Letters to the editor Pensacola News Journal, Pensacola, Fl.
Each year the governor proclaims “Massage Therapy Awareness Week” and our chapter extends that throughout the month to spread awareness about the many benefits of massage therapy.
As president of the Emerald Coast Chapter of Florida State Massage Therapy Association, I want to extend a very big “thank you” to a few of our best and most faithful licensed massage therapists in Escambia and Santa Rosa counties. They not only took time away from their practices and asked their patients to reschedule, but donated time on weekends to give the gift of touch.
This year our organization was able to help with donations to Covenant Hospice, National Dow n Syndrome Society Buddy Walk, Angel’s Garden Art Fair and the Ronald McDonald House (Airplane Pull).
A huge thank you to those therapists: Donna Stone, James Fritschle, Roberta Broussard, Rene Kivell, Susie Hastings, Terry Brightwell, Vi Garcia and Julius Daniels. They set themselves apart from others and that truly shows and will surely be rewarded.
To quote Mother Teresa, “We can do no great things, only small things with great love.”
