State Convention

Eighty-seven massage therapists, massage students, and friends joined us for three days of community, learning, and fun.  They attended five classes, a student lunch and learn, the annual meeting, and two networking events.  We offered lunch on Saturday and snacks Saturday evening, and prizes. Students walked away with White Elephant donations, gently used items, from established massage professionals like you.

Please join us for a class and/or a meeting this year.  The next class is on June 20-21 in Macon where Dawn Lewis will present Spontaneous Muscle Release (SMRT): Arm and Hand. Check this website, e-blasts, and Facebook for registration times.
