Television Vs Sacred Massage


A petition has been launched against Lifetime Television regarding a new dramatic series that is slated to premier this April starring Jennifer Love Hewitt called “The Client List”. The series follows Hewitt cast as a single mother who begins to work at a massage spa that is a front for a brothel. The connection of sex with massage is creating outrage among Licensed Massage Therapists who believe that the powerful and sacred work they do to heal individuals will be reduced to stereotypical associations with sexual trade.
