Such wonderful info from so many views. I am a Massage Therapist, with training in Injury Rehab and not "rub downs". I have worked on people that have been in serious car accidents, the dying and the greiving. I have worked with "real doctors" that see the value of Medical Massage. And I provide for my family very well. My husband is not unemployed we choose to "raise" our own children instead of buying into what society thinks we should. I am also able to instruct others in Medical Massage. I was under the impression that I would be chatting with educated people. Massage Therapy is not just a "rub down". It has many different applications, such as for injury and soothing the nervous system which affects every organ& cell in the body. Not to mention the affects for the Mind and Soul. I appreciate everones cander and honesty. And I will come to visit!
