MassageNet has four categories of membership status: massage therapists, massage therapy students, massage therapy educators or administrators, and researchers. Some people may fit into more than one. The purpose of this network is to collect information on massage practices, and to share that information with other health care providers and clients. Benefits to you through participation include:
- Have a channel of communication with other members through the MassageNet Facebook page to ask questions, share information, and discuss current research relevant to the massage therapy profession.
- Have access to information on projects initiated and completed by MassageNet and other information newsworthy for the massage profession that may improve the way therapeutic massage care is understood.
- Learn about the importance of research in practice, how to access the literature, how to review and interpret the literature, and how to write case studies.
- Be included in a core group of progressive massage professionals who collaborate to complete research studies. As a member of MassageNet, you are not required to participate in all research studies. Rather, you are free to choose studies you find interesting and relevant.
The MassageNet staff is available to answer your questions and to help you get started on your participation. If you have further questions about which category of membership you best fit into, please contact us today.
