Teachers in the classroom are getting older … there are many more schools and programs being taught by underdeveloped educators. With over one thousand of massage schools in the country and over 2000 CE Providers, we estimate there are close to 10,000 teachers of massage and bodywork therapies at all levels.  New instructors need training, skills, and support.

In our practices we can often be working as an individual with our client, yet it is our collective responsibility to promote massage therapy and bodywork whether we are working, networking or just out and about on errands, going to the health club, or getting together with your friends and family for a social event.

February 24, 2014 In December 2013, the Coalition of Massage Therapy Organizations met to discuss and, thereafter, ratify the ELAP project. At this time, Massage Therapy Foundation President, Ruth Werner, and new NCBTMB Board Chair, Dr. Leena Guptha, had the opportunity to review and discuss research requirements for Board Certification renewal. This important dialog led to NCBTMB approving recommendations from the Massage Therapy Foundation, including credits gained from attendance at Integrative, Complementary and/or Healthcare Research conferences that further advance the goal of Research Literacy among our profession.
