SHARED KNOWLEDGE, SHARED EXPERIENCE

The President of the Massage Therapy Foundation (MTF), Douglas Nelson, explains the value of massage therapy research. Mr. Nelson discuses the importance of shared knowledge and shared experiences progressing the field. Project COPE is featured as a new research initiative "to capture our insights and feelings about the experience now, not retrospectively from some point in the future. To our knowledge, this is an incredibly unique project that will have a potentially significant impact."

MASSAGE MAGAZINE: TELL YOUR STORY WITH PROJECT COPE

"The COVID-19 pandemic is having a significant impact on the therapeutic massage profession while continuing its general world influence. From shutdowns to reopenings and perhaps back to shutdowns, education to practice, clinician to student, provider to client/patient, and researcher to participant, COVID-19 has disrupted life, schedules, livelihoods and identities. Many of us are functioning in survival mode as we balance the many contexts of our lives, with our mental health and emotional well-being certainly affected."
