October 21-27 is American Massage Therapy Association’s (AMTA) 16th annual National Massage Therapy Awareness Week (NMTAW).

What is NMTAW?

National Massage Therapy Awareness Week was created by AMTA to raise public awareness of the benefits of therapeutic massage, attract media attention to nationwide activities being carried out by AMTA chapters, professional members, students and schools as an opportunity to demonstrate their professionalism and skill. It is an excellent opportunity for AMTA members across the country to share the importance of consumers choosing AMTA members because they are highly qualified professionals who contribute to the heath and well-being of the public through massage.

Here are a few links to documents that the AMTA has put together for consumer awareness…
AMTA Consumer Fact Sheet
Living Right: Talking to Your Physician about Massage
Massage Therapy Research Roundup

As a consumer, you can also subscribe to AMTA’s “e-touch” Consumer E-Newsletter to keep on top of the latest trends in massage, for health and wellness tips, and massage in your community!

As a therapist, click this link to see what benefits you get with membership. Because I wasn’t aware of this while in massage school, I wanted to also let you know that membership is open to students as well.

As always, I hope you find this information informative!
