Happy Spring from the Community Service Massage Team!

As I’m writing this, I’m looking out on a beautiful bright white snow covered landscape. As a summer lover, I hope as you’re reading this, we are starting to see green and signs of nature reemerging. Whichever season you are happy to see, each season provides us an opportunity to volunteer and help out in our communities!

I’d like to give a big shout-out to those of you who brought supplies and financial donations for New Reach at our winter chapter meeting. Those donations will be put to good use by the women and children who are supported through this wonderful organization. If you know of any non-discriminatory organizations that you think fit well with AMTA as the donation center in the future, please let me know.

Spring-ing ahead to April 7 and 8 (see what I did there…) we have the CT Mission of Mercy Dental event. CTMOM’s mission statement is to facilitate the delivery of charitable dental care to the underserved. To learn more, you can visit their site directly at Our job as massage therapists is to support the hygienists, dentists and other volunteers who generously donate their time to the cause. If you are planning on participating in this event, please follow the sign-up instructions in the Eventbrite link sent via e-blast. See you there!

Also, be on the lookout for more information regarding Legislative Awareness Day in May!
