International Massage Therapist of the Year

International Massage Therapist of the Year | Tina Allen | Liddle Kidz FoundationWhat is the International Massage Therapist of the Year?

Tina Allen, Founder and Director of the Liddle Kidz Foundation honored by One Concept and the American Massage Conference as International Massage Therapist of the Year.

The selection process for the award consists of three components:

  • contributions to improving the skills of massage professions internationally
     
  • improving healthcare industry relations and in turn creating new opportunities for massage therapists internationally
     
  • and directly improving the quality of life of people through the gift of massage therapy to those in need internationally

 


 

The organizing committee and advisory panel for the American Massage Conference chose Tina Allen as the inaugural International Massage Therapist honoree due to her global work in the field of massage therapy.  Tina Allen has been leading a global revolution to bring the benefits of nurturing touch and pediatric massage therapy to children internationally.  Part of this mission includes training professionals to become Certified Infant Massage Teachers (CIMTs), Certified Pediatric Massage Therapists (CPMTs) and leading volunteer healthcare professionals on global outreach missions to orphaned and abandoned children around the globe.

As a recognized international lecturer, author and authority on infant and pediatric massage, Tina Allen teaches families and professionals throughout the world in the many benefits of infant, children and pediatric massage.

Tina Allen and Liddle Kidz Foundation’s work has spread across the United States and Canada, and abroad to the UK, England, Sweden, France, Germany, Thailand, Japan, and Vietnam.  Ms. Allen will soon launch an Australian tour.
