Outreach

Community Based Massage-a-Thon Events  

Build Your Practice Through Outreach!

How it works:
You choose a local event happening in your neighborhood, such as a firemans dance, golf benefit, local festival, etc.  Or choose to create your own Massage-a-Thon event to benefit your favorite charity!   You and your team perform chair massage for $1/minute, donating at least 50% to the event or organization of your choice on behalf of yourself or business and AMTA-WI.
 
AMTA-WI provides you with customizable flyers to promote your event, a press release to submit to local media to promote your event and business, banners, sign in/off sheets to obtain prospective client contact info, customizable thank you cards, name tags, even a donation certificate!

AMTA-WI is excited to partner with WAFS (Wisconsin Alliance for Fire Safety) to support burn survivors through massage! 

Members of the WI Chapter of the American Massage Therapy Association Outreach Committee provided complimentary massage services to burn survivors throughout our state.  Our partnership began in 2011 when AMTA-WI attended Summer Camp for Burn Injured youth.  We had the pleasure of serving the campers with short table massages one evening followed by Family Day, where chair massages raised over $200 to support 2012 camp activities!

Last year, our partnership grew.  AMTA-WI provided Outreach Volunteers with a six-hour training course in Active Isolated Stretching to allow members to serve WAFS to the best of our ability.  We once again attended “Burn Camp” in August, we are adding to our service by offering individualized service within partnering hospitals and by serving at the 2012 World Burn Congress in September!

Please consider becoming involved in our Outreach effort!
