"Therapeutic Section" on Craigslist

Thank you to all the licensed providers of therapeutic massage services who are still posting on Craigslist despite the onslaught of posters from the "erotic" section.

It's safe to say that we all know there are two types of massage providers and massage clientele. There are those who are dedicated to and provide massage as a Health and Wellness practice and there are those who seek and offer massage as a part of the Adult Entertainment industry. Most massage therapists who have been doing this a while have come to terms with this fact and could really care less how people choose to spend/earn their money or what they consider to be "therapeutic". No amount of crack-downs will stop it. That's reality. What we do want is to be differentiated from the "other" type of massage.

Unfortunately, this has become more difficult in recent months. Craigslist used to be a great place for LMT's to advertise and find clients seeking legitimate massage services. Now it is hard to stand out in a sea of individuals offering "sensual," "erotic," "bikini/lingerie," and "happy ending" massages. Many potential clients will go elsewhere to seek what they need when it appears that they are in the wrong place.

So again, thanks to those LMT's who continue to post there, offering some sense of legitimacy to the section and the rest of us who continue posting there in search of clients seeking massage for Health purposes. If anyone is looking for an alternative, I know a great website/forum reserved for the therapeutic massage industry. I hope Craigslist can find a better way to keep our two industries separate and less confusing/frustrating.
