Blythin Leggett, LMT, was presented the Performance Health FSMTA Humanitarian Award at this year’s Florida State Massage Therapy Association’s (FSMTA) convention and tradeshow. This is the 14th year that FSMTA and Performance Health, which is the manufacturer and marketer of Biofreeze, Bon Vital', Cramer, Prossage, TheraBand, and Thera°Pearl health and wellness products, have honored individuals in the massage therapy industry for their efforts in improving the welfare of their clients and demonstrating selfless devotion to others. “I love the heart of this profession and of its practitioners, and selecting just one person to honor among so many worthy choices is never easy,” says Performance Health president Marshall Dahneke. “However, Blythin is another poster child of generosity through her work with our military veterans. Blythin cares for and supports the needs of veterans by donating her time and expertise at MacDill Air Force Base in Tampa, FL, and Quantico, VA. It is truly an honor to present Blythin with the 2016 Performance Health FSMTA Humanitarian Award.”

Leggett is a licensed massage therapist in Florida, a member of the FSMTA, and has served on the FSMTA sports team since 2009. In addition to honoring Leggett at the FSMTA convention, Performance Health will also donate $1,000 to Special Operations Bionic Warriors. “I am surprised, honored, humbled, and absolutely full of gratitude to be the recipient of the 2016 Performance Health FSMTA Humanitarian award,” says Leggett. “I am so fortunate to love my work as much as the people I serve. I believe the Special Operations Bionic Warriors organization provides the strongest correlation with my mission, and I am pleased to have my award appropriated to them.”
