A. The fact that, if you are a masseuse, not having a license is a felony, and

B.  The fact that it is somehow a concern of the New York Education Department, who notified the NYPD about Diane Lee Wolozin’s lack of license.

    Hmmmm. I think all practitioners of WOO should be licensed. And made to prove that their particular brand of WOO actually does something more than the placebo effect. And made to prove all claims of “curing” whatever it is they claim to cure.

    However, after thinking about it, a FELONY is a little tough….in fact it is a lot tough.

    Um. Sonic, as a Licensed Massage Therapist myself (ask Deux, he and Citizen Prime have both been my clients for years), yes, being a MASSAGE THERAPIST should be a licnesed profession. New York has one of the strictest massage licensing on the books, as does D.C. I must have over 600 hours of class work, and do at least 14 hours of CE every two years to maintain my license. I must have tons of liability insurance. I MUST have a certification in CPR and First Aid.

    You are dealing with not only peoples bodies, but their emotions. You need to be trained in musculo-skeletel anatomy , physisology, and active listening, among other things. Massge by someone untrained can be dangerous-they may not be able to recognize signe of blood clots, which massage can dislodge, they need to know what muscles do what and why, etc.

    They are absoloutly right in this case. Her first duty was to call 911 and begin CPR, not call Mary Kate Olsen.

    Also, the word Massuese and Masseure is sexist and passe, and is often used to indicate that something…um..untoward was going on.

    Deux, back me on this!
