Every massage client knows that massage relieves pain. From low-back ache and repetitive stress injuries to pregnancy-related muscle tenderness and post-sports tightness, healthy touch helps.

September is National Pain Awareness Month. Massage therapists can take this opportunity to speak about and demonstrate massage therapy, with marketing materials that piggyback on the month.

The month is sponsored by the American Pain Foundation Action Network

“September Pain Awareness Month provides an opportunity for organizations and individuals to come together to raise awareness in communities across the country to bring positive change to the management of pain,” noted the foundation’s website
