how can you state in this statement or response that massage has no effect in the reproductive health and then proceed to say you can damage the area. I am in massage therapy school and I am to understand from what I learn that everything is to improve the health of all the body parts that we work or to relieve stress and relieve some discomfort. yet I agree in some cases you do have indications not to massage. just putting my two cents in, sorry.

Expertise

I can answer many questions about massage therapy, about how massage therapy works and what effects it has on the body, different massage modalities and what each one does, tips on finding a good massage therapist, indications and contraindications for massage therapy, and on what to expect during a massage treatment.

Experience

I graduated from one of the top massage schools in the country, the Desert Institute of the Healing Arts in Tucson, Arizona, with 1074 hours (in a 1000 hour school) of hands-on training and theory, including Anatomy and Physiology and Pathology. I graduated from massage school in August of 1999. Before I began massaging I learned reiki, a form of energy work. I currently work in Tirra Salon and Day Spa, an Aveda spa near downtown Chicago.
