A Message from the President


Hello to our AMTA family and friends!


     This message is to let you know what a wonderful time we had at the South Padre Convention.  The climate was absolutely outstanding and the facilities were exceptional.  I believe everyone there was satisfied.  Our educational presenters were great, and I would like to extend a special thanks to Savitri Frizzell, Bob Leal, and David Lauterstein for their time and informative education.

     One of the things that I liked most was listening to people get excited about the massage industry and the future of massage education in Texas.  Therapists were e-mailing members of the Texas State Senate with pleas for better training and stronger regulations pertaining to massage therapy in Texas.

     The attendance at this convention was larger than any convention in the last 10 years—and we met 100% of our budget for attendance!  We also elected new officers and delegates who are all excited and ready to get to work.

     I want to encourage you to attend our next membership meeting in El Paso in October.  We have another great educational opportunity planned with an excellent presenter.  Also, you will have the opportunity to network with other massage therapists and friends from all over our great state.

     If you would like a convention or membership meeting in your area of the state, please let us know so that we can try to plan for it.  Your participation is always appreciated.


In Service,


Lou Castleman,

President Texas Chapter
