Do you remember your first client ? Tell us something about that first day when you decided to be a Masseur!
My very first client was technically my teacher/mentor. In 2016 I began putting in the long and rigorous hours to become certified. Esther, “teacher”, would have all her students work on her first so she could act as a human tutorial. It was intense, she was extremely detail oriented and I can honestly say it was the most hands-on experience of my life. But the knowledge I gained was invaluable.
Some people say that being a Masseur is addictive. Would you miss your Masseur days ?
I'd like to know who these people are lol. I like helping people and so I can say that it is definitely gratifying. Addictive? Not so sure.
Do you consider yourself a successful Masseur?
Pandemic has been tough on business. But overall I would say yes :-)
Tell us a little about yourself, if you were to pick something what would you like your clients to absolutely know about you?
I feel it's so easy to be cliché as **** when filling out the "about yourself" section of virtually anything lol. But in regards to rent masseur....If there's one thing you should absolutely know about me it would be that, even though we may not know each other yet, I genuinely care about you and want the absolute best for you.
How would you like someone that contacts you for a massage to feel when they leave?
Like Oprah Winfrey walking off her private jet.
What are your hobbies, what do you like to do in your spare time?
Anything involving creativity and the arts.
Why did you become a Masseur?
I was a very troubled teen who entered adulthood with a lot of trauma and pain. My road to recovery was long and grueling. But from it I gained an interest and affinity for the healing arts.
What advice would you give to someone who wants to be a Masseur?
Get into it for the right reasons.
What distinguishes you from all the other Masseurs?
I take the whole element of the human experience into consideration. And my knowledge tends to be a bit more broad than the average of massage therapist. I've worked in sports medicine, physical therapy and emotional freedom technique therapy.
How long have you been a Masseur and how long do think you'd like to continue?
Going into my sixth year and will continue doing it as long as I"m able to.
How often do you travel? Do you prefer to travel or are you more of a homebody?
I'm a homebody and I also love to travel.
Is extensive training necessary for a Masseur in order to be successful?
Not necessarily.... At all actually. It's very important but it's only one part of it. Having good people skills is extremely important.
How do you like clients to feel about the experience when they leave?
Like they want to continue coming back.
