The Massage Therapy Foundation recently announced recipients of its annual Student Case Report contest.
The foundation works to advance the knowledge and practice of massage by supporting scientific research, education and community service. Its student case report contest promotes research literacy in massage therapy schools by integrating research into schools’ existing programs. With the support and cooperation of schools, students learn to write a research case report and simultaneously begin to incorporate research into their practice habits.
