Yesterday I did something I have never done before. I talked about massage therapy with high school students. Not every student that attended the Feather River College Career Day came by to talk to me, but the ones that did were very impressive. There is a growing number of teenagers interested in alternative medicine. This interest will continue to grow the popularity of complementary and alternative medicine, known as CAM. And for those that were interested in allopathic medicine, what society has thought of as medicine for centuries, I planted the seeds of change. Society will only experience wholistic wellbeing when we once again combine the two disciplines - contemporary medicine and CAM. They were once very much a part of each other, I trust with this generation's and the generations to come we will get back to natural healing and see less and less use of synthetic chemical drugs.
So, I am happy to report that CAM is popular among the youth of today. Let's keep it going.
With Dain Blanton, 2000 Olympic Gold Medalist in Beach Volleyball, who talked to the high schoolers about choices, success and failure. I especially was awestruck by his statistic that of 259 tournaments he was in, he only won 11, that's 4%! Reminding us, it's not the failures people remember, it is the successes!
