Whitney Lowe, LMT was presented the 2015 Performance Health and Massage Therapy Foundation Humanitarian Award at this year’s American Massage Therapy Association (AMTA) National Convention held in Pittsburgh, PA last month. Performance Health, manufacturer and marketer of Biofreeze, Bon Vital', Thera°Pearl, Prossage, TheraBand, and Cramer health and wellness products, annually partners with the Massage Therapy Foundation to present this award. Lowe was honored for his efforts in embracing the power of massage and the mission of the Massage Therapy Foundation to promote education and research while serving others. “This is our seventh year honoring the Performance Health / Massage Therapy Foundation Humanitarian Award winner and we look forward to many years to come,” says Marshall Dahneke, chief executive officer of Performance Heath. “I am grateful to the foundation for their work supporting and elevating the massage profession through research, education and community service, and for partnering with Performance Health to jointly honor individuals that give so much to others. This is truly a blessed profession because of the service-minded people it attracts. And Whitney Lowe is another ‘poster child’ of generosity, commitment and leadership. Following nine years of post-secondary education, Lowe authored and contributed to nine foundational books on massage therapy. He has served on advisory and editorial boards and task forces, supporting the advancement of research and promoting improved education across this profession. “Every one of us believes in the power of touch and its ability to bring relief and healing to the human body,” says Dahneke. “The power to touch the mind, harnessing the collective capability of many therapists, has an even greater and enduring impact. Combine that with the power to touch the heart, to create a depth of passion for good and you’ve described Whitney; a master of touch, a man who touches the future simply because of what and how and who he teaches.” In addition to honoring Lowe at the AMTA Convention, Performance Health donated $2,500 to the Massage Therapy Foundation in his name.
