I can't imagine my profession without this critical support structure.
In the 15 years I have been practicing massage therapy in the Las Vegas metropolitan area, I have come to realize: I am unable to assist every person that can benefit from including regular massage therapy in their wellness goals. This is where the Massage Therapy Foundation has and continues to play a big part - there are so many places where massage therapy can help, and that requires a TEAM, bigger than One or a multitude of single practitioners to have an impact, improving qualities of life for people everywhere.
The MTF's programs create foundations for massage practices through coaching, collecting, vetting & publishing RESEARCH so that massage can gain efficacy and be understood and accepted by more people and healthcare professionals as an integrative method for an improved quality of life for Every Person.
Many, many people can benefit from massage therapy: elite athlete, illness or burn survivor, -plegic or ambulatory-challenged, stressed-out office worker or military veteran...to name a few. Any person can benefit from massage therapy.
Research that supports my belief is available throught the contribution to the research database by massage therapy professionals and the research community and through the diligent 25 years of work that the Massage Therapy Foundation has funded and clearinghoused that validates: massage is good.
I am REALLY ExCiTeD to be representing the Massage Therapy Foundation as one of 3, awesome runners in the 2016 Boston Marathon & John Hancock Non-Profit Marathon program!!
Raising awareness for the "need for more studies" is my goal - knowing that Your Donation is used for exactly that purpose is my pleasure!
Thank you for your donation to move forward and bolster funding for research and community service grants, the open source professional journal the International Journal for Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork, the services and information that the Massage Therapy Foundation provides. Your gift helps so many people, directly or indirectly, who would not otherwise receive massage therapy realize its benefits!
