Kennesaw, Georgia - Massage therapists are lending their hands to Cobb County in celebration of the award-winning national event, EveryBody Deserves a Massage Week, July 14-20 at Mind & Body Christian Health Group located at 1301 Shiloh Rd, Suite 810, Kennesaw, GA 30114. The event is sponsored by Associated Bodywork & Massage Professionals (ABMP), the nation’s largest massage membership association (www.abmp.com).
The massage therapists at Mind & Body Christian Health Group will be giving 60 minute massages for 40% off for first responders and teachers during the week-long celebration. Additionally, they are asking for the community to nominate a deserving local citizen for a free massage. Nominations should be sent to [email protected] along with why they are being nominated. These professionals join ABMP volunteers nationwide in an educational public service designed to promote the many benefits of massage therapy and give back to their communities.
The use of massage therapy has boomed in the last two decades. Massage has proven health benefits, such as effectiveness in treating persistent back pain and arthritis pain, as well as strengthening the immune system. It also reduces symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome. Consumer research shows first-time massage therapy clients report very positive feelings about their experience. Consumers can enjoy peace of mind knowing ABMP members meet state licensing and educational requirements, as well as adhering to the ABMP code of ethics.
ABMP has sponsored a charitable, promotional massage event since 1995. For extensive information on massage therapy and free downloadable photography, visit www.massagetherapy.com and click on “Media Corner.” Read the client-centered digital magazine Body Sense at www.bodysensemagazinedigital.com.
