In Our Thoughts

ABMP would like to let its members know that the Massage Therapy Foundation Team that ran in yesterday¹s Boston Marathon is all accounted for and safe.  President Les Sweeney, who ran the race, and several other ABMP staff members who were in attendance to cheer him on, were not affected by the tragedy. Our thoughts are with those who were injured and the families of the deceased.

In Memoriam: Bob King

Bob King, cofounder of the Chicago School of Massage, passed away July 5. King’s career as an educator spanned several decades, during which time he positively influenced countless students and helped build the Austin massage profession. In 2004 he was recognized with a Distinguished Service Award by the Massage Therapy Foundation, and in 2009 he and his wife Kathie received the Massage Therapy Foundation/Performance Health Humanitarian Award. His family requests that, in lieu of flowers, those wishing to make a donation do so in his name to the Massage Therapy Foundation.
