Submit a Research Poster

Research Posters are a visual way to present research findings at a scientific or professional meeting.


The Massage Therapy Foundation (MTF) is pleased to assist the American Massage Therapy Association (AMTA) with a yearly MTF Poster Session at AMTA National Convention.

Posters are an important way for massage therapists and researchers to share their expertise with other members of the profession. MTF encourages participation in this event to create a forum for informal discussion of research, and to provide attendees with the opportunity to learn how research impacts the profession. Foundation Poster Sessions provide a showcase to share massage therapy research with over 1,000 expected convention attendees.

MTF Poster Sessions include posters from three categories: original research, programmatic evaluation, and clinical case presentations. Posters should include research findings, photographs, charts and diagrams, and be accompanied by an abstract. Share you work and help inform and inspire other massage therapists!

2020 Poster Session applications are now closed. 2021 Poster Session applications to open Spring 2021.
