Hello my massage therapy peeps,
There is an exciting massage therapy volunteer opportunity the week of October 22nd-25th in Anaheim, CA. It is the Phoenix Society's annual World Burn Congress. Over 900 burn survivors from all over the world will be in Anaheim for this meeting and the AMTA is comprising a team of volunteers to provide both chair and table massage sessions for this unique event.
This being said, you DO NOT have to be a member of AMTA to participate. he only pre-requisites is to have a current CMTC license, insurance AND to have taken Handle with Care's (HWC) 8hr Burn Scar Massage Therapy CEU course. This unique course is not only taught by two highly recognized massage therapist, but they are also burn survivors as well.
Jen Hartley and Chris Hallwas have been twice featured in Massage & Bodywork Magazine chronicling their work with burn survivors in the United States as well as abroad in Nicaragua and South Africa.
HWC has two dates coming up in California. March 3rd at NHI in Studio City, CA and May 4th at NHI in Sacramento, CA. Both of these classes are 8hrs and there is still room to sign up for either date. Also, there is a special rate for Cali therapists taking this class in order to volunteer at World Burn Congress.
There is nothing like the gratitude you get from working on a burn survivor.
