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.
I have a office on Taylor Street (off Washington) and I'll be moving to Main Street across from the gate to the University in August. "Workplace" or "employee" massage has been a great way to get things rolling with my practice. I practice at Markem one day a week and just started a employee program at The Cheshire Medical Center.
I received a certificate in Massage Therapy at the NH Community Technical College win Claremont, NH. I think it's a great school and feel that I got a first rate education there.
