Massage Therapy School Convention Kicks Off in February

A massage therapy school convention will be held in Chicago next month to help institutions remain competitive in the ever-growing industry of education.

The convention is hosted by the American Massage Therapy Association and titled the 2012 Massage Therapy Schools Summit.

This is an annual event held by the AMTA and will take place in the middle of February, 2012. Each year, the Massage Therapy School Summit focuses on an aspect of education and is open to institutions of education and their instructors, as well as the owners and staff at massage therapy schools. The general format of the summit is consistent between annual meetings, including publication of the current trends and statistics about massage therapy schools and industry as well as open discussions on related topics of interest.

The theme this year is “Your Bridge to Success”, a convention that is intended to give massage therapy schools how-to lessons in overcoming challenges that are unique to this discipline of education. The AMTA is expected to focus on changes to finances for massage therapy schools, as well as techniques for teachers on many new and traditional modes of massage therapy.

According to Massage Magazine, there are many reasons for the staff of massage therapy schools to attend the annual meetings with the AMTA. The conversations on industry specific data are an important element in curriculum design and maintaining a competitive edge among other massage therapy schools. New techniques and insider knowledge from industry experts provides unique insight into the methods through which some massage therapy schools are more successful than others.

The AMTA boasts more than fifty-thousand members through more than 50 chapters of the AMTA. Among their member base are some 300 massage therapy schools that share the ideals of the organization including ethics, standards, and job placement rates for their students.
