Response to Recent Charges of Sexual Harassment of Massage Therapists

Response to recent charges of sexual harassment of massage therapists:

The American Massage Therapy Association (AMTA) is concerned for the well-being and professional respect of massage therapists. Massage therapy has become an increasing part of the health regimens of many people, including athletes. If accusations about massage therapists being sexually harassed by professional athletes in New York are proven true, this should be a sign that our society needs to take very seriously the manner in which professional women are treated. Approximately 85% of massage therapists in the U.S. are female. Massage therapists are trained professionals who deserve the same respect and dignity as any other professionals.
