The Alliance for Massage Therapy Education invites members of the massage-therapy profession to take its online survey on educational standards.
The alliance is an independent, non-profit organization established to serve as the voice, advocate and resource for the massage education sector.
Text released by the alliance to explain the survey notes:
“The Alliance’s Professional Standards Committee is working to carry out one of the organization’s key goals: to develop standards that guide and inform the effective teaching of massage therapy. This is being examined in the spectrum from entry-level training programs through post-graduate studies.
“The purpose of this brief survey is to gather information on the attitudes or perceptions within our community regarding: 1) formation of standards for teacher education and massage school curricula; and 2) the Massage Therapy Body of Knowledge. Your responses will help identify the concerns you would like the Alliance to address, and will inform the process of developing standards.”
