I am delighted to announce that my study that focused on how massage therapists are experiencing the impact of regulation in their work will be published in the International Journal of Massage Therapy and Bodywork. With the help of a medical research and Fielding colleague, Elena Gillespie, we wrote an article based on my findings. It is entitled “The influence of practice standards on massage therapists’ work experience: A phenomenological pilot study”.
This is an important move forward for qualitative research in massage, and integrating the voice of the therapist into established knowledge. My thanks go out to the many who made this accomplishment possible.
