American Massage Conference Registration Now Open
By Editorial Staff
The American Massage Conference is now accepting registration forms for the 2012 conference to be held at the Town and Country Resort in San Diego, Calif. The conference will be held April 20th through 22nd and costs just $40 for practicing massage therapists and only $20 for students.
The registration fee includes access to the conference, tradeshow, prizes and 30 free, one-hour continuing education courses. One day, 2-day or 3-hour workshops are available for an extra charge. Once registration is complete, participants will be able to reserve a seat for these workshops.
In addition to the American Massage Conference, there will be two concurrent conferences also taking place at the Town and Country Resort: The American Chiropractic Conference and the American Acupuncture Conference. Last year marked the inaugural American Massage Conference in Atlanta, where more than 1,600 visitors explored the latest products and services available on the tradeshow floor, and took part in workshops and continuing education courses.
The conference will feature more than 105 exhibitor booths, continuing education in the forms of 1-hour, 3-hour or 1 or 2-day workshops. Participants can also play in a charity golf tournament benefiting the Make-A-Wish Foundation. As in Atlanta, there will also be a Facebook party and a Saturday evening Gala. All education is acceptable for CEU credits. Friday morning will include a free student seminar, with a "Disciplines Unite" seminar open to all massage, chiropractic and acupuncture practitioners. Friday is a free day for students who pre-register and includes access to the tradeshow and a job fair.
The free, one-hour workshop schedule is:
Friday, April 20, 2012
Saturday, April 21, 2012
Sunday, April, 22, 2012
There are also several three-hour workshops that cost an additional $45. They also include a variety of topics from leaders in the profession, including sessions led by Massage Today columnists and contributors David Kent, James Waslaski, Felicia Brown, Whitney Lowe, Ann Catlin, Stephanie Beck and Tina Allen.
Once participants register for the conference, they will have the option to "add on" these additional three-hour workshops for $45:
Friday, April 20, 2012
Saturday, April 21, 2012
Sunday, April 22, 2012
For an additional $150, participants can enjoy a full day workshop. Friday's session is listed as a "Mystery Guest," but Saturday's workshop will be conducted by James Waslaski and will cover "Orthopedic Massage for Complicated Shoulder Conditions and Pelvic Stabilization." Sunday's workshop, also by James Waslaski, will cover "Orthopedic Massage for Complicated Cervical Conditions and Elite Sports Therapy Class."
Hotel conference rates are $125 per night. For additional information about the Town and Country Resort or to make a reservation, call (800) 772-8527 or visit www.towncountry.com. For additional information about the conference, visit www.americanmassageconference.com.
