"Hi, my name is Renee French and I'm here at Practical Massage Therapy in Nashville, Tennessee, and I'm going to be talking about massage therapy.
First, I want to address the term, ""massage parlor."" So, for a legitimate massage business, the term, ""massage parlor,"" isn't really used anymore. It's kind of an old-fashioned term and not really used for a legitimate massage business. So some of the more current terms that are being used to find a legitimate massage business is day spa, massage center, wellness center, massage therapy center, massage studio, and massage practice. And secondly, if you're looking for a legitimate massage business, referral really is the best way. Ask a friend, or a friend of a friend--someone who receives massage on a regular basis--and this should be your best way to find a legitimate massage business. "
