Masseur Jobs to Be Exclusive for Blind.

Lawmakers are discussing a new law to allow only the visually impaired to work as masseurs, despite the Constitutional Court's ruling in May that denied the constitutionality of such exclusive rights.

The National Assembly's Health and Welfare committee yesterday issued a bill revision allowing only visually impaired people to be masseurs or masseuses.

According to the revised bill, visually challenged people who have finished massage courses at schools equivalent to high school or have graduated from middle school and have taken more than two years training in massage at government authorized institutions, are qualified to be masseurs.
