Message from the President and CEO

 

 

As President and Executive Director of the Fondation québécoise de la massothérapie FQM, I am delighted to present the work carried out by the Fédération québécoise des massothérapeutes.

As a professional order formed over 30 years ago, the Fédération has also created a foundation whose mission is to contribute to the health and quality of life of persons living with cancer, particularly seniors and their family caregivers.

 

Massage therapy offers numerous benefits – which are often little-known among the general public. By making massage therapy more accessible and showing a willingness to lend a helping hand, certified massage therapists and FQM members are able to improve the quality of life of persons with cancer during an extremely arduous and often prolonged period of difficulty.

We’re proud to be associated with the Fondation québécoise du cancer in our continued efforts to allow thousands of people to reap the benefits of massage therapy. As well as mitigate the side-effects of treatments for the disease, massage therapy helps to relieve pain, and more importantly – and this is a refrain we hear time and again – it gives people a feeling of “well-being.” What is certain is that we would not be able to achieve our mission without the support of our donors, who believe, more than anything, in improving the quality of life of persons with cancer.

 

Your support is essential, and we invite you all to lend health a strong hand !

 

The President and Executive Director,

 

Sylvie Bédard
