Many companies are experiencing cut-backs these days. But one profession is actually thriving—and helping to ease the stress of our slow economy with touch.

“People are just stressed,” says Marge Gore, “and stress is a killer.”

Gore is a licensed massage therapist. Her business is doing great right now. After all, she says, “Hey, who wouldn’t rather have a massage than go to the doctor?”

She says many of the new clients at her Arlington massage studio are all opting for a holistic approach to health—one that doesn’t require insurance.
