Massage therapists know: Virtually everyone benefits from massage. Whether a client is young, adult, elderly, physically challenged or athletic, massage effects physical and emotional health.

The nation’s largest association for massage therapists, Associated Bodywork & Massage Professionals, sponsors EveryBody Deserves a Massage Week every year; in 2011 the week runs July 18 to 24.

ABMP members around the nation will use association-created marketing materials when providing massage to various client populations and making the public more aware of the benefits of massage therapy.
