So soft tissue therapists, bodyworkers, manual therapists, sports


massage practitioners, massage therapists...you’re going to love this issue I hope! Lots and lots of content around fascia and structural integration which is becoming a very hot international topic indeed and a sign of things to come for sportEX dynamics in terms of content.


However it does raise both a national and international issue around terminology and naming conventions. The Aussies continue to struggle with this as you’ll read in the next issue. They asked their mailing list to vote for their preferred profession name with results as follows: remedial massage (25.6%), massage therapy (20.9%), myotherapy (2.3%), soft tissue therapy (44.2%) and musculoskeletal therapy (7%). The athletic therapists struggle in Canada because they often work with other ‘physical’ therapists like chiropractors who refer to them for the rehab aspects but ‘non sporty’ clients can be reluctant to see the athletic therapist because they don’t consider themselves ‘athletic’. I even get it with the journals. Often our content isn’t sports-specific but the brand ‘sportEX’ puts off people who don’t work in sport because perfectly reasonably they think the content won’t be relevant to them (I’m on it!). Naming and professional identification is incredbily important and we need to think it through carefully and urgently.
