Robert King

I was very shocked to find that Robert King has passed away. I met him at the AMTA National in Texas in 1989, when he was Prez.  A wonderful man who was very kind and a great motivator!  I ran into him at other AMTA events in California and took a weekend seminar from him. He always remember that I was the 7000th person to join the AMTA. The massage world has lost another icon and he will be missed.Godspeed Robert.Jody HutchinsonSee More

Hi Jody!

Would you please participate in the massage survey? Thanks!

http://www.surveymonkey.com/s.aspx?sm=OhBtGlEETUWwi9h5olkCGQ_3d_3d

Please help me compile this information. I'd like more than a 1,000 if possible. Sure it is!
Your participation is MOST appreciated.
Remember you do not have to answer all the questions and Page 2 is "optional". Page two is for those employed only, NOT Self Employed!The survey company automatically includes Page 2 and I was unable to edit or delete. SO it IS OPTIONAL!
Pass it on to your colleagues too.

The intention is to publish this research to assist
Future LMT's, educators, employers and anyone else interested in the statistics of the massage industry!
I want to give you a voice to share your thoughts and experiences.

The Survey will end November 29, 2009
