Alliance gains Massage Today as its First Major Sponsor

The Alliance for Massage Therapy Education, a non-profit organization for massage schools and educators, is pleased to announce that the noted publication Massage Today has become an Associate Member of the Alliance and is its first major annual sponsor. As part of this commitment, Massage Today will be the top sponsor for the Alliance’s First Annual Conference in Park City, Utah on June 3-5.

We are honored to support the Alliance and its mission, and believe this organization is well-positioned to make a positive impact in the massage therapy profession.”

Massage Today, the largest independent monthly publication in the profession, reaches 57,000 massage therapists with 12 issues per year. It is owned by MPA Media of Huntington Beach, California, which also publishes the professional journals Dynamic Chiropractic and Acupuncture Today.
