This is an adjunct wiki to supplement & organise the discussions that take place on the Skeptical Massage Therapists Facebook group to record the conclusions of our discussions on various subjects relevant to the science & practice of massage therapy. Perhaps it can serve as a way of reaching consensus on various subjects (externalising our collective knowledge), as well as a place for folks new to the group to become acclimated to what has been established or agreed upon.
