The Global Wellness Institute’s “Massage Makes Me Happy” initiative aims to spread awareness about the positive impacts of touch therapies to consumers and medical, spa, and wellness professionals.
Even though the tremendous growth of massage over the past decade, there is still a lack of understanding of the facilitation mechanisms, therapeutic benefits, and deeper impacts that massage and bodywork has on people of all ages. Receiving massage creates happiness, and this initiative will focus on creating educational outreach that promotes this message.
The idea for the initiative began with Lynda Solien-Wolfe and CG Funk, who developed the concept during the 2015 Global Wellness Summit. One of the first completed projects for the Massage Makes Me Happy Initiative was to declare an official Global Massage Makes Me Happy Day. The date of March 20, 2018 was selected, which coincides with The International Day of Happiness, also known as Happiness Day. Additional information on this special day and planned celebrations will be shared later this year after the 2017 Global Wellness Summit.
