What exactly does this mean?
In the State of Texas
people who are trained professionals.
To become a Registered Massage
Therapist, in the State of Texas, one
must acquire 350 hours of training
in anatomy, physiology, massage,
hydrotherapy, and business at a
State accredited School of Massage.
In addition to training, a candidate
must take and pass a written exam
and also pass a practical exam, i.e. a
demonstration of skills administered
by the State of Texas. A R.M.T. is also
required to take 6 hours of continuing
education per year, prior to renewal
of registration each year.
What else does a R.M.T. do for clients?
Although most R.M.T.s are not trained in other
fields, it seems that because of the nature of our
profession, most people feel comfortable enough
with their Therapist that they can confide in and
open up to the Therapist. We become a confidant,
an adviser about health and fitness issues, a
pseudo-psychologist, friend, and fulfill many other
needs for some clients.
What being a R.M.T. does not mean.!
We are not psychiatrists, doctors or chiropractors
and cannot cure physical or mental problems.
We are not miracle workers, if we were we would
charge a lot more! Many people have a misconception
that R.M.T.s are escorts, purveyors of sexual services,
prostitutes, or what ever you may choose to call a
"person" that satisfies sexual needs or sexual fantasies.
If we were, we would charge a lot more money!
This is not what we do for our clients. That does not
mean that a massage does not feel great and is not
a pleasurable experience, because it certainly is. Many
people get a massage just to be touched by another person,
and that is also a healthy thing because everyone needs
to be touched to be healthy. A good massage feels absolutely
great and it should. But you should not go to a R.M.T.
thinking that you are going to have you way sexually,
or fulfill the sexual fantasy of you daydreams.
We do provide a very beneficial and therapeutic service
for your mind, body, and spirit and that is exactly what
you should expect from a registered massage therapist.
What about getting a massage from an unregistered person?
You get what you pay for! A person who has not been trained,
especially in anatomy and physiology, may do physical
harm to you. True a massage is not rocket science and it is
possible to do a massage without training, however anyone
attempting deep tissue work without knowledge of the body may
very well do damage to your body. Most people not registered
are probably only offering sexual services under the cover massage.
