Life is beautiful—and, often times, a little crazy. That’s why, in the midst of it all, it is crucial we remember to breathe (literally!). Amid the chaos, and sometimes unbeknownst to us, we will hold our breath in times of excitement, stress, anxiety, giddiness, or surprise. Any Board Certified Massage Therapist (BCTMB) will surely tell you how important breathing is to your overall health, but have you ever stopped to think about why it is so important?

All of us, regardless of our chosen profession, enjoy different ways to relax after a hard day’s work. For some of you, that may mean spending some quality time on the couch with your favorite primetime television shows a few nights a week. Is it possible, though, that this same relaxing activity can cause your muscles so much tension? This may be happening to you—and you don’t even know it.

Each New Year brings the opportunity for new beginnings. For NCBTMB and our profession alike, 2015 also brings with it many changes—namely, our exit from licensure. With this major change in our rearview mirror, this New Year brings with it a renewed focus on NCBTMB’s core programs: Board Certification, our evolving Approved Provider Continuing Education Program, Assigned School Program, as well as finding new ways to support our growing number of National and Board Certificants. We truly believe this will be our best year yet—and we look forward to having you along for the journey.
