The American Massage Therapy Association (AMTA) announced today it is working to educate the mainstream media and the general public on the health benefits of massage therapy.

The association is focusing its efforts on recent research on massage.

“AMTA is committed to promoting massage therapy practice that is evidence informed,” says AMTA President Cynthia Ribeiro. “And, we want consumers and others in health care to understand how massage can benefit their health. The best way to communicate this to them is to show them research that will have meaning for them.”
