Massuese and Masseur, oh my!!!

My Name is Christi and I am a Licensed Massage Therapist. I have been performing massage and spa therapy and clinical #bodywork since 2005. Now, more than ever, #massage therapists are required to have significantly higher amount of training hours and certifications to practice at the State and National levels and will be going up at the end of 2013 in the state of California. However, there are many who are still referring to us as a “Massuer” or “Masseuse”. I encourage the general public to throw those words out of their vocabulary and to start using the terms “Bodywork” or, of course, “Massage Therapy” instead. Even though, according to the Webster Dictionary those words refer to male or female practitioners of massage, they carry sexual connotations that still inherently keep us from being take as seriously y as we need to as licensed health care and holistic professionals. Hit LIKE and SHARE if you love your massage therapist! 

Stop the word to end the word!
