Over the years, we've found that those that do not understand the importance of orthopedic positioning have yet to experience the difference it can make. Most of our dedicated bodyCushion™ customers around the world had a major "Aha!" moment the first time they compared lying comfortably on the bodyCushion™ with lying prone on a flat treatment table.
If you are interested in experiencing the difference for yourself, Body Support Systems, Inc will be attending a variety of trade shows in the upcoming months. If you are able to attend any of the trade shows listed below, be sure to stop by our booth for a bodyCushion™ demonstration and learn how orthopedic positioning can benefit your patients and/or clients.

Mike Hinkle and Cindy Michaels started the World Massage Festival in 2006 when AMTA asked members to come up with some ideas to help bring attention about massage to the general public for Massage Therapy Awareness Week. Mike studied the profession and realized they were not recognizing their own, they were charging a wide range of prices to get the same education and he decided to create some options. To recognize their own, he created, "The Massage Therapy Hall of Fame".
To draw people to such an event, he created "The World Massage Festival". It is an annual event that travels around the country. Mike set the following Mission Statement for the Festival: To honor those who built the bridges for our profession, to educate the general public about massage, to educate therapists about different types of massage and to have fun.
The goal is to provide all therapists with an opportunity to study with the leaders of the massage industry at a cost that is affordable. They believe every massage therapist should be able to learn from the masters and they do their best to make it happen. The World Massage Festival tries their best to steer clear of politics. In fact, the Festival, for some, is a retreat FROM the politics of the profession. A chance for them to learn from the best in a pleasant, casual environment with no judgments being made about anything.
