Donation to the Massage Therapy Foundation

Books of Discovery, distributor of the textbook Trail Guide to the Body, recently announced its two-year contribution of $50,000 to the Massage Therapy Foundation. Citing the importance of a strong relationship with the massage and bodywork community as an element of Books of Discovery’s success, Andrew Biel, author of Trail Guide to the Body, describes this donation as a way of giving back.

The generous gift will aid the Massage Therapy Foundation’s mission to support massage therapy through scientific research, education, and community service. Diana Thompson, president of the foundation, recognizes Books of Discovery’s donation as “a fine example to students and faculty, practitioners, and vendors of the profession.”
