Petition Closed

"The Client List" is a series that perpetuates the misconception that Massage Therapy includes inappropriate sexual contact. Massage Therapists are trained healthcare professionals and in most states are licensed and regulated by state medical boards. They adhere to a code of ethics and in some cases are under higher ethical standards than other healthcare professionals - because of these very same misconceptions. Many therapists are now working in doctor's offices and hospitals and providing valuable therapeutic services. "The Client List" is a huge step backwards. We ask that the entire series is pulled. We will note any advertiser that supports this series and will petition them directly.
