Each year, Performance Health, manufacturer and marketer of Bon Vital', Biofreeze, ProssageTheraBand, Cramer, and Thera°Pearl health and wellness products, honors individuals in the massage therapy industry for their efforts in improving the welfare of their clients and demonstrating selfless devotion to others. “A key to being a true humanitarian is to know that the soul is healed by serving others in need,” says Marshall Dahneke, CEO of Performance Health. “Jane Kordish knows that even greater healing comes from serving our country’s ultimate servers—those in our military. We as a country embrace members of our military service—those willing to sacrifice everything for the freedoms we enjoy. Yet, at first blush, not all may equate being a humanitarian with service in the Armed Forces or serving those who serve us. I am so pleased that the FSMTA executive committee chose to recognize both—a veteran dedicated to serving those in active-duty.” In addition to honoring Kordish, Performance Health donated $500 to Special Operations Forces Bionic Warriors and $500 to Comfort for America’s Uniformed Services (CAUSE), an organizationthat offers services for members of the U.S. Armed Services recuperating from injuries received in support of operations in Iraq and Afghanistan. "I am truly honored to accept this award and I want to thank the FSMTA and Performance Health for highlighting the important work we are doing to bring the healing power of educated touch to our military community,” says Kordish. “I must take this opportunity to challenge others to get involved in community service and to thank my colleagues for tirelessly supporting our efforts in Florida and beyond. We as massage therapists share many traits in common with our military service members, veterans, retirees, and their families such as commitment, dedication, and a code of ethics.”
