The FQM massage therapy Month is a promotion and awareness campaign that calls upon massage therapists' involvement.
For a month, usually in October, we invite members to organize various promotional activities and / or fundraisers to benefit the Fondation québécoise de la massothérapie FQM.
In 2011, the activities surrounding this event were promoting the benefits of massage therapy for people living with cancer. We are all challenged by this terrible disease. It strikes our families, our friends or colleagues. The medical care provided reassures us. But we also wanted to alleviate their anxiety, distress and suffering.
Moreover, some schools accredited by the FQM held a MassoDon in their area to raise funds for the Foundation, during which the public was invited to receive a massage on chair or table.
