BrendenV's Massage Interview
What are your hobbies, what do you like to do in your spare time?
I love travel and I love playing music. I play guitar drums and I sing I really enjoy expressing myself and making other people happy with the shared experience. I also like drawing and painting and public outlaw art (graffiti) I am just a creative free spirit and I really enjoying connecting with my clients
Why did you become a Masseur?
I give my friends massages and they always said I should do this professionally. I travel a lot so working freelance serves me and my clients well. I can be anywhere and meet new clients and meet new and interesting people. It makes me happy and satisfied to make people feel great and I love to spend some time with people and make them feel so much better with just the touch of my hands
How would you like someone that contacts you for a massage to feel when they leave?
Basically I feel great knowing a made someone feel great and relaxed as well. We all live in a high pressure world so if I can leave them relaxed and smiling I have done my job well.
Do you consider yourself a successful Masseur?
I consider myself a success when people recommend me to others and they have great things to say about my style and my personality. That's something you cannot buy or fake people tell people and that's the best
How often do you travel? Do you prefer to travel or are you more of a homebody?
I love to travel, I like everything about it. I guess I am lucky because a few of the things I do require travel, massage modeling and music take me around America and soon the world
Is extensive training necessary for a Masseur in order to be successful?
training helps but a lot of makes you good/great is personality and the ability to connect with your client and make them the focus of your time, to make them happy and satisfied. No amount of training can replace that
How do you like clients to feel about the experience when they leave?
this is a simple question to answer: SATSIFIED
What distinguishes you from all the other Masseurs?
the one thing I think I am most proud of is feeling what is needed. That ability sets me apart because I am very empathic and I really feel what needs the most attention and at what level of [pressure so it makes for a very connected experience
