AMTA kicks off National Massage Therapy Awareness Week Today through October 31st!
I feel like this week is not getting enough support. In fact this was the first time I was a little disappointed when researching who might be celebrating this week and how. I know. It's not pleasant to admit, but I take that as a challenge! I say this because not only should this week be about informing, promoting, teaching and exploring the many aspects of Massage Therapy to clients - It should be about celebrating each other as a Massage Therapy community. It's a wonderful reason for all those LMT's out there to step outside of their own box of therapy and become more aware of some of the Massage Therapy that is offered by different people, different cultures and different beliefs about the body. With a modality as old as massage you have a lot of ways to learn and discover! A list to get your started is one click away...
There are over 150 documented styles of Massage Therapy weaving us all together in the name of healing body work. So pick a new door to open from this condensed list below - and just as we encourage our clients - learn, grow, and stay open minded to the power of human touch!
Pick something new! Do some research! Find a fellow practitioner who you can learn from!
Celebrate National Massage Therapy Awareness Week by understanding how vast this community is and how diverse the ways to help others through massage can truly be!
