Invitation to Participate in A National Study on Canadian Registered Massage Therapists’ Experiences of Sexual Harassment and Assault by Clients

Massage Therapists are invited to participate in a cross-Canada research study to evaluate massage therapists’ experiences/lack of experiences of sexual harassment and assault by clients led by Morgan Richard (Principal Investigator, University of New Brunswick), Dr. Lucia O’Sullivan (University of New Brunswick), and the Canadian Massage Therapist Association.

The study will provide valuable information about the rates and responses to sexual harassment and assault of therapists by clients. All professional or registered massage therapists in Canada are invited to participate anonymously, regardless of whether you have had a personal experience of sexual harassment or assault. The survey should take you about 30 minutes to complete.

As a thank you for participating, you will have the opportunity to submit your e-mail into a draw after the survey for a 1 in 10 chance to win a $25 Amazon gift card.
