A landmark conference, Highlighting Massage Therapy in Complimentary and Integrative Medicine, was held in Seattle, Washington, on May 13th–15th, 2010. The conference was designed to address the status of research related to massage therapy, as well as to have an open discussion regarding attitudes towards research and professional issues. Leaders from diverse manual therapy professions presented interesting and important data. The itinerary and summaries of the meeting can be found at http://www.massagetherapyfoundation.org/researchconference2010.html. In this brief report, rather than summarizing the presentations, we will share a combination of our observations and impressions, as well as suggestions for the direction of massage therapy research.
