‘Massage parlor’ is an antiquated term | Letter

In the Sept. 14 issue of the Bothell/Kenmore Reporter, Aaron Kunkler referred to Harmony Massage in downtown Bothell as a “massage parlor.”

It is not.

“Massage parlor” is an antiquated term denoting unlicensed massage and prostitution.

Harmony Massage is a professional clinic employing therapists who’ve completed a minimum training of 500 hours including kinesiology, pathology and contraindications to massage therapy, CPR, communication and ETHICS. A minimum 24 hours of continued education, including eight hours of ETHICS are required for license renewal every two years.

Mr. Kunkler, you owe the owners and employees of Harmony Massage an apology.

Sonya Grace, LMT

Owner of Graceful Healing in Kenmore
