July 21, 2014, Toms River, NJ and Clifton, NJ
– Each year massage therapists and bodyworkers nationwide lend their hearts and hands to raise awareness of the benefits of massage, bodywork, and somatic therapies during EveryBody Deserves a Massage Week
. This year that fell July 13-19, and Toms River and Clifton massage therapy students and faculty joined in and raised not only awareness about the benefits of massage, but also about a great cause.
Each campus hosted a Massage-A-Thon, welcoming walk-ins and appointments to help raise funds for donation to Big Brothers Big Sisters
, American Institute’s premier charity partner for 2014. Big Brothers Big Sisters provides meaningful, monitored matches between adult volunteers (“Bigs”) and children (“Littles”), ages 6 through 18, in communities across the country, to help at-risk children succeed and thrive. American Institute is proud to support this effort in each of our communities this year.
