What About Massage Interests You?

Keeping up with a blog—posting at least once a week was my goal—is sometimes difficult for yours truly. There are so many things I could write about with regards to massage, but picking and choosing what I think may interest you is more of a challenge than I originally thought it would be.

I was recently told by a long-term client that she believes I have some perfectionist tendencies. Hahaha… I think I just proved her correct. 😉

Anyway, I will continue to go-with-my-flow by writing about what interests me, but please tell me what about massage interests you by taking a few seconds to complete my poll; your opinion matters!

UPDATE AS OF 10/11/12: I moved the poll to my blog’s sidebar.

 

Did You Know…

That Ohio was the first state to license the practice of massage, and the first applicant was licensed in 1916? In fact, according to the State Medical Board, Ohio is also unique in that it defines massage therapy as a “limited branch of the practice of medicine.”

For an interesting article on the history of massage licensure, please read Massage Therapy Licensing: An In-Depth Look.

This career is no longer bound by myths such as “work of the Devil” or “prostitution”, this career is a legitimate career with legitimate therapists who are proud of their work and that fully support the regulation of their career.

I’m all about rules and regulations when it comes to helping the public via therapeutic touch, and am very interested to see how the massage therapy field continues to change as we move forward in time.

As always, I hope you find this information informative!
