AMTA Calls on The View to Treat Massage Therapists With Respect

Posted on: Fri, 07/02/2010 - 4:29pm By: Alice

On June 24, 2010, commentators on ABC TV's program The View turned a discussion about recent allegations against former Vice-President Al Gore into a general discussion about massage therapy and massage therapists. The conversation quickly degenerated into a smear of massage therapists and slandered an entire population of licensed professionals.

In response, the American Massage Therapy Association sent a statement from President Kathleen Miller-Read to the producers of the show. You can read the AMTA's response in full:

You can watch the segment of The View and leave your own comments. If you have benefitted from massage therapy and agree that their remarks regarding massage therapists are inaccurate and insulting, please let them know.

Thanks.

“That Was Awesome!”

Posted on: Mon, 04/12/2010 - 7:21pm By: Alice

“That was awesome!” This was the comment most frequently heard during the two hours I was doing minimassages on a constant stream of girls ranging in age from 5 years to around 12 years old. A couple of adults and teens snuck unto the line, too.

The event was called Girls In The Know and, in its first year, had 500 little girls and their moms sign up in advance. Several St. Louis massage therapists, including myself, were asked to volunteer at the event.

I’ve worked many events over the years: the Working Women’s Survival Show, Earth Day, the Muscular Dystrophy Telethon, and numerous health fairs, to name a few. When I walked into this event, though, and saw a sea of little girls, I thought, “Oh my goodness, this is going to be different!” To be honest, I was a little intimidated at first. I’m accustomed to working with adults at these events; what was it going to be like having scores of very young girls line up at my table? Well, I’m always up for an adventure.
