AMTA – American massage therapy association

AMTA er den største nonprofit professionelle forening, der betjener massageterapeuter, massagestuderende og massageskoler i USA.

Foreningen ledes af frivillige ledere og fremmer løbende, direkte medlemsinvolvering gennem sine 51 kapitler. AMTA arbejder for at fremme professionen gennem etik og standarder, fremme af fair og konsekvent licensering af massageterapeuter i alle stater og offentlig uddannelse om fordelene ved massage.

AMTA bringer denne artikel af Michelle Vallet, August 1, 2019 – Promising Approaches to Pain Relief.

Artiklen er engelsk og fremhæver flere undersøgelser hvor massage er benyttet til smertelindring, frem for andre typiske amerikanske behandlingsmetoder mod smerter.
