Massage School Makeover Winner Announced

We've waited months to find out just who will win the Massage School Makeover (MSM) valued at more than $67,000 in products, services and equipment, generously donated by the MSM professional product partners. And finally, the time has come to reveal who the winner is!

The 2010 Massage School Makeover winner was announced live November 16 on the World Massage Conference (WMC). After hundreds of school applications and essays were sifted through and narrowed down to the finalists, MSM judges from Massage Today's Women in Bodywork Business blog carefully evaluated the last 10 schools to select one very lucky school. Out of the following 10 finalists:

  • Georgia Massage School
  • Florida Career School of Massage and Bodywork
  • Ann Arbor Institute of Massage Therapy
  • Cumberland Institute of Massage Therapies
  • Mississippi School of Therapeutic Massage
  • Holistic Massage Training Institute
  • Institute of Bodywork Studies
  • Educating Hands School of Massage
  • Crystal Mountain School of Therapeutic Massage
  • Savannah School of Massage Therapy Training

...The winner is Educating Hands School of Massage in Miami!

Iris Burman, co-founder and director of Educating Hands, was overwhelmed when she received news of the award via a phone call. "Thank you, thank you! This is absolutely a blessing ... this is amazing," she said with cheers and applause from fellow staff and students in the background.

Burman, and Educating Hands staff, have been considering moving the school to a larger facility to accommodate their growing student population, but held off due to the obvious financial undertaking. The timing couldn't have been more appropriate.

"I hope you have a lot of room, cuz you're going to need it!" Patrick said to Burman on the phone call. 

Among the many donations provided by MSM professional product partners, the school will receive equipment to supply a 10-bay clinic, a full stock of educational materials including textbooks, instructional DVDs, full body models for an anatomy/physiology lab, and computers and projectors for a complete audio/visual lab... and so much more.

The school is scheduled to receive the donated products and equipment in January. MSM sponsors Massage Warehouse, World Massage Conference and Massage Today will be there to catch the event live.

With so many deserving schools to choose from, MSM partners did not want to turn away any empty-handed. Every eligible school entered in the contest will receive a Biofreeze retailing education starter kit along with a "Science Behind Biofreeze" DVD. The 20 final schools will also receive a 16 oz Biofreeze Pump, and the 10 finalists will receive a $100 gift certificate from Massage Warehouse.
