Date and Time:
Wednesday, June 12th

Location:
Distance Learning (Online)

Note From The Speaker:

“Using DTP is an intro class. It also helps MT’s think about why they use technology in their practice.  It’s the building blocks for a communication/practice strategy.

Integrating DTP is for those who are already using technology and want to take a step back to be more intentional about it and fine tune it.”

Integrating Digital Tools and Platforms Into Your Massage Therapy Practice
Jul 24 @ 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Session Description
CE: 3.0

Once you have started using digital tools and platforms, it is important to look at how they are supporting your practice and keeping your clients engaged.

We will discuss what digital tools and platforms you are currently using. We will examine how they are and are not working. We will discuss and demonstrate how they integrate into your practice and with each other, and we will identify the steps to improve and strengthen your digital tool and platform system.

This century bike ride (100 miles) joins a community of riders dedicated to changing the world for people with MS one pedal stroke at a time. This ride begins at Levi’s Plaza (100 and 75 mile ride) and makes its way through the coast and hills of San Francisco to a finish at SOMO Village, Rohnert Park, all while raising funds and awareness of Multiple Sclerosis.

Only the California Chapter massage therapists will provide massages to The 100(ish) Club Riders.  These riders are aware that they will be treated to a massage at the end of their ride, for their efforts in fundraising.

These athletes are very local, primarily coming from the San Francisco Bay and surrounding areas.  This is a great opportunity to grow your practice, so please bring your business cards!  Historically, tips from the riders have been very generous!

AMTA CA will also be promoting our National Massage Therapy Awareness Week® (October 20-26) and FindAMassageTherapist.org® while working with the MS Society at this event.

What we need from you: 
Register through CVENT to be a volunteer. Arrive by 9am! to unload and set up. Bring your massage table and/or chair.  Dress comfortably, but professional.  We will be outdoors under tents.  Weather/Temperatures change throughout the day, so dress accordingly. Remember to Bring Your Business Cards!!  We should be done and able to leave the event by 6pm.  You are welcome to stay longer to enjoy the festivities with your bracelet.

The Chapter and MS will provide bracelets, name tags, business card rack, table cleaner, hand sanitizer, disposable face cradle covers, gloves, masks (if desired or required by the event), sign in/waivers/consent to touch for the athletes, chairs, top sheets, food drink, possible T-shirts and swag bag.

Updates may be made closer to the event by the coordinators at MS. Expect a “Know Before You Go” at least a week before the event.
