Learn & Connect: AMTA’s 2012 Massage Profession Research Report to Be Unveiled at Schools Summit


AMTA’s 2012 Massage Profession Research Report to Be Unveiled at Schools Summit

AMTA's annual in-depth research report gets to the heart of trends driving the massage therapy profession, consumer use of massage therapy, massage therapy education and the increasing role of technology—giving schools the information they need to make decisions about their business, their students and how they market their services.

By attending AMTA’s 2012 Schools Summit, not only will you receive a copy of AMTA’s Annual Massage Profession Research Report, you’ll hear a presentation on the important information it contains for schools and be able to participate in open dialogue on the report. 

Schools Summit attendees will be able to utilize this report to:

  • Prepare students to enter the profession—Statistics garnered from practicing therapists will help set the stage for a long and fruitful practice.
  • Develop better business courses—Concrete data in this report will help students learn how to confidently build and market a successful practice. 
  • Equip your school to grow wisely—Base your school’s marketing on the demographics of those who are now seeking to become massage therapists.

Your students will benefit directly from your knowledge of the current research, the research process and the importance of evidence-informed practice.

Online registration is open until February 14. The report will be availabe as a downloadable pdf to all members this March.
