Where do industry knowledge and experience meet to create the most unique and relevant massage therapy website in cyberspace?
WhyMassageTherapy.com (http://www.whymassagetherapy.com) is an information portal for all things concerning massage therapy, and was developed by Jodi Forsythe (RMT) in response to her desire to find information online that was professional, relevant and accurate.
"In the 9 years I have been a practicing massage therapist and a massage therapy educator, I have seen a huge need for public education about the profession." stated Jodi Forsythe, creator of WhyMassageTherapy. "There are so many misconceptions about the profession that I want to provide information to the public not only about the benefits of therapeutic massage, but also about the practice and the business of massage. In this climate of economic uncertainty, the site also provides a perfect reality check for those going through a professional transition who might be considering massage therapy career."

De-mystifying the practice and profession of massage therapy is meant to empower potential students, schools and massage therapy businesses by ensuring that people know what they are really getting into. "As a former educator in the profession, I definitely noticed that the more realistic vision a student had upon entering massage therapy school, and the more information they had before enrolling, the more likely he or she was to succeed, not only academically, but in business as well. With increased preparation comes increased student retention, it just makes sense. For me, it's about attracting the best candidates to the profession, and then supporting them with resources to help them succeed throughout school and into their chosen career."
The website is not just for benefit of newcomers to the profession, and members of the public, it is also meant provide moral support for therapists as well. "There is such an advantage to being able to bounce ideas off of other therapists and professionals. Everything from business and practice management to anatomy review, treatment techniques, products - you name it, it will be discussed on the blog." (http://www.whymassagetherapy.com/blog)
