NMTAW 2013 at Farragut Square
We know the benefits of massage -- let's educate the public & have fun doing it!

AMTA-DC Chapter sponsors events throughout the year to promote and educate massage therapists and the general public about the benefits of massage. 

AMTA National Convention - Sept. 17-20, 2014
Join us in Denver, Colorado for the national convention, where we engage with our AMTA community, connect with leaders of our profession and thrive in a word-class learning environment.

In 2013, NMTAW events around the country reached over 100 million people.  In DC, we staged a "flash massage" in Farragut Square -- check out this YouTube video of the event. This year we're planning bigger and better events. What ideas do you have for NMTAW 2014?
Volunteer Opportunities
We have a gift -- let's share it with the world!

Licensed massage therapists are needed for many exciting events and worthwhile agencies throughout the national capital region. To participate, you must provide a copy of your DC, MD or VA massage license.

Ride to Conquer Cancer - Sat/Sun, Sept. 13 and 14
During this bold cycling journey, riders will cycle over 150 miles through the National Capital Region to help fund cancer research and care at Johns Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center, Sibley Memorial and Suburban Hospitals. To volunteer contact Erin Smith, Crew and Volunteer Coordinator, [email protected].

Best Buddies Challenge - Saturday, Oct. 18
This event raises money for Best Buddies International, a global volunteer movement that helps people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. 

Marine Corps Marathon - Sunday, Oct. 26
Last year's Touch of Relief team massaged over 200 runners in 6 hours and helped Fisher House raise over $400,000 to benefit wounded warriors and their families. High energy, fast-paced, fun. Tables provided; just bring your hands.  To volunteer, contact Jaime Bernardo at [email protected] or (301) 370-8100.
