For the fifth year in a row, Massage Warehouse has joined with various corporate partners to present the Massage Warehouse Sanctuary, which will benefit the Massage Therapy Foundation (MTF). The following corporate partners have generously joined forces to raise $10,000 for the MTF Sanctuary events: Bon Vital, Core Products, CranioCradle, Custom Craftworks, Earthlite, EvZone Music, MASSAGE Magazine, Massage Today, Massage Warehouse, Performance Health, TH.Stone in conjunction with Sa-Wan, Soothing Touch and WR Medical/Therabath.

“Making the choice to support our industry in all the ways we can is our corporate responsibility,” says Angie Patrick of Massage Warehouse. “Our corporate partners feel the same, and share the love of massage. We bring Sanctuary to life in order to bring a community together and to educate them about the need for research.”

About the Massage Warehouse Sanctuary

The Sanctuary is a philanthropic event, hosted by Massage Warehouse, to raise awareness and understanding for the need to support massage therapy research. Massage Warehouse, along with their corporate partners and volunteers, operate a working spa on trade show floors to provide 10-minute hand or foot massages for a minimal cost. All proceeds from the massages are donated to charity.

Since its inception, Sanctuary has raised nearly $80,000 for the Massage Therapy Foundation, various research projects and the Touch Research Institute. In 2011, you can find Sanctuary events benefiting the MTF at the American Massage Conference (May 20 to 22, 2011) and the American Massage Therapy Association National Convention (October 19 to 22, 2011).
