The Dangers of Patronizing Unlicensed Massage Therapists
Potential Injuries
Since unlicensed massage therapists don’t receive the rigorous training required in Oregon, they’re more likely to accidentally harm you with poor technique.
Overworked, Underpaid
If a massage business/individual is unlicensed, it means they’re operating illegally. Therefore, it’s possible that the therapists working there are underpaid and possibly in a human trafficking situation.
In addition to the employees of the illegal business being financially exploited, it’s also likely that they’re overworked. It’s true with any occupation that working too many hours leads to carelessness and errors. A tired massage therapist has more of a chance to aggravate an injury on their client than a well-rested one.
