Market for masseurs in S. Korea

SKorean Court Rules in Favor of Blind Masseurs

"A law that allows only visually impaired people to become licensed masseurs does not violate South Korea's constitution, a court ruled Thursday in a victory for the blind.
The decision brings an end to a fierce legal battle over whether the sighted should be allowed to become professional masseurs, a trade that has been reserved for the blind for nearly a century. The debate has sparked fervent protests by the blind, who say massage is their only chance at making a living."
