Week 5: Midterms

SUNM Experience:

Last week we gathered to hear the story of Naprapathy in New Mexico from the director, Pat Nuzzo, and some political allies (local lobbyists). It was a fascinating tale of one thing leading to another and the right people peppering the way. It’s also a tale of the work selling itself on results. If it didn’t help people, New Mexico wouldn’t be paving thee way for its revival.

 

It was inspiring and encouraging. And let me tell you (in case you’re not from around these parts), if it can happen in New Mexico, it can happen anywhere. Though most people look quizzically at me when I explain I’m studying to be a Naprapath, I don’t think it will be very long until it’s as understood as Chiropractic or Acupuncture. It will take some dedicated professionals to pave the way, but it seems like an obvious outcome to me. It’s a very exciting time to become a Naprapath, anywhere you are.

 

 

My Student Pulse:

We’re in the middle of midterms already! I’d like to say that I’m feeling overly smug and ready, especially with my experience in the bodywork world. But I’m not. We’ve covered a lot of ground quickly and for my older mind, retention is most definitely a challenge. All three exams are in topics I understand clearly, but the details are eluding me at this point. All I can do is the best I can do.

 

The business class is a paper, but even that is a challenging exploration of ethical issues. Perhaps someone would like to tell me whether the elderly or the young are more ethical? Men or women??
