OMTA Spring Conference on the Coast featuring Jeffrey Burch on Understanding Joint Instability
Jeffrey Burch practices in both Eugene & Portland, and offers classes in Eugene and other locations across America. A Certified Advanced Rolfer™, Jeffrey has extensively studied and integrated into his Hands-On Therapies both Cranial Manipulation and Visceral Manipulation. He has developed groundbreaking new joint mobilization methods. This is a special opportunity to get low cost continuing education from one of America's best massage teachers.

OMTA Partners with LCC for Low Cost Continuing Education
OMTA, partnering with Lane Community College, has formed the Lane County Massage & Bodyworkers Organization. On the first Monday of every month we offer an ongoing series of continuing education subjects at the downtown campus in Eugene. Attendance is free, but there is a $5 fee for OMTA members to receive a Continuing Education Certificate. Non-members pay $10.
The OBMT is now requiring LMTs to show four contact hours of continuing education each two-year renewal period. OMTA's former president, Robert Bike is now teaching a four-hour ethics class at Lane Community College almost every month. See his website for details.
New Executive Committee
The Past Presidents Council is now running OMTA. Robert Bike and Melody Morton Gandy are temporarily in charge of all OMTA functions, as the two past presidents willing to serve. More volunteers are needed. Please contact Melody for more information.
