Summer Chapter Meeting
Important Information from your Delegates to National Convention and a guest speaker on self-care will be provided during the chapter meeting.
Nikki Arel will be our Guest Speaker – Yoga for Massage Therapists. She will present self-care information on how to re-energize during a long day using Yoga. Nikki is a Yoga instructor and an LMT.
We Need Your Input! The Delegates will be discussing several Talking Points during the Assembly of Delegates this year. We need your input on these talking points so that our Delegates can share an accurate picture of our industry in CT. This is your opportunity to impact National Policy. The Delegates will also be discussing the two proposed position statements (view here: 1 & 2). This will be your chance to share your opinions with the Delegates, your elected representatives.
We listened to your comments on the snacks provided during the meeting. Instead of cookies, we will be providing fresh fruit and beverages. Please remember to bring your own dinner.

Erica Grossman, LMT, CAP, ACSCT – “Your Sacred Belly: Abdominal Education for Massage Therapists”
Participants will explore the anatomy and physiology of the pelvic and abdominal cavity; how the various organs have integrated relationships with each other, as well as their effect on far reaching aspects of the body, such as immunity, mood and fertility. We will also be discussing how the structural aspects of the pelvis, hips and legs affect the internal organs and vice versa. Participants will do a brief abdominal self-massage (clothed and in a chair) to reinforce the importance of self-care to this vital core area.
