Join the American Massage Therapy Association for the 2015 Annual Education Conference at the Double Tree by Hilton Hotel in San Jose


Online Registration is now closed, but don't worry--Walk-ins are welcome to attend the Conference! Please be prepared to pay by credit card at the door. You can still register for the post convention workshop:



We are thrilled this year to offer both "Medical" and "Spa" tracks, in addition to other new and exciting educational opportunities, including an Ethics Class, for all Conference attendees.


Grow your practice with techniques and ideas that you will learn at this year's conference featuring both Spa and Medical massage tracks.  Whether you're working already in one of these areas, you'd like to add new aspects to your current practice, or you have an interest in expanding into these fields, the panels will provide you with a place to ask questions and share ideas with leading professionals in the field.  In the classes, you will learn techniques and protocols to help prepare you for working in concert with other medical professionals and possibly create a referral network from medical providers to your massage practice.  Spa massage techniques can enhance everyone's massage clientele and give your clients a relaxing and rejuvenating experience.


Medical Track: The gateway into clinical for the massage profession has never been more welcoming, yet there are still few massage therapists working in medical center settings. This workshop, divided between lecture and hands-on, will give you a better understanding of how to get your hands in the door, and what to do with them once you get there. No new hands-on techniques will be reviewed, but you may be reminded of some you’ve forgotten. Please bring a bed pillow. No lotion or massage table needed.


Spa Track: Many individuals who are sensitive to touch or who experience injury or chronic pain are hesitant to receive massage for fear that it will be painful. The SPA techniques taught in this course are designed specifically to help these client gently transition into deeper structural or therapeutic work without pain or fear. Participants will learn to use exfoliation, mud treatments and body wraps in combination with rhythmic compressions to help clients develop trust, increase circulation and relax leading to a more effective and less painful experience. Wet room not necessary. These techniques can be integrated into any practice.



NOTE: The CAMTC Certificate Holder Discount is already included on the conference Registration Form.
