I just wrote up a news story for our website, and wanted to give it an extra push out to the massage-o-sphere. Here goes.

The National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine (NCCAM) at the National Institutes of Health is inviting input from the public to assist the creation of its long-range plan. This input “will provide guideposts for future scientific direction, a useful framework for priority setting, and continue the internal efforts to advance the organization,” a statement on NCCAM’s website reads.

I’d love to see massage therapists, en masse, provide NCCAM with some solid information and ideas about massage therapy and the clientele that can benefit from it. The site below covers NCCAM’s plan and includes a link where you can comment.
