Ethics: Massage Professionals Against Human Trafficking | 3 CE hours

Sustaining Our Massage Profession’s Legitimacy By Recognizing and Advocating Against Human Trafficking

If you live in NC, there is no question that on your drive to work today you drove past someone who is being trafficked. They are someone’s mother, daughter, brother, uncle, or sibling. They are a whole person whose freedom has been denied. Their day starts and ends with forced labor and physical and psychological restraint. They are never paid. They are picked up at the end of their day and driven to where they are housed in a group under lock and key. They are moved frequently between communities, often up and down the I-95 and I-85 corridor. They know their own lives or lives of their loved ones are threatened by their captors and they fear speaking out even if there were an opportunity. The people who use their services might know they are slaves but yet again, they may not recognize the signs that come with being trafficked. If they know, they’ve rationalized the part they play in perpetuating slavery.

It is human nature to want to distance ourselves from sickening and uncomfortable reality and convince ourselves that since it doesn’t directly affect us, it doesn’t happen. The cancer is there and cancers grow and society’s safety net weakens. As massage therapists, our profession’s legitimacy is directly affected by human trafficking by way of sex parlors that pose as legitimate walk-in clinics or mobile massage units. How is it that parlors can “hide in plain sight”? Why does the public bring young children into a dentist or psychologist office when there is a sex parlor right next door in the same clean and family friendly shopping center? The more sex and slavery advance undeterred on our profession, the harder it is to uphold our profession’s legitimacy. It takes a community of massage therapists to fight back and protect our livelihood and be angels for others who have no voice.
