I hope you are enjoying this summer and the beautiful weather!
This year is rolling by fast. Since our last newsletter, the AMTA NJ Chapter-Board held our New Jersey Sate Convention on April 22, 2018 in Somerset, New Jersey.
Our presenter for the convention's education portion was none other then James Waslaski who is an absolutely phenomenal instructor and provided us with detailed information and instruction on how best to address injuries relating to both the lower and upper extremities. If you were unable to attend the April convention, don't worry! There will be more opportunities to catch James in action in the near future!
AMTA National will be celebrating 75 years of service. This year's National AMTA Convention will prove to be bigger and better than 2017. The line-up of prestigious presenters and exciting courses is quite impressive! Be sure to join our AMTA-NJ Chapter Board and your fellow AMTA-NJ Chapter members this year in Washington, DC for this cannot-be-missed event! AMTA NJ Chapter pins will be available for New Jersey therapists to hand out to other AMTA Chapter members over the course of the convention.

The AMTA-NJ Chapter Community Service Massage Team participated in The Brain Tumor Walk held in Asbury Park, on May 12, 2018. Weather did not deter participants from eagerly lining up to receive their massages. I would like to give a special shot out to Jeff Swann, who is truly a warrior, always willing to lend a hand wherever the need exists. Jeff truly is a warrior. The AMTA NJ Chapter Community Service Massage Team also participated in the Monmouth County Mental Health Counselors event in Colt Neck, New Jersey on June 15, 2018. Participants in the event included counselors who assist people in our communities with facing difficult situations on a daily basis. I'd like to extend one last shot out to Marty Fitzgerald and Adrienne Asta for their participation.
