Massage Therapy Awareness Day (MTAD) is approaching! This is the day where we go to the Capitol and educate our legislators on what professional massage therapy is. We help to educate about any legislation that would impact us as a profession while offering 10-minute massage sessions.

We are looking for at least 10 therapists per shift. The space allows for massage chairs and Thai mats, but not tables.

When: This event is Tuesday, April 23, 2024 from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. We will have three shifts: 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., 10:30 am to 2:30 pm, and 12:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. These are four-hour shifts. If you need to arrive late or leave early from a selected shift, please note that. If you are able to work a six-hour or full-day shift, please let us know and we will ensure a 45-minute break for lunch.

Who: Any CT Licensed, active AMTA graduate or professional member (student members may work with a current instructor present or assist at the check-in table).

PLEASE NOTE: There is limited parking at the Capitol/LOB, so try to carpool if that is an option for you.

Wear an AMTA volunteer shirt if you have one from prior years. If you have a Sports Team or massage business polo, scrub top, or professional top, that is also appropriate.
