Olga Chwascinska - Katmandu, Nepal

"A weekend of massage classes in magical Asheville?! This will be way better than Christmas!"
Rosalyn Goodman - Arkansas
Max International, Independent Consultant

"I attended the 2010 WMF and it was awesome. I learned so much from the classes I took, that I have applied to my massage practice. I met wonderful people and developed good friendships. I wanted to register for the 2011 WMF before the special price ended, but circumstances being what they are, I had been unable, as yet, to make this work financially. When I saw the competition on the website, I realized this was a great opportunity, and such a kind, generous offer from you guys. I thought: "What have I got to lose?" So I put my name down, and forgot about it. I was so excited when I opened my email and saw that I had won the Christmas in July drawing. It was the best Christmas gift and a dream come true. Thanks Santa Mike and Cindy!"

Ron Tuck - Minnesota
Ron Tuck Therapeutic Massage

"Thank you! I'm really excited about winning this registration. I think educational opportunities like this are really important. The variety of courses offered is amazing! The chance to sample different modalities that are interesting but are not in my main line of specialization is not only fun but will increase my skill set and make me a better therapist overall. It will also allow me to meet some wonderful people that I would never have had the chance to work with otherwise."
David Otto - Nevada

"I have to say: winning a Registration to the World Massage Festival is a great honor! I am so excited to be able to go again this year - thanks Micheal Hinkle & Cindy Michaels for giving away a free Registration to each state, territory, and province on Christmas Eve 2010! Looking forward to seeing you and all the great stuff you have planned at the Festival this year "

"I'm so grateful I won - I am just starting to build my massage practice, so this is a huge relief that I am able to learn more modalities and meet all my favorite people in the massage and bodywork world! It was a complete surprise. I found out Christmas Eve and was in the midst of hosting our family party. I went to the computer to check something and then I saw the email that I was A CHRISTMAS IN JULY WINNER!!! I immediately ran into the living room where all of my relatives were and started jumping up and down shrieking, "I WON, I WON, I WON!" It was the best Christmas gift ever! Thank you WMF.""

K.J. Burley - West Virginia

"I am so very excited to be going to the WMF again - and for FREE this time! Ever since returning from Berea, I have been telling other massage therapists about the Festival and encouraging them to come, too. I'm looking forward to meeting new friends, learning new skills from some of the best teachers in the business, and generally having a great time. It's always fun to add new tools to the toolbox and the WMF is one of the most fun and economical ways I've found to do just that.

Thank you, Mike & Cindy, for all your hard work on the WMF and especially for picking me as one of your winners. WOO-HOO!! Looking forward to Cullowhee in July! "
