By Editorial Staff

"Where does a consumer find reliable information about alternative care on the Internet?" This is the topic of a segment on the award-winning national television program "Healthy Solutions." (Please see their website at for more details.) Host Mariette Hartley examines the need health care consumers have for reliable information on the Web, and features Massage Today's website,, as the choice for massage news and information.

The "Healthy Solutions" program-featuring is scheduled to air as paid programming:

  • Saturday, June 23rd at 12:00 Noon Eastern Time on CNBC
  • Saturday, June 23rd at 7:30 a.m. Eastern Time on The Health Network
  • Sunday, June 24th at 7:30 a.m. Eastern Time on The Health Network

Broadcast times and dates are subject to change. Please check or for broadcast dates and times.

For five seasons, "Healthy Solutions" has been helping to educate and empower audiences to make the most informed choices for themselves and their loved ones. The Massage story will help to encourage millions of viewers to learn more about massage and health online at with hundreds of web pages of information. In addition, they can ask questions of James (Doc) Clay, MMH, NCTMB, on the "Ask a Massage Therapist" forum and search for a massage therapist in their area from a complete worldwide list on the MassageLocator directory.

As part of the program's regular promotion, advertising for the segment was placed in three print publications:

  1. Access Magazine (April 1 issue) - considered "America's guide to the Internet," the publication is featured in the Sunday newspapers to 14.4 million households.
  2. Today's Caregiver (June issue) - with a circulation of over 150,000 primarily medical healthcare providers.
  3. Monthly Prescribing Reference (June issue) - a circulation of over 146,000 medical doctors and pharmacists.

In addition, media releases were sent to over 100 major magazines, newspapers and news services announcing the program topics. This is the first time "Healthy Solutions" has ever featured a massage segment on alternative health. Their usual programming is much more medically oriented. It is hoped that this is one more way to provide reliable information resources to interested consumers.
