Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) June 20, 2011
Leticia Allen, president of Atlanta School of Massage, was awarded the Lifetime Achievement Award at the ONE Concept Gala held during the American Massage Conference on Saturday, May 21, 2011 in Atlanta Georgia.
The ONE Concept Award honors professionals in the field of massage and bodywork who have made significant contributions to the profession of massage therapy. ONE Concept is an organization comprised of alternative health care providers who promote and practice the benefits of operating an environmentally conscious business while preserving our ONE planet.
Leticia Allen founded Atlanta School of Massage, the first massage school in Georgia, in 1980. “I owe this award to all the students, graduates, staff and faculty who embody our vision: the marriage of honed skill and a giant heart of compassion, united by a spirit of service,” said Allen. “I owe this award to Atlanta School of Massage who has been my teacher for 30 years. I owe this award to my mother whose love has embraced me through success and failure.”
Atlanta School of Massage students participated in the conference by offering mini-massages at the “Sanctuary” with all proceeds going towards the Massage Therapy Foundation which provides funding for research in advancement of the industry.
