Elizabeth Grady School of Esthetics and Massage Therapy has signed on to Cut It Out Middlesex, a program to train salon professionals to identify signs of domestic violence. Middlesex District Attorney Marian Ryan offers the program to train hair stylists, massage therapists, and other staff to spot signs of domestic violence in clients. A recent training session drew more than 100 students and staff from the Elizabeth Grady school. “Salon professionals are in a unique position to assist domestic violence victims who are their clients, because of the intimate, and often long-term relationship many of them develop,” Ryan said in a prepared statement.
