Canadian Massage Schools

If you are thinking of undertaking a massage course, you should take a look at Massage Schools in Canada. In as little as 18 months, you could begin an exciting future as a Registered Massage Therapist (RMT), with training from a Canadian massage school.

If you are someone who is dedicated to the field of natural healing, and you have a real interest in helping others to achieve optimum health, you might just be primed for a massage education. In Canada, the practicing massage therapist is also called a massotherapist, and there are several levels of education available. In less than two years, you can earn a diploma or certificate in massage at a massage school in Canada. More advanced studies at a four-year Canadian massage college will earn you a degree, and qualify you to apply for a massage therapy license in Canada.

Canadian massage schools provide both theoretical and practical coursework to give students a well-rounded massage education. Massage students are given numerous opportunities to work with actual patients, often including outreach and community programs. Clinical practice can take place in a hospitals or massage clinics, or in a private massage practice under the tutelage of a Registered Massage Therapist (RMT). This extensive, hands-on experience will help you to hone your massage techniques and improve your proficiency.

Your future massage practice will no doubt expose you to a wide assortment of patients, with varying reasons for seeking your services. You could specialize in one type of massage in order to treat one type of patient, such as the elderly, infants, people with soft-tissue injuries, athletes, and others. This is why it is vitally important that your massage training includes a variety of styles, modalities, and techniques so that you can provide the optimum benefits of massage to your patients.

Before enrolling in a Canadian massage school, be sure to carefully review the curriculum, tuition costs, and accreditation. Many of the massage schools in Canada require the applicant to possess a bachelor's degree (preferably pre-med) to qualify for enrollment. Take all of this into consideration before you plunk down any of your hard-earned money on a massage course in Canada.

How Average Students Can Win At The IIM Personal Interview

However what should your strategy be if you have
no awards and achievements (other than being
school prefect - somehow all MBA candidates are
school prefects) to speak of and you found yourself
selected by one of the IIM's or other top tier

For you to succeed here are a few pointers that can
aid in the process:

1) Be clear about your goals: In your case you will
have to be definitive about what you want to achieve
in the next 3-5 years and exactly how an MBA will
fit in the picture. Suppose you are an Arts graduate,
suppose Psychology Honors. Now you should focus
on the industry to begin with- suppose Finance and
Investment Analysis. You can state that a major
part of the investment analysis is examining trading
psychology. Why some stocks tick despite poor
fundamentals and some fail to move despite good
fundamentals. You can state that you have enough
of numerical understanding and backed by an MBA
in finance you could carve out a strong niche in the
area of Investment Analysis and Dealing of

2) Show your ability to think business: If you have
never won a award, examine activities that seem to
add value to some process. For example you could
start a blog on a topic such as Tax planning for
home based professionals. Talk about what kind of
advice and articles you wrote for the blog and how
popular your blog was by examining the page views
received from the blog. You can start a blog on
wordpress or blogger as they allow free blogs and
also have a statistics section to measure how many
page views you received.

3) Be well prepared to talk about your academics: Be
clear of the basic fundamentals, as they will surely
want to know how serious you were about your
studies. Go over the major fundamentals and be sure
to be able to answer them

It is not an easy task to prepare for IIM Personal Interview questions . So don't punish yourself
mentally if the initial answers you write don't seem
impressive enough.

Michigan Law Schools - How to Find & Get Into a Great Law School in Michigan

There are six great law schools in the State of Michigan. These include the Ave Maria School of Law in Ann Arbor, the University of Detroit Mercy School of Law in Detroit, the University of Michigan Law School in Ann Arbor, the Michigan State University College of Law in East Lansing, the Thomas M. Cooley School of Law in Lansing, and Wayne State University Law School in Detroit.

Of course, not all Michigan law schools are alike, and in choosing a Michigan law school - as you would with any school - you should make sure that you are making the correct choice for YOU. Unfortunately, far to many prospective law students fall into the trap of letting magazines and artificial law school rankings make the choice for them. If you were to do that, you might focus on the University of Michigan Law School, which admittedly enjoys an outstanding national reputation, to the exclusion of several other excellent law schools in Michigan or elsewhere.

One of the things I try and emphasize to students trying to select a law school is that you get a very similar education no matter where you go. The "elite" schools will never admit that, but its true. Moreover, having been a practicing lawyer now for almost 10 years, I assure you that where you went to law school will very quickly become virtually meaningless to your employers and colleagues. I've known great lawyers and terrible lawyers who went to great schools - and I've known great lawyers and terrible lawyers who went to no-name night schools.

Therefore, if you've decided you want to go to law school in Michigan, you should carefully analyze which of the excellent choices will be the best law school for you. If your aim to get a high-paying job in Manhattan immediately after graduation, the University of Michigan Law School is probably a place you should target. On the other hand, if you're looking to set up a local practice on of the smaller local schools may be your best choice.

Although the substance of what you will learn is largely the same at every school, the environment is definitely not. That's why, if you've decided you want to go to a Michigan Law School, you should visit every school you're considering to get a feel for the campus and physical surroundings. You should also speak with some students to see what they have to say about the atmosphere. Some law schools are definitely more friendly that others.

No two Michigan law schools are created alike, just as no two law students are created alike. Finding a good match should be your top priority. You're going to spend three years of your life and tens of thousands of dollars - regardless of which Michigan law school you select - and you should do everything possible to make sure its not a miserable investment.

When I was choosing which law school to attend I spent hundreds of hours and thousands of dollars researching and in many cases visiting the eleven schools that made my final list. In the end, I didn't choose the highest ranked or most prestigious school I got into, but I did choose the best law school for me. And I made the right choice.

This is just one of the many topics I discuss in my ebook Covert Tactics for Getting Into the Law School of Your Choice and in the Covert Tactics Law School Newsletter, both of which are available at my website.

College Prep - How to Read a Book for Success

Probably the most important skill that you will ever acquire is reading. It doesn't matter if you read fast or slow you need to read and read often. Many would argue that reading is no longer necessary for success but that just isn't true. Although some have made it without reading, studies show that the number one common habit among successful people is reading.

But just because you know how to read doesn't mean you are reading as well as you could. You also need to know how to correctly read a book. You need to be able to make the book yours which is an intimate process involving action. You cannot master a book being passive. You must think, envision and imagine what is being conveyed to you by the author.

Like any relationship reading a book is work and what you get out of the relationship is directly related to what you put into it. If you don't get from a book what you expected examine your own actions before you condemn the book or the author.

Were you true to the book reading process? Did you take time to build a relationship between you, the author and the book? Or did you hurry the process, skip the four-play and rush to the climax? Leaving all involved dissatisfied and wanting.

If you truly desire to make a book your own and gleam from it all its treasure. You must develop a habit of reading and a system to enhance that habit. Here are some suggestions to help you get started on in a habit of intelligent reading.

Read the front cover, the back cover and the dust jacket.

First, you must take time to examine the front cover; then read the title and the subtitle. Begin thinking about what the title or subtitle is trying to tell you about the book. Now examine the back cover and read the summary if one is provided, if not read the testimonials. What are they trying to tell you about the author, the book or the content? If there is a dust jacket read what the publisher included here.

Don't rush this process take your time and get to know your book.

Read the table of contents.

Next, turn to the table of contents and read each chapter title. Study the chapter explanations and get a feel for the book's structure. Many authors spend a great deal of time on the table of contents but most readers ignore the table of contents. Start a new habit and spend some time with the table of contents.

Note: If the book has an index take time to go through the index as well.

Read the preface, forward and introduction.

Now, read the preface, the forward and the introduction; read them carefully and thoughtfully. Here you will get your first glimpse of the author's intent. Don't hurry let the message come to you.

Choose a few passages to read.

Open the book and begin to turn the pages, stop occasionally and read a few sentences. Thumb through the book and read a few pages in a row but never more than that. Begin to get a feel for the main theme of the book.

Categorize your books.

By now you should have a pretty good idea of what the book is about and be able to categorize it. This is important because you don't want to read a science book the same way you read a poetry book. There are different types of books and different rules for reading them. Your possible categories are:

  • practical
  • theoretical
  • imaginative
  • stories
  • history
  • science
  • mathematics
  • canonical
  • philosophy
  • social science
Knowing where each book belongs determines how you continue the process to make each book your own. So, begin taking your time with your new book or re-kindle the flame with a book from your past. You won't regret it.
