The Massage Therapy Foundation (MTF) supports and advances the massage profession by funding research grants and community outreach efforts—and the MTF relies on the generosity of the massage field’s individuals and organizations to maintain its level of support.

MASSAGE Magazine and Massage Magazine Insurance Plus have collectively donated more than $20,000 in financial and media contributions to the MTF in 2013, according to a press release made public this week.

“We are delighted to offer our support and services to further the mission of the Massage Therapy Foundation,” said MASSAGE Magazine and Chiropractic Economics magazine, as well as operates Massage Magazine Insurance Plus. “Our readers and customers seek massage research to better educate their clients and community, as well as advance their own practice, and we absolutely support the foundation’s strides to promote the efficacy of massage.”
