Sue is giving you suggestions for what you can do with social media to showcase your skills, talents, experience, education and training. Martin is giving you suggestions for how to increase the things you have to show...

Answered by Ariadne Greenberg on Mar 05, 2015

You should also check with places that offer professional liability insurance (if you are going solo you will want that) and with places you might wish to work (to see what they require). You do not want to spend money on something that is not going to work rather than getting what you need righ aw...

Answered by Ariadne Greenberg on Mar 04, 2015

Rules vary state by state, first as to who can provide what sort of services, and second as to who can bill insurance for services. That said, you are to be commended for seeking out quality education before performing services, regardless of what you might be able to 'get away' with. The best...

Answered by Ariadne Greenberg on Mar 04, 2015

You presumably have a table and the other massage tools. The taping is not going to require much space or large expensive tools. Do you primarily do myofascial work as part of your bodywork, or will you be teaching SMR? I've done some work with that, mostly as a way to understand some of the ener...

A lot of what you are requesting can be found in yoga. The problem is that it is hard to pull out, say, a single pranayama technique, and get the benefits you would by doing it within the context of the whole. You could try Herbert Benson's relaxation response. It has been around for many dec...

Trainers that have PFIT certifications, where and how do we NOW renew?

Answered by Ariadne Greenberg on Mar 02, 2015

I don't know much about this organization; there are a ton of trainer certifications out there. I tried to look them up, and I can see there seems to be some difficulty. They have a record on the list of certifying agencies on the IDEA page, and they seem to have a facebook page up, but the site ...

Taking the Plunge into Certification

9 Answers | Asked by Tom Borromeo on Feb 27, 2015

Answered by Ariadne Greenberg on Feb 28, 2015

I do not see where you are located, but have one other thing you might consider. Is there a Y near you?

6 Answers | Asked by Rod Sims on Feb 27, 2015

Answered by Ariadne Greenberg on Feb 28, 2015

A long time ago people who worked in gyms tended to be those who worked out. It was rare to have someone with a degree (it was rare to have many degree programs outside of the world of sports and coaching). Group exercise and personal training certifications grew out of a drive for the industry to...

I was wondering what people did for their own health insurance

6 Answers | Asked by Kathleen O'donnell on Feb 26, 2015

Answered by Ariadne Greenberg on Feb 26, 2015

Having health insurance is indeed an important issue in 'going solo'. I have insurance through my husband. I did not go into full time fitness until I had that in place. However, I had started to move myself into a place where I could work fully on my own, before I had that option available t...

Tai chi

Answered by Ariadne Greenberg on Feb 26, 2015

I agree with the others. Tai Chi is not something you can learn to teach in a weekend. Here is someone who is closer to your area who does offer trainings and information on the discipline. It might help you to have an idea if you would like to start doing some training in the form yourself t...
