Do you remember your first client ? Tell us something about that first day when you decided to be a Masseur!
I clearly remember my first client. Even though I had practiced with some volunteers while attending Massage School, I felt that with my very first paid client I really had to excel, which I did since I did that first massage not just with my hands, but with my heart, my soul, my spirit, and the help of the positive forces of the Universe.That person still sees me on a regular basis.
Some people say that being a Masseur is addictive. Would you miss your Masseur days ?
I agree with this statement but what makes you become addictive to being a Masseur is your love for people. You immerse yourself in the soul of the person you are massaging and spot their needs in their whole being. That is an awesome feeling.
Do you consider yourself a successful Masseur?
I certainly do. I have received lots of reviews and compliments from many returning clientes and people that have just passed through but decided to stop by my studio to get a massage.
Tell us a little about yourself, if you were to pick something what would you like your clients to absolutely know about you?
I want my clients to know and be sure that once they walk into my studio they become the center of all my attention. I want them to feel they are royalty.
How would you like someone that contacts you for a massage to feel when they leave?
I know most of my clients leave my studio as if they were walking on air. They even tell me they wish they could have a massage from me on a weekly basis.
What are your hobbies, what do you like to do in your spare time?
I work out. I meditate. I do yoga, and I am an avid world traveler.

There is nothing more rewarding in this life than to feel the touch or touch another human being. As a matter of fact as soon as you are born you bond immediately through the magic of touch.
What advice would you give to someone who wants to be a Masseur?
Don't become one if you are just looking at the lucrative aspect of it.
What distinguishes you from all the other Masseurs?
Even though I love to learn from others, I never try to become them. Every individual is unique. I love my uniqueness.
How long have you been a Masseur and how long do think you'd like to continue?
I have been a Masseur for 17 years. I will only quit if God forbid I get arthritis or anything like that.
How often do you travel? Do you prefer to travel or are you more of a homebody?
I travel very frequently. I love meeting different people and understanding their culture. It is an important part of my life and work.

As important as training is in the field of the massage business, nurturing your soul with compassion, love, empathy, and understanding takes you a very long way.

I want the to feel that they were in a safe, respectful, serene, blissful environment where they could let go and be themselves.
