Portland, Oregon's Cancer Survivorship and Bodywork Zine by Compassion Arts PDX, LLC
Howdy! Welcome to my brand spankin’ new blog! Gotta start somewhere, so might as well be with a riveting top ten list!
I’ve had the iPad 2 for a wee bit now. I am increasingly impressed with it’s capabilities. I set out straight away to seeing all that I could accomplish in it, to help my massage therapy practice. Here’s my top ten list of things I’ve done in the past couple of weeks…
1. Use Square to process credit card transactions. Clients dig signing with their fingertip!
2. Take handwritten notes while studying a video playing on the iMac. Post these notes as images on Facebook to share with my bodywork geek chums. This was done using Bamboo Paper.
4. Find current research on tensegrity and massage using Dragon Medical.
5. Show clients detailed images of muscular anatomy (very helpful before pterygoid work!) with Muscle System Pro II. And, yeah… I know this isn’t a shot of pterygoids, but the deep cervicals are way cool!
6. Show clients and massage Therapists animations of breath mechanics and living fascia with videos snagged from YouTube.
7. Create a 2-up flier for my Myofascial Study Group with Pages.
8. Watch some amazing talks on the plasticity of the brain, consciousness and it’s connections to the body with TED.
9. Record music with Garageband for inclusion in the next bodywork video (4 guitar parts, 2 vocal tracks, plus drum and bass parts using virtual instruments). Check out the track… it’s appropriately named First Doodle.
10. Begin freely writing again, producing all kinds of content with the super svelte word processor, iA Writer. Big fan of this app! This text was written using iA Writer.
Oh, but this list goes up to eleven!
11. Slash my way through the bloodlines, developing my skill with the blade and taking down Inferno Paladins with a final thrust deep into the viscera with Infinity Blade.
Yeah… iPad rocks! Dig it!
