LJ LJ G'lJ U LJ LrJ J Massage therapy booms in United States Tanna Barry J ' editor in chief N icholas Demas loves massages. Demas, a Weber State University senior, said he has had four massages during the last year because they help him to relax and get rid of muscle pain. "You have a massage, and then these muscles that were in a ball get worked out," he said. "It's just wow." Demas worked as a manager at Federal Express for two years. The lifting and moving required would "tweak" his muscles all the time. The massage helped alleviate that. But he is just one of many people getting massages. Consumers spend between $4 billion and $6 billion annually on visits to massage therapists, according to the Journal of American Medical Association. This money accounts for 27 percent of the $21.2 billion spent on unconventional health care. Massage therapy, the profession that once held a stigma, is now booming as more people become interested in alternative healing methods. Massage was once associated with the "red-light district" because people would use it as a guise for prostitution. But now the alternative healing method is losing that stigma and becoming more popular. About 800 people go to the Salt Lake City campus of UCMT for massages every weekend. "It's a huge industry right now," said CG Funk, assistant director of education for Utah College of Massage Therapy. "People love it." About 25 million Americans make 60 million visits to 85,000 practitioners a year, according to the UCMT handbook.

|Description||Weber's current student newspaper, the Signpost, first appeared on September 29, 1937. For two years prior to that time, campus news was disseminated via announcements posted on a bulletin board known as the "Signpost". As a result, the masthead of the first issue of the paper itself featured a rudimentary wooden sign with the title spelled out in rustic-looking letters. Over the years the paper has been published continuously, though the look, size and style has changed several times.|
