Massage therapists have many thoughts and feelings about their organizations and organizational leaders. This week, Cal and Cathy reach into another time zone for a perspective from the other side of the world. Ann Davey, CEO of Massage and Myotherapy Australia, is on the podcast to talk about massage regulation, COVID concerns, and the practice of massage therapy in Australia. In this episode you will discover that although our toilet flushes swirl in opposite directions, but our hope and concerns are going the same way.
