Presidents Message
January 2022

Wow, another year has passed already, another one with continuing COVID-19 challenges. Well, it did get better. We were able to meet face-to-face in October for a volunteer training session and finally met new volunteers willing to give their time and energy to the chapter. We are looking forward to our face-to-face Georgia State Convention February 18-20.

Although I have decided not to run for any positions I will be on committees and on the side lines. As you know AMTA has been a major part of my life both personally and professionally for over 30 years. With all the changes in our world AMTA has excelled at informing our members on CDC updates and keeping us informed with how to take care of ourselves during these trying times.

I thank you for allowing me to serve as your chapter president. I look forward to serving in other ways. I’ll always be your friend and colleague. Take time today to look at ways in which you can give back to our profession through AMTA-Georgia Chapter.

Good Health
Vivian

Sun
Evidence Informed Clinical Cupping @ Atlanta School of Massage
Sep 18 @ 8:00 am – Sep 19 @ 5:00 pm

This course will cover techniques useful for treating patients who have a variety of musculoskeletal disorders. We explore the contribution that Cupping Therapy can have on a patient’s pain symptoms and movement restrictions, and how these treatments might serve to alleviate those symptoms. As an evidence-informed approach, research and western physiology will be investigated to give a therapist a current understanding of how it works and how it can be communicated with clients.

Location: Atlanta School of Massage

Dates: September 18th and 19th (Sunday and Monday)

Time: 8 am to 5 pm.

Required: You will need a massage table, sheets (suggest two sets), and a product for massage.
