Urgent: Prevent the Repeal of Massage Therapy Licensure in Oklahoma!

TAKE ACTION OPPOSE SB101

The Massage Therapy Act is the active law here in Oklahoma. Currently there is a bill (SB101) that is calling to repeal the entire act. This means that if it goes through all the channels without failing it could end our licensure. If you do not want this to happen we at the AMTA-OK Board encourage you to follow the link below and contact your legislators. We encourage you to tell your story as to why you want to keep licensure in Oklahoma.

We encourage you to share the link to your clients as well, have them tell their story as to why they would like Massage Therapist to keep their license.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to comment, or send email to nha.amta@gmail.com

Thank you,
Rachel Adams LMT, BCTMB
AMTA-OK Board Member,

And Communications Chair

EVENT DATE: Apr 15, 2019

ROCKY’S STORY

I have been a massage therapist in the OKC metro area since 2000, with the majority of my clients being runners and triathletes.  I knew in massage school that I wanted to specialize in sports massage (I started running in 1995 to lose weight and have completed about 10 half-marathons since 2007).

Since then, I have endeavored to add more tools to my toolbox to help my athlete-clients recover faster and achieve their goals, including kinesiotaping, cupping, and IASTM (instrument-assisted soft tissue manipulation).

I have learned that my clients usually have a team of sports med professionals to keep them healthy (PT, chiro, ortho doctor), including myself.)

MASSAGE THERAPY FOUNDATION

The Massage Therapy Foundation is one of a limited number of non-profit organizations that has been awarded entries to the Boston Marathon.  I'm excited to announce that I have been selected as one of four (4) runners to race for the Massage Therapy Foundation and the John Hancock Non-Profit Marathon Program at the Boston Marathon on April 15, 2019.  

This fundraiser will help generate money for research on how massage can help improve the quality of life for so many people.  YOUR donation will directly and indirectly help people who, without your support, may not otherwise receive massage therapy or realize its benefits.

THANK YOU!!
