Massage Makes Me Happy Initiative
Hundreds of cultures around the world have relied on the tradition of touch for healing. Early Chinese medicine used massage therapy for a variety of healing remedies because massage was considered to create happiness. In keeping with this tradition, the Global Wellness Institute has created the Massage Makes Me Happy Initiative to celebrate the healing powers of massage therapy.
The goal of the Global Wellness Institute is to promote the benefits of massage therapy through education and global awareness. By creating a platform around the initiative, their hope is to stimulate storytelling about the benefits of massage by professionals, consumers, and educators in the industry. In addition, the initiative hopes to consolidate clinical research for a deeper integration of massage into the healthcare and wellness practices.
The Soma Institute in Chicago also wants to promote massage therapy worldwide.
