Those planning on going into massage therapy, especially with abuse survivors, like Don, will probably really appreciate this.
Those planning on going for massage therapy as abuse survivors will also find this extremely helpful I think.
While written for those going into massage therapy as a career, it helps us as potential clients know how massage could be for us & for the MT. It could also open up helpful discussion for better massage.
If nothing else one could give a potential MT the article ask them to read it & tell them what they think, and decide if that MT is right for them accordingly.
You don't even have to say you've been sexually abused, its about abuse in general, no need for any detail.
It may be worth looking at to enhance our understanding, whether we are looking for an MT or not...
