Print out the Massage School Student Days in PDF format



Wow, what fun is being planned for Thursday & Friday, July 14-15 at Western Carolina University with the World Massage Festival.
Biofreeze, ABMP, AMTA, Hands On Trade, FSMTB, NCBTMB, and Massage Envy
will all contribute to help students on their way towards licensure.

Biofreeze will be furnishing lunch to the students again this year on Friday!
Lynda Solien-Wolfe will chair a panel with industry leaders and James Waslaski will be the keynote speaker.


The student activities are designed STRICTLY for those who are students AND will not be licensed when the Festival starts on July 13, 2011.
If you are already licensed by July 13, 2011, you are NOT eligible to attend as a student.
Faculty members at attending schools may also attend the Festival at Student Prices when they attend with their students.

We are looking for a sponsor for Thursday's lunch.
