Massage Therapy Gains Sign of Acceptance

The program is the first in the nation to offer a degree in massage therapy. ”For massage therapists, this gives us more recognition and greater respect,” Ms. Filippelli, who has started her own practice, said. ”It’s a first step toward having the medical profession see us as more credible.” A study in The New England Journal of Medicine in 1993 by Dr. David Eisenberg, director of the Harvard University medical education programs on alternative medicine, reported that 12.6 million Americans used massage therapy in 1990, making 77 million visits to therapists. That year Americans spent $14 billion on alternative medicine, often referred to as holistic medicine, and made a total of 425 million visits to alternative therapists, exceeding the 388 million visits to primary-care doctors. The president of the New Center College, Steven Schenkman, said: l ”Many disillusioned individuals are looking beyond a Western medical system that relies heavily on invasive treatments like surgery and medications with many possible side effects.” The new status, he said, ”is part of the evolution of a profession that has been recognized in Eastern cultures for 5,000 years, but is just first becoming recognized and respected in the West.” For students, he added, graduating with associate’s degrees is a jump from receiving a trade license at a vocational school to obtaining a professional degree. The program, which has 350 students, started in 1981. The center also has programs in acupuncture; herbal medicine; Oriental medicine; amma therapy, or specialized massage therapy, and holistic nursing.
