Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
plagues no group more than soldiers who have served in combat. As a
massage therapist, you can step forward to help ease the soldiers'
suffering by using the power of touch.
One professional organization providing massage to overstressed
and traumatized client populations is the American Massage Therapy
Association. They serve disaster-relief workers, victims of
domestic violence and returning U.S. military vets.
Massage Emergency Response Teams are administered by state and
local chapters. To locate a chapter contact the national office at
847-864-0123 or www.amtamassage.org.
