I'm happy to be a member of this group. I went to the web site and found the following information about the Massage Therapy Foundation:
"We believe in massage therapy and bodywork. We are therapists, educators, members of professional organizations, vendors who sell supplies, and massage and bodywork clients. We support the Massage Therapy Foundation with our hearts and dollars, donating to promote the knowledge and understanding of massage. The Massage Therapy Foundation, a 501(c)(3) public charity, advances the profession through community service projects, research, and education." Warmly, Ariana Vincent, Ariana Institute,
