speakers for the Massage Mastery Summit

Joshua Reyes, LMT, MTI, and Emily Rene, LMT are excited to launch the Massage Mastery Summit dedicated to moving past COVID-19, scheduled everyday (excluding Sunday, June 28) from June 22 to June 30. Join the movement to advance the massage industry forward!

This free virtual summit will educate massage therapists on what COVID-19 is as it pertains to us as therapists, how to adapt to the current changes in the massage therapy industry, how to safely re-open if you choose to, proper and ethical communication, developing new skills to advance their career and self-confidence, and the opportunity to build community and network with other therapists.

Josh and Emily will be hosting one guest speaker per day via Zoom and live Facebook broadcast, approximately 30 minutes per speaker. Guest speakers include Erik Dalton, creator of Myoskeletal Alignment Techniques; Ruth Werner, author of A Massage Therapist’s Guide To Pathology; Whitney Lowe, Author of Orthopedic Assessment In Massage Therapy; Anne Williams, the co-author of Preventing Disease Transmission in a Massage Practice; Doug Nelson, the president of the Massage Therapy Association; Cal Cates and Kerry Jordan with Healwell; and Julie Tudor with Connect Wellness. Dates, times, and additional information on the speakers can be found here.

Massage therapists are encouraged to join the Massage Mastery Summit Facebook Group (Moving Past COVID-19) to receive updates about the event.

The summit will be hosted by Joshua Reyes who, as a massage therapist, founded Revival Float Spa, voted Best Day Spa in Odessa, Texas, 2019. During the COVID crisis, he found that many therapists had many concerns about the virus, their practice and their clients. This led to the creation of this summit that aims to equip therapists with the proper knowledge to make an informed decision about continuing to practice massage. Josh also founded the Be You, Only Better! (BYOB) Audio podcast, created during the COVID crisis to provide positivity and inspiration through people sharing stories of overcoming their past struggles, now a top 200 podcast!

The summit will also be hosted by Emily Rene, LMT, and Holistic Health Expert and Business Coach. Emily founded Essential Massage Therapy in November 2017 serving the Monticello, Illinois, community, which she closed and still has concerns with re-opening. Emily adapted her practice in response to quarantine to continue to serve and empower women via coaching. Emily is passionate about investing in personal development and networking with like-minded entrepreneurs.
