ROARING RIVER, NC–Oct. 27, 2010 – With the theme “Come Join Us for the Lucky 7th Annual Festival,” the Tuscany Suites and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada, has been chosen to host the 2012 World Massage Festival festivities.

“In 2011, we are concentrating on research and education in the quiet and stillness of the Nantahala National Forest, which is part of our mission statement,” said Mike Hinkle, founder of the World Massage Festival. “In 2012, we will focus on the fun and education!”

Located on Flamingo Road, right off the strip, the hotel boasts more than 700 rooms, each 600-square feet, at $45 per night for single or double occupancy (Sunday through Thursday) during the festival. There are four in-house restaurants, the casino is in a separate building from the lodging and there are two pools, a fitness/weight room and free Wi-Fi access in public areas and meeting rooms. The Tuscany has even waived the resort fee for festival attendees.

More than 45 instructors will bring world-class NCBTMB-approved continuing education (CE) credits to therapists from around the world. Therapists can get up to 26 CE hours over the course of the festival in 2012.

More details will be announced as they become available. For more information, visit
