The Alliance for Massage Therapy Education is a non-profit organization established to serve as an independent voice, advocate and resource for the entire education sector – from entry-level massage training programs through post-graduate studies. The Alliance is the only organization that brings Schools, Teachers, Continuing Education Providers, and Allied Industry Partners together under one roof.
The Alliance provides a comprehensive range of services to this community, and represents their interests in all domains. This advocacy comes into play in dealing with regulatory issues, accreditation, standard-setting initiatives such as the Alliance’s National Teacher Education Standards Project, as well as ongoing efforts to get massage therapy better recognized by and integrated into the health care delivery system.
As the field of massage therapy moves forward in its evolution, it is clear that the education sector must have a champion of its own. In fact, nearly all professions have an organization of this type. And by strengthening and improving massage education, the Alliance will bring great benefit to massage schools, teachers and practitioners, along with everyone in the general public who receives massage therapy.
