I am truly honored to recognize Mary for all that she has done, and for what I know she’ll continue to do.” In addition to honoring White at the AMTA Convention, Performance Health donated $2,500 to the Massage Therapy Foundation in her name. “The Massage Therapy Foundation does an amazing job for the entire massage therapy profession, and to be able to volunteer and make connections that help the Massage Therapy Foundation is truly a joy to me, “says White. “I hope that I am an inspiration to others to jump on board and support the Massage Therapy Foundation.”
