Massage therapy is not a sex service
Ripple Massage is calling on the adult industry to stop using the term 'massage' to describe their services.
Alison Shaw, owner of Ripple Massage a national mobile massage service, believes it's time the sex industry used a different euphemism for its advertising.
Shaw explains "massage is a legitimate profession, similar to other health care professions such as nurses and ambulance drivers.
"Our massage therapists offer purely a health care service and work under a code of ethics similar to other health care professions.
"All of our therapists are qualified to minimum nationally accredited standards with either a Certificate IV or Diploma of Remedial therapy in massage.
"We also offer health fund rebates for many of our massages.
"A recent report in the Gold Coast Bulletin indicating that many brothels operate under the term 'massage' or 'massage parlour' is indicative of a nationwide problem for legitimate massage therapists.
"As a result, clients are often left confused between the two, making it difficult to seek out a legitimate health and wellbeing service."
Medical research has shown that the benefits of massage include pain relief, reduced anxiety and depression, lower blood pressure and a lower heart rate. The increase in serotonin brought about by massage can prevent fibrosis and scar tissue and can improve the functioning of the lymphatic system.
It also stimulates the immune system, can prevent the formation of adhesions and it also helps remove uric and lactic acid.
Ripple Massage provides a unique mobile massage service to women, men and couples in NSW, Queensland, Victoria and Tasmania.
