As classmates, and colleagues, the founding members of the Massage and Bodywork Alliance immediately took notice of the power that sincere bodywork has to change both the physical and mental state, its capacity for transformation, and the value it holds as a tool useful for healthcare, athletic performance, corporate wellness, and the general well-being of the world we all live in.
The Alliance was formed in an effort to maximize that potential.
