On an assignment is no time to get ill.

No, we’re not talking about the Beastie Boys, we are talking about your health and well being. As a traveling therapist you are well aware of that certain something that it takes to be a successful traveler. You must have the right personality to be able to jump right in and be confident in your skills, no matter where you are.

There’s No Need To Go It Alone, Take the Clan With You

The possibilities are endless with a traveling therapy career and having your family along with you can easily be a part of it. With limitless locations to choose from, experiences a plenty and the rewards that are constant, it would be a shame not to share that with the ones you are closest with, your immediate family.

Therapists, reach out and help in Haiti.

If ever there was a time for the global community to come together, it is now. As you are all well aware, the country of Haiti was literally shaken to its core from a massive earthquake and the aftermath that has left behind a land and its people in shambles. The response from around the world has been great and I hope that it continues for some time, as the country will need a tremendous amount of help to get it back to some sort of normalcy.
