I believe in so many ways that everything is becoming over-regulated...While on one hand, as a practitioner, I would love to say of course they should be a certified/licensed MT - even in the average beauty salon, when they wash your hair prior to cutting, the person who does it usually does a very nice scalp massage, though rarely any neck & shoulder work. I'm sure it's taught in most beauty/barber type schools - so since it's very likely something they recieve training for then my answer has to be no. Just my 2 cents fwiw.
The song of the spirit is as the song
of the river, on a journey back to source.
