These Blind Massage Therapists Have the Right Touch

A massage clinic in a Dallas suburb has hired four massage therapists with one unusual thing in common: they're blind. Diana Alvarez, Bill Thayer, Zane King, and Paul Hughes work at the Massage Envy clinic, using their sense of touch to guide them. "Massage therapists who are blind really rely on touch alone," King explains. "And of course the right touch is the key element in massage therapy." Check out this AP report to find out more.

When I was in massage school we did several sessions blindfolded. The focus of our work really improved! Great story!!

That is awesome! It makes sense and you wouldn't have to be so uncomfortable naked in front of them. I think I'd prefer it.

Great story. I looooove to get massages and an intuitive, engaged therapist can't be beat.

Hurrah! People with disabilities have lots of abilities, too, and I think it is great that people are looking at their abilities.

When I was in asia, there was a shop in the airport that offered massage. All the CMTs were blind. Honestly, I didn't notice until my boyfriend said something about it.
