"Harrison College is committed to giving back to the community whenever possible, and National Massage Therapy Awareness Week offers us a relaxing way to show our appreciation," said McGee. "I want to thank the Indiana chapter of the American Massage Therapy Association for helping to coordinate this event, and I encourage all interested participants to take part in these complimentary massages and assessments."
National Massage Therapy Awareness Week is designed to raise public understanding about the benefits of massage, attract media attention to nationwide activities being carried out by American Massage Therapy Association (AMTA) chapters and members, and provide all AMTA members an opportunity to demonstrate their profession and skill.
