Important News from AMTA - VA Chapter

In April, the Chapter Board of AMTA-VA approved a motion to support a legislative process that will amend the law in which we are "certified" by the Commonwealth. If the new law is passed, all current "certified" massage therapists will become "licensed" by the Commonwealth. See the full announcement at…See More

"Not a lot of activity so far, but we're a new school and just a handful of students so far. Hopefully as I get this promoted and the students take more ownership it'll pick up :)"

Hi Karen,

I saw your post about needing instructors at Virginia College in your massage therapy diploma program.   I'm wondering if you have visiting instructors into your program or do continuing education for massage therapists in Virginia?  

I was the Director of Massage Therapy Services at Duke Integrative Medicine, where I started the program from inception and I  was the Business and Marketing Instructor at the Body Therapy Institute in NC for 3 years.   The two primary classes that I teach are:   Integrating Mind Body Skills into Your Massage Practice The Art and Soul of a Practice:  A creative approach to success.  Both are currently 1 day, 7 CE classes

I'm attaching my fliers for my upcoming mind body class in Baltimore in June as a reference for you about my work and also the description for the creative business class.  I'm very passionate about creating a work/life that comes from a place of purpose and passion and in the classroom I love fostering that development in both new massage therapists and seasoned, reminding them that "anything is possible!".
Will you let me know if this might meet a need at VC?
