Do you consider yourself a successful Masseur?
Yes I do- my length of time in the business and the number of repeats and regulars-some of whom I have worked on for many years. Also it is amazing the vast variety of guys that I have worked on. All different types-young, old, big guys, small guys, gay, straight, bi, and of course the bi- curious lots of them-they feel very comfortable with me and the fact that I am very discreet. I think all these things have made me successful.
What distinguishes you from all the other Masseurs?
I feel I bring almost 15 years of experience. Also I am truly a people person-I also fill somewhat of a niche in the market. When I first started to market the "Coach Bear Fantasy Massage" I didn't realize there was a need for that type of massage. It seems that a lot of guys want to get rubbed down buy a Big-Burly-Hairy-Handsome-Ex-Football Player Bear. Maybe it goes back to high school or college . A lot of my clients tell me that I remind them of their football coach in high school and that they always-well thought about what it would be like to get a massage from him. This unique massage lets a lot of guys do that live out a fantasy that they have had for a long time. I am definitely unique in the industry in that respect. It really has been a popular massage.
How do you like clients to feel about the experience when they leave?
First and foremost I want them to feel satisfied and relaxed. I also want them to feel that they have bonded with me to some extent. Massage is a very personal thing- we do not let our defenses down a lot in life-if you are going to allow what is considered to be in many cases a stranger put their hands on you and touch you-you better feel that you have spent the hour or 90 min with someone that was worth the time and money. My goal is to make sure that every client has made that connection.
How long have you been a Masseur and how long do think you'd like to continue?
I have now been in business for ove 14 years and it has been a great ride for me. I really have enjoyed everyday that I have been a therapist - yes there have been a few lows-but considering how long I have been doing this it really has been a very positive experience. I was a corporate trainer before I did this-I left the corporate world to follow this dream and truly have never looked back. I will continue as long as I keep enjoying what I do.
Tell us a little about yourself, if you were to pick something what would you like your clients to absolutely know about you?
I think that I am a pretty genuine person-people tell me that I am kind and giving-I think that is important if you want to be a success in this business. Over my career I have worked on thousands of guys-many repeats and many regulars have told me what a nice guy I am and how I make them feel comfortable- even with the shy first-timers. That is my goal and it makes me feel good.
