MASSAGE Magazine announced the recipient of its first annual Massage Champion of the Year award

JACKSONVILLE, FL, Nov. 1, 2022 – MASSAGE Magazine announced the recipient of its first annual Massage Champion of the Year award. The magazine presented this award to The Alliance for Massage Therapy Education (AFMTE) for its continued advocacy and support of the massage community.

As the massage industry evolves, it is clear that the education sector requires a champion of its own. AFMTE advocates in the interests of the massage therapy education sector and has joined the other stakeholder groups in the massage therapy field. AFMTE seeks to positively impact schools, teachers, practitioners and resource partners, as well as everyone who receives massage therapy or bodywork.

“MASSAGE Magazine’s staff is honored to have the opportunity to recognize the AFMTE for the important work it does to support the very foundation of the massage field—schools, educators, students and continuing education providers,” said MASSAGE Magazine Editor in Chief Karen Menehan. “We are also pleased to offer another unique program to celebrate the massage field, and look forward to making this Massage Champion of the Year award to other deserving organizations and individuals in the future.”

AFMTE will be featured in MASSAGE Magazine’s November print issue and online at, also in November. The MASSAGE Magazine Champion of the Year award includes:

• If a nonprofit, one-month donation campaign promoted by MASSAGE Magazine
