Hello Fellow Austin AMTA Members,

I am on the Health & Wellness and Run, Walk, & Roll Committees of the AVAFEST (Austin Veteran Arts Festival) www.avafest.org
This is our inaugural event running from Oct 12th - Nov 16th.
There are (2) volunteer opportunities for massage therapists.

1) Health & Wellness Conference: Nov 2, 2019 at the Main Library. I need about 6 LMTs to perform chair massage during the demonstrations from 1:00- 3:00 pm.

2) Run, Walk, & Roll 5K/1M, Nov 9, 2019, at the Texas School for the Deaf. Again, a few LMTs to perform sports massage after the race for our Veterans and other race participants.

Please check out the website to learn about all of the other great events going on in Austin to help combat Veteran PTSD and Veteran su***de.

Your volunteerism would be greatly appreciated for these events.

Please respond to this post or contact me at [email protected]

In Gratitude,
Elicia 👐
Happy NMTAW!!!! To bring awareness to the world of Barefoot Massage, we wrote this blog post that explains all the old and new ways people massage with their FEET!

Look Before You Book A Massage

Once again, in a forum for massage therapists, I read of yet another therapist who was propositioned by a male client who was on her table. The woman ended the session immediately and told him to leave. I would have taken it one step further, called the police, and reported him for solicitation.

This behavior is not okay, people. Stop propositioning healthcare providers for sex. Stop with the happy ending jokes...most places that offer of those types of services are fronts for human trafficking anyway.

From our Chapter President, Russell Rust:
Dear Members,

I am taking this moment to reach out to our members to give an update on the best way to handle this tragic situation as an AMTA member. First and foremost our prayers go out to all of our members, their families, and all those affected by Harvey. During this time all of us want to reach out to help in any way we can and for most of us providing massage is the first thing we think of to offer.

This is so true, the comfort, stress relief, human interaction that our massage can provide has so many benefits to offer in time of distress. You are an individual and you need do what is best for yourself and I want you do what guides your own heart.

Organizations in charge of disasters experienced difficulties during the relief efforts in the Katrina event in Louisiana. FEMA learned from that experience and instituted a set protocols designed to provide organized procedures for all aspects the disaster relief.

With those protocols in place the AMTA National office has worked diligently to train volunteers on how FEMA would like these type of situations to be handled. This includes a training course online through the FEMA website. I am certified with an ID number through FEMA letting them know who I am and I tested on all the procedures to follow in disaster relief situations.

Understand during this time resources are limited and additional people descending on the area could limit the help to those in need, which could be as simple as the available water supply. All of us would like to help and the best way to help is to donate to the agency of your choice which have designed plans on how to best utilize their resources during this initial time.

I know all of us are concerned and want to help, be assured AMTA National and I are in constant contact and when the time is right I will reach out to our members about when our massage skills will be most beneficial to the organizations, first responders, and Red Cross volunteers on the front lines.

AMTA Texas does has the resources with the support of National to have a Community Service Massage Team (CSMT) trained to assist in these times of need but it requires team member training and dedicated volunteers willing to take that steps. Sometime we do not step up to be prepared until a disaster happens.

The AMTA TX chapter would also like you to know that our national office has reached out to members in the areas affected by Hurricane Harvey. If you are in one of those areas affected by the hurricane and have not yet heard from our national office please contact them at [email protected] or call 1-877-905-2700 and speak to a member experience specialist.

We wish the best for you, and for a full and speedy recovery for our communities, and we look forward to supporting you as part of our AMTA community for many years to come.

Thank you all for being members of the Texas Chapter of the AMTA

AMTA joins the rest of the country in offering its concerns for the safety of all who are in the path of the storm that continues to ravage Texas and Louisiana. Our hearts go out to all of those impacted by this disaster. Your association will be in contact with our members in the affected areas. Because of poor communications in some areas, this may take several days.

AMTA encourages those who wish to contribute to humanitarian efforts in the storm-affected area to do so directly through agencies and groups established to accept charitable contributions and ensure that they reach those most in need.

We would love to have your submission for our June 2017 newsletter. Deadline: May15th. See below for requirements!

#amtatx

We appreciate your submissions to the AMTA Texas newsletter. This is a member-driven effort that wouldn't exist without you! In order to make your future submissions as easy as possible, please note the following changes in newsletter format and the submission process.

If you’d like to publish an article in the summer edition, please note that Summer newsletter submissions are due on May 15.

The newsletter format is going through a transition phase, so please be patient during this process. The changes will provide some benefits for contributors.

In order to reserve your membership dollars for other benefits, we decided to only distribute an online version of our newsletter. To ensure your future submissions get included in the newsletter, please follow these guidelines:

· Submit your entry as a Word document.

· Submit any artwork as jpegs (picture format)

· Word length is no longer a concern.

· On longer articles, please have a friend or coworker review before submission, in order to clear up most editing concerns. (My wife’s a writer, and having her edit my final draft helped me focus the message before submitting to my editor. Reduces rejects.)

(PDF's will be returned to convert back to Word and jpeg formats.)

You may submit a PDF along with your Word and pictures so we can follow your page layout, but keep in mind that the website editor is primitive, and color or shape formatting is limited. Save yourself time and effort by limiting font sizes and colors in the Word section of your submission. Illustrations work best it they’re rectangular in shape.

For further writing guidelines, read this article: http://www.amtatx.com/article-writing-basics.html

Submissions after the deadline may be held for the next newsletter. We will notify you at least one month before the deadline when submissions are due.

If you’ve been considering writing a general column, space limitations of a printed newsletter no longer limit your creativity. For example, if you wanted to write about fascial structure and how Myofascial release works on it, a column could run into 2,000 words or more. Same with an anatomy column discussing the psoas, its functions, and how to work on it without adverse affects. Sharing knowledge can be a good way to earn free marketing for your trainings.

Newsletter Deadlines

· Spring: Submission by 1/5; Published 2/5

· Summer: Submission by 5/15; Published 6/15

· Fall: Submission by 10/15; Published 11/15

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at 512-658-2318 or [email protected].
