Prior to beginning my massage practice, I had been a producing local access tv show for a number of years. I got the idea that if people knew more about massage, they would take advantage of it, so I tried doing a regular hour session in the studio. Our first show was aired July 4th, 1994, and I got five new clients that day! From then on, my crew and I would gather at the studio once a month and shoot two sessions, which aired during primetime twice a week. By 2004 we had produced over 200 shows/sessions, including guest practitioners occasionally, and often clients who had emailed their wish to be on the show. The result was that I attracted a very diverse client base and gained experience across many different social/economic groups; it also served to bring people who had ‘tried everything’ and had lost hope. In the end I stopped doing the show because the management at the station made creating a safe space in the studio impossible, which was a pre-requistite for therapeutic sessions. I am in the process of uploading more of the shows; here are several that provide a look at the show over the years. Enjoy!
