The president of the American Massage Therapy Association (AMTA) presented a symbolic check for $494,229 to the Massage Therapy Foundation at the AMTA’s convention in Phoenix, Arizona, in late September.

At the opening business session of the convention, AMTA President M.K. Brennan presented Massage Therapy Foundation President Diana Thompson with a check for $494,229, representing AMTA’s financial support to the Massage Therapy Foundation for 2009 to help the foundation carry out its mission and support AMTA’s goal for evidence-informed massage practice.
“Every year AMTA has supported the Foundation through in-kind and monetary support for its day-to-day operations as our association foundation,” said Brennan. “We are happy to promote your work and encourage others to contribute.”
