Kelly BowersCEO, The Healing Core
Kelly Bowers became fascinated with the business of massage when asked to teach business practices at her massage school in 2005. Before she became a massage therapist, she spent 20 years as a technical writer, a career she refers to as “professional explaining”. She found she could apply the same skills to teaching business practices to massage therapists: figure out how it works, explain it in a way that respects your students’ needs.
Kelly has built a private practice from scratch - twice. Along the way she’s figured out what works and what doesn't. She has applied her experience and skills to creating short courses about basic business skills – creating a business plan, bookkeeping, setting your fees, evaluating the health of your practice, deciding whether or not to accept credit cards, etc. – that massage therapists can use right away.
Kelly finished her massage studies at the Potomac Massage Training Institute in Washington DC in 2000 and began teaching business practices at PMTI in 2005. She and her business partner, Kitty Southworth LMT, founded The Healing Core (thehealingcore.com) in 2010 and are NCBTMB approved providers.
Kelly has taught business practices for AMTA-Florida, AMTA-DC, and at the 2013 AMTA national convention. She’s written quarterly business columns for the AMTA-DC newsletter since 2005. She also maintains a blog about the business of massage, This Touching Business (thistouchingbusiness.blogspot.com) and has a private practice in Washington DC (bowershours.com).
Ryan HoymeProducer/Creator, www.massagenerd.com
Ryan Hoyme, aka 'the massage nerd', has been a massage therapist since 1997 and a massage instructor since 2000. He started www.massagenerd.com so that students who missed class could catch up on the material they had missed. His website provides access to all his information, ebooks and videos. He has more massage clips on YouTube www.youtube.com/massagenerd than any other website, and his videos average 150,000 views a day. Ryan constantly works behind the scenes editing videos. He also has a weekly massage show interviewing the top names (and soon to be top names) in the massage therapy world.
Andrea LipomiContinuing Education Provider, ConfidentMassage.com, Founder, The Young Thumbs

She can be found performing five-star massage treatments in a gorgeous resort spa most days of the week, and spending quality time with her husband – also a licensed massage therapist – when she’s not up to her elbows in oil. Andrea enjoys hiking, potlucks, dark chocolate, and all things Depeche Mode. She is also a licensed esthetician, a founding member of The Young Thumbs massage blog, a CE Las Vegas partner, and an NCBTMB-approved continuing education provider at ConfidentMassage.com.
