The World Massage Festival announces “The Massage Therapy Project”, born on the 4th of July, 2010. It will be a project to preserve Massage History.
This is an effort to compile a massage reference library and repository for massage-related literature, artifacts and history. Therapists, authors and instructors may submit their materials and become a part of Massage History.
Many items from private collections will be housed in the repository for present day therapists and future generations to view and learn from, as well as items from independent sources, the World Massage Festival and Massage Therapy Hall of Fame.
The WMF is reviewing several different locations across the country, as a possible home for the Project. Do you have a suggestion for the location of the repository? Please contact Mike Hinkle with the World Massage Festival with your input at http://www.worldmassagefestival.com, firstname.lastname@example.org or 336-957-8997.
Yes, Judi definitely needs to get over here in this conversation box... She's got all the stuff... lol. Isn't it fabulous what our profession is finally blooming. Mike ...... You came in at the right moment with your dreams and now we are real, with a Hall of Fame and everything... There are a lot of folks out here that are thankful for your vision and don't have any idea how hard you and Cindy have fought just to be able to give....God Bless the World Massage Festival
Well, of course I have to vote for my own city, Las Vegas, Nevada.
What could be a better location for something so profound than Sin City?
In the heart of 'what happens in 'vegas stays in 'vegas' would be the Massage Therapy Project!
Tackle the tough locations first! I mean, aren't we all about educating the masses??? That's all I seem to read about now-a-days....the band of brothers and sisters of fellow MT's to educate and save the world! Let us tackle their ignorance and lay our healing hands upon them until they see the light!
(Shakes head to clear the cobwebs out) Oh, sorry, I've been dealing with nut-job extremists today....
Thanks to everyone that has helped with this project. Tell a friend, send a book or get more folks involved because Massage finally has a place it can call "HOME!"
