It’s hard to find good, local Massage Therapists for specific techniques

02/08/2011 - Leave a Response

Ever wonder how to find a good Massage Practitioner near you that does techniques you want? Where do you look? Phonebook? Craig’s List? Friend’s referral? Massage Envy? Online? Wouldn’t it be nice if there were one website where you could find exactly the therapist or type of bodywork that you wanted quickly and accurately?

That’s where MassageGPS comes in. We are an online directory helping clients find therapists.

Massage Therapists’ Businesses Often Hard to Locate

01/18/2010 - Leave a Response

Many Massage and Bodywork Practitioners have ever changing office locations due to a variety of things. Most often situations with landlords, chiropractors, other therapists change or finances change, hence a change of venue. Sometimes non-compete contracts or distance makes it difficult for a Massage and Bodywork Practitioner to retain clients when changing locations. For this reason, a well managed and readily available Massage and Bodywork directory is the solution to locating a specific therapist at different locations. By listing with MassageGPS.com a therapist can move virtually anywhere and if a client knows the therapist’s name, business name and/or approximate location they can locate their specific therapist easily.

Along with a Google map, link to email and website for the therapist, MassageGPS offers a printable coupon for clients to take to their appointments. The coupons can include directions, address, phone number and discount. All of which make life a lot easier for the client. All the information is in one place and they  get a deal on their massage session(s).

MassageGPS.com is offering FREE listings to all Massage and Bodywork Practioners, Individuals and Businesses, until February 15, 2010. They are interested in helping Practitioners build their businesses, be found easily and be successful doing what they enjoy doing – helping others!

Letter Regarding Upcoming Massage Legislation in Minnesota

04/04/2009 - One Response

Dear (Head of Movement to get Massage Licensed in Minnesota),

I am writing to you about the legislation effort ALMT is championing to bring about MN state licensure for massage therapists. I attended a meeting awhile back that you led, sharing the process and requesting help from massage therapists to see it through.

I am concerned about a few things and request your response to these concerns before I can honestly and whole-heartedly support your organization’s efforts. These have come from discussions with other MT’s and from thinking back to the earliest attempts that I can recall to make such legislation happen.

First, it appears that this legislation has been prewritten without much of our input. I wonder if the AMTA didn’t write it quite awhile ago and then tweak it as they go from state to state?  I don’t recall being asked for input and I have asked many therapists that I know if they were. Their responses have all been a resounding “no”. The meeting I attended just asked for my support to get it passed and to encourage other therapists to do the same. It appears that it has been brought in by people outside of the state with an agenda to get legislation in place, not to tailor anything to our needs. What does the legislation really say? Can I get a copy of it?
How many massage therapists have you actually contacted in Minnesota? I venture to say it is a minority of them because Minnesota has one of the largest therapist to client ratios in the country. It’s hard to access them all, I am sure. Word of mouth is probably your main means of contact, correct?

I am very concerned about how this legislation would restrict me. It appears to be telling me how to do my work, rather than assuring prospective clients if I am ethical, honest and legal. How does limiting what I do make my chosen work field a progressive one? One small “for instance”, stretching. Does the legislation intend to limit my capacity to use stretching in my work? A muscle flexes, contracts, relaxes, and can also atrophy. If a client’s muscles only seem to know contraction mainly, am I going to be restricted from encouraging these muscles to know what stretching is and feels like (ie. assisted stretch)? Can I not encourage the client to stretch more and show him or her different stretches to help their body? Once this legislation is implemented, it would take forever to undo, so I want to know what it looks like before I agree to it hook, line and sinker. Don’t assume everyone is on board. Some people I’ve spoken to are actually feeling too paranoid to respond to your calls to action because they may be limiting their scope of practice. I remember way back that many objected to legislation like this because it was either the chiropractic or medical or physical therapy field that was going to oversee our practices and work and there was great fear of limiting our capacity and scope to do our work. Has this legislation addressed these concerns?

Please don’t read this as an attack on your hard work. I am not “yelling” at you in this email. I am voicing strong concerns and worries. It would be nice not to have to be subjected to the whims and fancies of each city for licensing, but at what price? Did you know that some cities still plan to enforce their own licensing policies anyway, despite this legislation passing? Heck, this is a source of revenue for them and many of them don’t know what the legislation entails, either. They still have their concerns about who will be practicing in their city…is this therapist ethical, honest and legal? Will this legislation calm their fears? Prostitution hiding behind massage therapy is still a huge concern. How will your legislation assure them that this will be stopped?

I thank you for responding to my email. I would appreciate a copy of the legislation or knowing where and how to go about getting a copy.
