Charlottesville Area Massage Therapy Consortium (CAMTC)

Please consider joining the new Charlottesville Area Massage Therapy Consortium Google Group. This will allow members of the bodywork community to post to the group using just an e-mail address. People may join or leave the group at will. For more information email:

If you are a massage therapist and are interested in joining the Charlottesville Area Massage Therapy Consortium—free of charge and/or obligation—please provide contact information to Cecilia Mills at or text/voice to 814-571-9234 for more details.

This is a completely voluntary association, formed with the intent of joining together professional massage therapists in the area for the very simple goals of sharing information, networking to strengthen our referral lists, and mentoring new therapists on an informal basis.

There are no fees, no regular meetings, no drain on your time—just the opportunity to meet with your colleagues and to get to know other therapists in the area! The group is open to all certified therapists in good standing, whether insured independently, or via the AMTA or ABMP—affiliation does not matter; all are welcome!
