Sexual Health Education in Massage Therapy Programs: A Survey of Program Directors
Zamboni, Brian D.; Healey, Dale K.
American Journal of Sexuality Education, v11 n3 p176-188 2016
Massage therapy program directors completed an online survey to explore sexual education in massage therapy programs. The overall data suggest that program directors are supportive of sexual health education in the training of massage therapists and that such education is integrated into several aspects of their training programs. To enhance sexual health education, massage therapy programs could collaborate with specialists in sex therapy or sexuality education. Massage therapy training may need to include the following topics: working with clients who have been sexually abused, working with transsexual clients, understanding sexual arousal processes, and understanding dynamics between men and women.
