out and stretch it for 30 minutes then reinsert it, without the patient's brain noticing and trying to block you.

    Diane,

    I would also like to thank you (and the other moderators) for your generosity. Not only are you generous with your knowledge, but also with your time and patience. I am amazed how willing you are to continue to engage in challenging discussions with people who can be quite difficult. It was quite a contrast when I saw a prominent bodywork educator block Diane from a Facebook discussion because she wouldn't agree with him.

    The one thing that never sat right with me was hearing about all these wonderful techniques from the 'modality emperors', but they were prohibitively expensive to access. I respect everyone's right to make a living, but it seems a shame to make something inaccessible to those who genuinely want to help others. Perhaps those 'modality emperors' should rethink their business model. My inability to attend their courses led me to my own independent inquiries which led me here. Now I no longer want what they are selling.

    Thanks again,

    Tony

    Hi Diane,

    this is my first post! I would like to say thank you for your sharing your fantastic work and altering my perception on bodywork. I am 3yr osteopathic student with a background in sports & remedial massage therapy. Over the last few years the more i have learnt, the more i have critiqued what i have previously thought was 'right' and my 'style' as a therapist has drastically changed. In the last few weeks since joining somasimple, i have appreciated the wealth of knowledge and experience you guys have on this forum.

    I have enjoyed reading many of the current debates between the fascial/mesodermalist, MFR gang and the at somasimple team. I am not sure where i stand on the matter, i am just enjoying and appreciating the fantastic learning experience these debates produce!

    Studying at one of the prominent osteopathic colleges we are fed the story that manipulation (HVLT) is a positive way forward and being a good 'manipulator' will assist you in being a competent/'osteopathic' practitioner. My perception of manipulation has changed due to this forum and i am now willing to be a bit of a rebel with my technique and clinic tutors and argue against utilising this technique, especially when there are a wide range of alternate techniques that can be utilised. So thank you and the team for opening up my perception.

    I will now try and digest your method and see how i get on.

    Thanks again for all your hard work.:teeth:
