Legislative Awareness Day

Legislative Awareness Day is approaching! This is the day where we go to the Capitol and educate our legislators on what professional massage therapy looks like, and thank them for their support.

We are hoping to have at least 10 therapists per shift. The space will allow for massage chairs and Thai mats, but not tables.

This event is Wednesday, May 8th from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Shifts are available from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., and 12:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. Contact coordinator Nikki Arel at GOVRELAMTACT@gmail.com for more information.

Who: Any CT Licensed active AMTA graduate or professional member (student members may work the check-in table). Wear your white, red or blue volunteer shirts, and if you need one, please let us know your size.
What: Chair or Thai massage (bring your own equipment). We will supply face cradle covers and Lysol wipes.
Where: Capitol Building North Lobby, 210 Capitol Avenue, Hartford CT
When: May 8th, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. (2 shifts available)
Why: We bring awareness about the Massage Therapy profession to our representatives in Hartford. This event educate our representatives about our role in the health care community.
How: Sign up on Eventbrite here. There is limited parking at the capitol building, so try to carpool if that is an option for you. We will also have access to the cafeteria for lunch if you are planning to work both shifts!
