I'm scheduled to take the Simple Contact class in San Francisco next month, but am excited by the discussions here and wanted to introduce myself:
I have been a PT for 6 years, and a bodyworker for 14 years (trained in Shiatsu, Rosen Method, and Chi Nei Tsang--Taoist form of abdominal massage). My path has taken me from "alternative" medicine which continually impressed me on how effective and life-changing it could be (even with my healthy scepticism I was constantly amazed at the changes I saw in people) to a Master's in PT which helped ground me in the sciences and evidence-based practice but definitely has its limitations. I am looking for an approach that blends the best of both and takes a "bigger picture" of what health is and Simple Contact and MFR seem to be great starts (I took MFR I with John Barnes last year).
I own my own practice and am also looking to move away from insurance billing towards a cash practice (providing Superbills) and would welcome any feedback on how best to accomplish this.
On a personal note: I'm married with a beautiful 2 month old son and like to hike and dance.
Great to be here and looking forward to the class next month.

Thank you for taking the time to read here and then actually post. You'll find in a few weeks that this is a rare event among my prospective students and certainly among those who have been invited here personally by me at the courses.
I think you've an interesting background and I welcome your attendance.
