The Profession Needs Your Voice!

We’re excited to invite you to share your wisdom to help boost our profession. ABMP is part of a profession-wide Leadership Group working to better support the massage profession by understanding who today’s massage therapist is, how you feel about your calling, and your perspective on your massage therapy education.

We need a bit of your time to provide your honest, thoughtful feedback to two online surveys courtesy of the Federation of State Massage Therapy Boards (FSMTB).

The first section—the FSMTB Job Task Analysis Survey—pinpoints exactly who a massage therapist is and what a massage therapist does in practice, every day. The second section—an Education Survey—explores what you learned in your entry-level massage training and how relevant those knowledge and skills are in your actual practice. These results will inform the Entry Level Analysis Project (a workgroup of the Leadership Group).

Your responses are anonymous, so please answer each question based on your massage education, practice, and experiences in the profession as honestly as possible. Your feedback will be combined with other responses and is crucial to understanding which knowledge and skills should be taught in entry-level education programs.

It may take you up to 45 minutes to complete both surveys, but they are investments in your career and in the growth and success of our dynamic profession. Thank you for your time and your willingness to help move your profession forward.
