The Massage Therapy Foundation advances the practice and knowledge of massage therapy through its support of scientific research, education and community service.

In 2010 the foundation launched a campaign called RISE to the Occasion, with RISE being an acronym for Research, Inspiration, Service, Education.

Through this campaign, the foundation has raised $262,600 of its $400,000 goal. “If 20,000 fans of massage therapy each donated $20 to the Massage Therapy Foundation, we would raise $400,000 to continue our work,” the foundation’s website notes.
