The MTAA is committed to supporting new Massage Therapists that have completed their education and are ready to embark on their new career. One way this is demonstrated is by providing new graduates with the opportunity to receive an award that can go towards their student loans, purchase of supplies to get their practice started or for their MTAA Active Membership.
