Foundation has offered the Case Report Contests, for both practitioners and
students, since 2006.  These
contests are held as a way to encourage the writing of case reports and to
provide an opportunity for massage and bodywork practitioners and students to
develop research skills and enhance their ability to provide evidence informed
massage to the public. Cash prizes are available to the winners of each
contest. Prizes are contingent on publication of the case report.


reports play an important role in the professional literature. This contest is
intended to enhance professional development skills of the practitioner:
writing case reports helps develop communication skills, critical thinking
skills, and could contribute to future research and clinical practice.
Additionally, continuing education credit is available through the National
Certification Board of Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork (NCBTMB) for submitted
reports that adhere to all requirements.
