My Fellow Americans...

I reach out to you today as a massage therapist and  Military family member. I've been practicing massage for 11 years now and my brother Lcpl. Jason A. Parker is a US Marine..both my Grandfathers are USAF..my Uncle Tim is Army..Uncle Joe RIP, was also a Marine. Our Armed Forces endure more physical and emotional stress than most of us could imagine. They would happily continue doing so quietly..because they were built for it. Their warrior spirits take on the burdens and trauma of the world..i ask you to help me secure medical coverage for massage therapy through the U.S. VA. They currently have ZERO coverage for this therapy. One of the most beneficial treatments for PTSD is massage therapy..not to mention, a lot of our Military come home in need of multiple surgeries..massage breaks down post surgical scar tissue..AND..the emotional scars that battle leaves on them. Thank you for your time..lets do right by our Military and demand the VA cover this benefit.
