Last weekend I was at the AMFTE conference. The Alliance for Massage Therapy Education offers tremendous resources and support to massage therapy educators. Please check out their wonderful links. Ruth Werner presented comprehensive research substantiating massage therapy as a clear pain relieving therapy with no side effects. This research was sponsored by the Massage Therapy Foundation funded by the AMTA.
Thank you to the Alliance and the Massage Therapy Foundation for all you do!

The Holistic Hummingbird,LLC is currently experiencing rapid growth and as a result we are reaching out to massage schools for hiring needs. I would love to connect and discuss any employment fairs you may be hosting at your school, or to discuss the following opportunity as well.
Our current needs:
PT Massage Therapist, state licensed by Sept 1st. (Students may apply) The job is open beginning July 1st and will be about 10-20 hrs.
2-3 FT Licensed Massage Therapists, we have a contract that will double our clientele come Jan 1st and need to start the recruitment process for that now. For this reason, we would love to hire students who will have graduated and be state licensed by Feb 1st 2018.
Our flyer/job posting may be posted in your school or shared with your students through whichever way you disseminate career opportunities.
We’re changing the name of the game for our therapists by providing hourly compensation, plus commissions for each massage session and the opportunity to earn bonuses for referred clients and clients who become their regulars (even if they are one of our current clients).
We are also on a five-year plan to start implementing health coverage and continuous education grants to our employees as well!
Please don’t hesitate to ask any questions or provide any feedback!
Yours in touch,
