Evanston, IL – The American Massage Therapy Association (AMTA), the nation’s top massage therapy non-profit association dedicated to advancing the art, science and practice of massage therapy, announces the re-launch of its popular online Massage Information Center (MIC).  AMTA’s improved MIC features a new layout and design, streamlined navigation and updated content and resources.

The MIC is an online repository for research, articles and professional development resources related to massage therapy.  It includes information on modalities, business/practice development tools and the latest research.  Massage therapists and consumers alike turn to the MIC for information related to the profession.

“As the profession continues to evolve and grow, this is the perfect time to re-launch the MIC with updated technology and content that will support our members’ professional development as well as inform consumers of the benefits of massage,” says AMTA president Judy Stahl.  “AMTA’s Massage Information Center is an incredible online resource, and we’re pleased that practitioners, students, educators and consumers continue to turn to AMTA as the leader in massage therapy education and research.  The MIC is just one tool supporting our work.”

The MIC re-launch, along with AMTA’s recent social media program, reflects the association’s aggressive outreach through electronic communications.  AMTA is using the latest forms of technology to bring information about massage therapy to consumers and professional development knowledge to its professional, student and school members.
