  • Will You Give a Patriotic Massage to a Veteran on the Tenth Anniversary of the Iraq War?


    Do you know a veteran that served in the Iraq war? Did you know that most of the early veterans of the Iraq war signed up to fight in Afghanistan because that’s where they were told the fight was but during training they found out that they were being shipped to Iraq?

    Do you know of an Iraqi veteran who has given their body for their country? Will you massage them as your patriotic duty to thank them for their service? Do you know of a family member who lost their loved one due to the war whether in combat, or from injury or sacrificing their own life because of the horrors of war that they witnessed?

    There are no winners in war whether that war is between a nation, a community, a neighbor, a loved one or a friend. Fighting does nothing to bring out the best in anyone except for the profiteers of war that make a profit from killing creating unbearable devastation for the rest.

    There is no reason on Earth for war especially for those that are God fearing souls. There is not one culture on Earth that is purely evil but perhaps driven to take drastic actions by unfair practices of those who have the power over them. People do desperate things under duress.

    Children are children whether they are Iraqis, African, Palestinian, Asian, Israel, Afghan, American, polka dotted, striped or pastel. It is adults who rob children of their innocence of children and rob them of their childhood with adult ideas of hate, power and ego. Who puts the gun in a child’s hand with the intent to kill? Who is it that steals a child and forces them into sexual slavery or forced manual labor?

    Who is it that deprives a child of their deciding their own future? Who can crush the free will and the individual inalienable right of happiness which is above the law in any country? These crimes against humanity are carried out by the same person that can turn their head and ignore injustice and the same person who only cares that their world is OK on Facebook and has enough to eat.

    Facebook is not the real world because it never shows the real pictures of war. It is a pretend world for the profiteers prying into your privacy making it seem like a service with fun games. The truth of war is never told by the lives destroyed by war, the children born with birth defects from war, the minds infected by war, the water contaminated by war, the rapes that happen by the “good guys”. The truth is controlled as much as it is contrived by the profiteers.

    On the tenth anniversary of this terrible tragedy and one of the darkest marks on American history will you do your patriotic duty by giving soothing touch to someone that did their patriotic duty for you?

    Good health is a result of good health care and hygiene. How can drugs hels up? Remedies like Deltasone usually is used to solve disorders such as immune system disorders. Glucocorticoids synthetic steroids, which are readily absorbed from the gastrointestinal tract. Certainly most famous is Kamagra. What about viagra doses and sexual health problems? Maybe every adult has heard at least something about http://corpmoreinfo.com/viagra-dose.html. The most significant point you need look for is viagra 25mg. On occasion folk need medicaments to determination sexual disfunction. Such diseases usually signal serious ills: low libido or erectile disfunction can be the symptom a severe health problem such as diabetes. Prescription medicines can help us, but they can also come with undesirable side effects. It's significant to mind that not all medicines are safe.

  • Massage Therapists Need to Police the Massage Profession to Protect Massage Therapy


    Are you familiar with the massage therapy informational website called Not in Our Name.org? This website tells the story of when massage therapy is permitted to go unchecked and state agencies just collect revenue without requiring responsibility through background checks, passport pictures on state licenses and finger printing. Perhaps California local law enforcement has had the right idea to protect massage therapists and massage therapy as a profession all along. Something has to be done if there are not enough health care jobs in hospitals or health clinics.

    Perhaps it is time to make massage therapy a real healthcare profession and require a healthcare professional to issue a prescription for massage therapy treatment. It would certainly put a bite in the sex trafficking trade because hopefully healthcare professionals would be less likely to take bribes and be bought off. Is there any other health care profession that does not work under a doctor’s supervision and protocol? This is another reason why massage specialties can be a solution to the dilemma plaguing the massage profession being overtaken by wolves.

    Get involved by informing your local legislators about what can be done to stop the dark side of massage therapy. Keep writing the Lifetime channel about how much they suck to represent massage therapy as prostitution in the show The Client’s List. Or, are the lobbyists trying to change the public perception of what is acceptable as massage therapy? This hurts massage therapy as a legitimate business and invites trouble. It also creates a hostile and dangerous environment for massage therapists. The public tends to generalize and when eyebrows are raised with one massage therapist it is thought that all massage therapists act in the same manner.

    How many Thai massage therapists, or Reflexologists, Reiki or Aromatherapists have been pegged with prostitution? Another reason why massage specialties can distant you from the general impression about massage therapy.

    Sure there shows like Nurse Jackie and shows like Scrubs that feature the problems or absurdity in medicine but the Client List on Lifetime does not portray an absurd or accurate picture of massage therapy and only the distorted picture of happy prostitutes with massage therapy licenses. The writers of the Client List do not tell the underlying story involving sex trafficking which is enslaved prostitution. The show of the Client’s List portrays massage therapists performing sex for fees as a voluntary decision which could not be any further from the truth when sex trafficking or prostitution is involved but then again television is not the truth slayers it claims to be.

    Since everything on TV is owned by a handful of owners which may explain why these few business moguls are trying to pass off prostitution as an innocent hand job and no harm is done. Write to those companies that sponsor their products on the Client List show and include petitions from other massage therapists, family members and friends that will no longer buy the products advertised on the show along with giving negative reviews to others on Face book and other social marketing websites. Money talks and you know what walks.

    Then there is the problem of real client lists in massage franchises that are on the rise. It is the duty of every massage therapist to abide by a code of ethics for the sake of their profession. Every massage therapist that turns their head or thinks they cannot make a difference should maybe find a new line of work and give up their official state license.

    State massage boards make millions of dollars in fees and can afford to perform background checks for those who own massage establishments, or offer massage therapy in their spas and salons. It may be better to feel a bit insulted having to go through the trouble of a background check or fingerprinting or putting a passport picture on a massage therapy license but it is better than feeling helpless by allowing those who sell their soul and profit from others misery involving them in sex trafficking, prostitution, violence and rape against their will under the guise of a licensed massage therapists.

    Not on my watch hopefully will be the new mantra for massage therapists who really are massage therapists to help others legally.

  • Hats Off to the Federated State Massage Therapy Board


    It takes a great organization to do the right thing. The massage testing agency, the Federated State Massage Therapy Board (FSMTB) has the highest standards and ethics in the massage industry and is the only organization taking the bull by the horns in doing their part to help clean up the fraud in the massage profession. They are working with state legislators and state massage boards to assist in weeding out the problems that have occurred or are still occuring in the massage field. Read the following press release from the Florida Legislature Secretary of State and Florida Govenor Rick Scott. They will be coming to your state massage board to help clean up the fraud and mishaps that have been happening in the field of massage therapy for years. After this notice another 160 state massage therapy licenses were revoked and many state massage licenses that were obtained through fraudulent means volutarily relequished their state massage license to avoid further damaging evidence against their record.

    Statement from State Surgeon General and Secretary of Health Dr. John Armstrong on Suspending Licenses

    “Yesterday, I signed emergency suspension orders (ESOs) suspending the licenses of 81 unscrupulous massage therapists who obtained their transcripts through fraud. Today, I had the opportunity to talk with massage therapy schools and colleges across our state to share with them what our Department has uncovered and how we can learn from this experience to improve our processes and licensing system. We have encouraged our Florida approved massage therapy schools to evaluate their transcript processes and identify best practices for preventing such behavior and we encourage educational institutions nationwide to do the same.

    The Department of Health will begin notifying state massage therapy boards nationwide with the help of the Federation of State Massage Therapy Boards to ensure that the esteemed profession of massage therapy is held in the highest regard. The massage industry continues to be a vital component of Florida’s economy and we want to ensure that those who utilize massage therapy for relaxation or therapeutic services can feel secure that their therapist is fully qualified and licensed to provide this service.”

    The Florida Department of Health’s mission is to protect and promote the health of all residents and visitors in the state through organized state and community efforts, including cooperative agreements with counties. For more information, visit the Department’s website.
