Nota Bene: The Massage Therapy Foundation invites many international professionals to work with us in various capacities. We designate their academic degrees and professional credentials according to the countries in which they qualified. We make every effort to do this as accurately as possible. If any previously referenced credentials or degrees have been listed here inaccurately, we regret the error and will work to avoid it in the future.
