Congratulations to you all! Be sure to be part of our FaceBook community; we’ll be sharing the details of our 2017 program early in the new year.
Biofreeze, Bon Vital' and Massage Envy established the Successful Hands Grant Program to help students prepare for the rewards of a career in massage therapy.
Growing market demand and client needs have changed the role of the massage therapist over the years. As massage becomes a greater part of mainstream healthcare, you play an important part in client overall wellness. Market needs or your own interest also may lead you to a specialty—clinical sports techniques or posture and pain management—which requires even more learning.
Successful Hands grants can be used to fund your education, buy books or purchase the product you need for training or launching your career. The choice is yours. We know that whatever you decide, the grant will support ‘successful’ hands.
Industry leaders, Biofreeze, Bon Vital' and Massage Envy share a philosophy of giving and a common goal to advance the massage profession. Over the years, these highly successful companies have contributed hundreds of thousands of dollars to research, scholarships and product donations to community and national charitable programs.
The companies established their unique Successful Hands partnership to meet the growing demand for massage therapy services. By supporting students and the educational institutions they attend, Biofreeze, Bon Vital and Massage Envy hope to enable more individuals to pursue massage therapy as a career.
Whether you are just starting school, half way through, or a recent graduate, tell us in 200 words or less, “What being a successful massage therapist means to me.” Inspire us and others with your hopes and aspirations and you may be a recipient of a Successful Hands grant.” Applications must be received by October 15, 2016. Winners will be notified no later than December 1, 2016.
