Evolve Massage is a division of Amara Massage Therapy & Wellness.
PROFESSIONAL MASSAGE THERAPY DEVELOPMENT & EVENTS
Our events are catered to all massage therapists, including newer and veteran manual therapists who are ready to update their knowledge base. We seek to bring together the best and brightest minds in the industry for speaking, immersion and workshop style events. Different from many of the traditional “continuing education” formats seen in the industry, our mission is to facilitate unique experiences and bring together groups of people that will challenge old ideas and move the massage therapy profession forward!
Evolve Massage was created by Catie Morgan, LMT, owner of Amara Massage. After nearly a decade in the industry Catie became frustrated with lack luster foundational massage therapy programs and inconsistent educational requirements from state to state. Most “continuing education” in the massage industry can be guru centered and taught from an oral history perspective instead of based in scientific research and evidence. If you’re sick of traditional tool box approaches to bodywork that give you nothing but protocols and techniques without depth of knowledge or actual evidence, Evolve Massage is here to help! Join us at a future event and challenge your knowledge base!

Massage Therapy Research: An End-of-Career Perspective
What is the current status of massage therapy research, and is it being used to meaningfully inform training and practice? In a two-part symposium, psychologist and massage therapy researcher Christopher A. Moyer, Ph.D., will first present objective data, combined with insights drawn from his own career, to examine these topics. After the luncheon, symposium attendees and Dr. Moyer will collaborate to identify goals that the U.S. massage therapy profession should pursue to further the integration of research and practice.
