GSN members, pioneers of the new health-care and vitality centers, are leading the way through conscious business practices, educating and nurturing clients and community.“We have a unique opportunity to rise to the greatest challenge in the history of humanity, to deliver to all future generations of life a vital and abundant planet with fully developed truly sustainable technology for all. Nothing could be more important” (from a United Nations Study on Happiness).

ASM has been taking steps towards implementing sustainable business practices starting with the utilization of the SAT and GSN tool kits. In addition to recycling, energy and water conservation, Atlanta School of Massage has enhanced sustainability by purchasing non- toxic paint, carpet made of recycled materials and furnishings made from sustainable resources.
