Do you remember your first client ? Tell us something about that first day when you decided to be a Masseur!
My first client was a nice gentleman in LA who had a gorgeous penthouse. The session was very relaxed although I was a bit nervous. His reaction to my touch and desire to make it recurring gave me the confidence boost I needed. I haven’t stopped since.
Do you consider yourself a successful Masseur?
I do. I’ve had clients all over the world and the consensus is the same: satisfaction. I pride myself on my technique and intuition. The money has been lucrative but the general feedback is priceless!
How would you like someone that contacts you for a massage to feel when they leave?
I always ensure that my clients feel refreshed or they can’t leave lol
I want to make a regular customer out of you! That’s the goal. I like to connect with my clients deeper than the sensation of the massage but actually make sure they feel revived.
What advice would you give to someone who wants to be a Masseur?
Know what you’re doing. This field isn’t for the faint because it is tiring but the reward is so worth it. Have a keen awareness of the body!
Is extensive training necessary for a Masseur in order to be successful?
I don’t think so. With everything, if you’ve got “IT” then you just do. Massage is moreso about intuition than academia. Technical knowledge is vital in forming a style with different modalities but it isn’t the only criteria for a great masseur.
