Guam - The Massage Therapy and Establishments Task Force will meet with Speaker Judi Won Pat and Senator Tina Muna-Barnes on Wednesday to discuss proposed legislation regarding the practice of massage therapy and massage establishments on island.  It's part of a series of meetings that Guam Attorney General Alicia Limtiaco has been holding in recent months, in an effort to rid the island of the apparent proliferation of these illegal businesses by determining which establishments are legitimate and which are not.

In a news release Limtiaco states, "This meeting is an important step in moving forward with the process of having licensure and certification laws and regulations in place for those who wish to practice massage or massage therapy in Guam."

Limtiaco adds that if passed into law, the measure would strengthen current laws and regulations that will enhance law enforcement efforts, and deter illegal activities in connection with massage parlors. "It would also work towards ensuring the public's health as it relates to communicable disease prevention and control, and provide for establishments to meet the necessary sanitation standards," she added.

Limitiaco is also working with the Human Trafficking Interagency Task Force to address the issue.
