I was somewhat appalled by recent quoted comments in last week’s article, “State starts regulating massage,” in the CVN. I was appalled at some of the comments that were obviously designed to belittle and degrade and maybe even try to sell one’s self to the public! First of all, if couples would just spend more time massaging each other, there would be a lot less call for professional services. Basically love and a book about massage could take your partnership to new, wonderful places. Science has proved that any touch that is done with love and good energy is healing, licensed or not! Now the disturbing part: I know it is hard to be humble when you are perfect, but can Melina Shields please explain what a “hippy-dippy” massage is and what the person doing it looks like? Just wondering.
