Do your 2012 resolutions include taking better care of yourself – whether exercising more, eating less, quitting smoking, or simply pampering yourself more? Did the holiday season bring you a gift certificate to a local spa? Or did it stress you out so much that you’re rushing there on your own?
The Holdcom Voice would like to tell you more about the benefits of massage therapy by proudly featuring The American Massage Therapy Association (AMTA) as our January 2012 Client of the Month. Founded in 1943, AMTA is the largest non-profit massage therapy professional association in the U.S. – with approximately 57,000 massage therapists and massage therapy school/program members. AMTA has been a client of Holdcom’s since 2004.
“Our mission is to serve our members while advancing the art, science, and practice of massage therapy,” explains David French, Director of Marketing. “The association is directed by elected, volunteer leadership and fosters member involvement through 51 state chapters.”
AMTA works to establish massage therapy as integral to maintaining health and complementary to other therapeutic processes; to advance the profession through ethics and standards, continuing education, professional publications, legislative efforts and public education; and foster the professional development of its members. AMTA provides information about massage therapy to the public and works to improve the professional climate for massage therapists. The association also helps consumers and healthcare professionals locate qualified massage therapists nationwide, through AMTA’s “Find a Massage Therapist®” free national locator service available at www.findamassagetherapist.org.
As the largest, non-profit massage therapy professional association in the U.S., it’s needless to say that the phone rings often on a daily basis. “Our message-on-hold program helps us inform our members about current activities of the association and directs them to the appropriate staff for assistance with their membership benefits,” states French.
“Holdcom works well for us and enhances our ability to continue to provide our members with quality customer service,” concludes French.
Congratulations again to our January 2012 Client of the Month, The American Massage Therapy Association, as we recognize them for their work in continuing to enhance the benefits of massage therapy.
