Is Your Massage Therapist Licensed?
NC requires a license to work in the state. A Licensed Massage Therapist will have a number, usually listed as LMBT # 8350 (my number). You can put that number in at the bmbt.org for license verification. Put in their number or name and it will pull up there name and found out if their license is active or not. Or if it is even a real license number. BE AWARE. There are people working as "massage therapists". They are not licensed which means: They do not have the training, are not required to uphold the Code of Ethics, are not required to take continuing education classes, and are not paying their tuition and not insured. So do your homework before putting yourself in a situation you may find yourself uncomfortable.
90% of Disease is Stress Related
Experts estimate that upwards of 90 percent of disease is
stress-related. And perhaps nothing ages us faster, internally and externally,
than high stress. While eliminating anxiety and pressure altogether in this
fast paced world may be idealistic, massage can, without a doubt, help manage
stress. This translates into:
- Decreased anxiety.
- Enhanced sleep quality.
- Greater energy.
- Improved concentration.
- Increased circulation.
- Reduced fatigue.
Furthermore, clients often report a sense of perspective and clarity after
receiving a massage. The emotional balance bodywork provides can often be just
as vital and valuable as the more tangible physical benefits. ~ Massage
