The call for IMTRC scientific submissions invites original massage therapy research that promotes the dissemination and discussion of new information in the following research categories: basic science, education, clinical, case studies, public health and integration of massage therapy in various settings within the conference theme: Integrating Therapies for Pain.

Submissions may be in any of the aforementioned categories and are due by no later than Dec. 14, 2015. The call for abstracts and further information about the conference itself may be found on the Foundation’s website.

This event is the fourth research conference the Massage Therapy Foundation has hosted, with an expected attendance of 300 to 400 people from across the United States and abroad.

IMTRC attendees at the 2016 conference will include massage and manual therapy practitioners, educators, researchers and allied health professionals. Attendees will have the chance to attend a variety of presentations spotlighting the latest massage therapy scientific research.


“The conference is an incredible opportunity for massage therapists and allied health-care providers to learn about new research findings that contribute to the massage therapy profession,” Massage Therapy Foundation president, Jerrilyn Cambron, said.

Registrations will open in November and keynote speakers will be announced at that time as well. Visit the Massage Therapy Foundation website for more details.
