Map and Directions


Deepak Chopra said “No solution can ever be found by running in three different directions.” Don’t you agree? Let’s face it, most of us are so busy in our everyday lives trying to juggle work, family and not-enough time to rest, right? Don’t you think it’s a great idea to get away and have everything you need all in one place? Attending the annual AMTA-WA Chapter Convention gives you just that!

At convention you can network, buy great products, learn about the latest WA state massage legislation and earn CE’s all in one place. Not to mention all the fun you will have, exciting people you will meet and great prizes you may win! So find your solution under the sun this spring in Yakima at the AMTA-WA Chapter Convention. We have some exciting new events lined up for you this year including a fabulous fund-raising wine reception that will benefit the Massage Therapy Foundation!

Let the AMTA-WA Convention be the pathway to your solution!

Massage Table-Check Room 
We think of everything: like not having to drag your table between classes back to your car, hotel room, or off to lunch. At AMTA-WA conventions, we provide a room to store your table in all weekend for a one-time fee of $5.00 (cash only please). The room will be open before and after classes to store your table or get it for the next session. Before bringing your table to the convention, be sure to attach your business card to your case handle and attach something (toy, scarf, etc.) so you can easily find your black case in the sea of other black cases.

AMTA-WA and the instructors have taken precautions to provide a safe environment; however, it is impossible to guarantee absolute safety. Successful completion of each AMTA-WA course does not assume proficiency in a modality or business practice. Massage therapists have the responsibility for ensuring client safety by conducting a thorough intake, devising a safe treatment plan, working within their scope of practice and adhering to the AMTA Code of Ethics and Standards of Practice. Massage therapists are advised to practice the techniques prior to utilizing them in a clinical setting.
I assume the responsibility for safety by complying with the instructor or staff’s directions and by disclosing any contraindication to receiving a massage in class.
I agree to release AMTA-WA and my class instructor from all liability and responsibility for any injury, loss or damage suffered by me, my property or my clients as a result of knowledge I have received from this course.
By submitting the registration form, I agree to give AMTA-WA permission to use my photograph in future communications and marketing materials, should my photograph be taken at the 2013 Chapter convention.
