No one should be censored if expressing their opinion Laura. Geez, if that were the case I'd go and delete half of these discussions on here that just seem to be repetitive or ridiculous in my opinion!
Laura I never saw your comment that you are speaking about .How would the person who deleted it feel if they had someone do that to them? Totally rude!
I am getting so tired of people thinking they know more than someone else. For heavens sake, can't we play nicely?!
I've dropped away from a few discussions because of this.
Laura I respect your opinions, even if I wouldn't agree, which is rare.
As for people thinking/feeling Swedish or relaxation massage is not as therapeutic, in my opinion they don't know the value of effecting the parasympathetic nervous system. In these times, more people need to relax than have more stimulus provided. I have studied all types of massage. And I am constantly humbled to realize that relaxation /swedish is incredibly powerful.
I have had clients tell me those were the best sessions they "ever" had!
Maybe we all need to re-consider what it is we are doing??? Like Ryan said, The more education, sometimes the dumber we are...not far from the truth.
As far as your comment and massage vs. sex....yes, there will always be someone.
Why is it we focus on this negativity? Why is it we don't feel we get respect? I'm listening to these words (some discussions) on here and it sometimes surprises me as I have not had to deal with this in my profession of almost 25 years.
There are days I can't even read any more of theses discussions . UGH
Travis, I agree, life is too short to not be happy!
Crystal I hear you about the rudeness sometimes
Ryan, love your Smiley!! :)
So to all of us out there - let us give each other respect....then maybe people will respect us for what we do.
That' my sermon Laura ;)
I've also seen a thread on this site, in which I was a very active participant, entirely deleted with no explanation. That's definitely frustrating. I put quite a bit of time and energy into saying some things that I thought were important, and then - poof! Gone.
