Do you remember your first client ? Tell us something about that first day when you decided to be a Masseur!
I do! It was a cold November day. I think everything that could go wrong did! I left my phone charger at my place and was going to the O4W in Atlanta it’s called The Old Forth Ward. Which is about 20-25 mins from my house, I also left my wallet and my Oil as well! Don’t worry I am much more put together now! Nerves got the best of me.
Some people say that being a Masseur is addictive. Would you miss your Masseur days ?
I believe that I would. When I say that I am going to take the day or night off I still find myself wanting to get a client. It’s become the norm for me to look for clients a lot of the time.
Do you consider yourself a successful Masseur?
I guess when you establish long term regulars that to me denotes success.
Tell us a little about yourself, if you were to pick something what would you like your clients to absolutely know about you?
Well as you have read my bio I’m in Atlanta native. I was always involved in sports in high school I played three sports basketball, baseball,and, football. So I guess you could say growing up I was extremely athletic. I was high school place kicker for my football team. My sophomore year I kicked a 39 yard field goal with 3 seconds left to put our team into the State Championship.
How would you like someone that contacts you for a massage to feel when they leave?
Well in general,I want them to feel like they contacted me and I met and exceeded all of their expectations.
What are your hobbies, what do you like to do in your spare time?
One of my favorite hobbies is cooking. My family owned and ran restaurant, bars,and,sports bars. We also had catering companys. So the kitchen is not an unfamiliar place for me.Another happy that I enjoy is playing tennis. I also dabble in the sport of golf. Other than that I just enjoy spending time with family and friends. I’ve never been one to be a picky person as far as what kind a hobby or what we do on whether it be outdoors or indoors. I just usually go with the flow and just try to enjoy whatever everybody else is.
Why did you become a Masseur?
I became a masseur for two simple reasons. Honestly I really like to make someone feel very relaxed and therapeutic. Another reason I became a masseur was I generally think that I like to help people feel all certain types ways. Just mostly better about themselves and about their bodies.
What advice would you give to someone who wants to be a Masseur?
This sums up one simple idea that I would give to someone who wants to become a massage therapist. Try shadowing someone for a week and see exactly what their job entails. It’s just that simple!
What distinguishes you from all the other Masseurs?
Well I don’t know if I’m strictly distinguished from the other Massuers. I think we all would like to think that in our own way we have a different style and technique that appeals to every client that we come across.
How long have you been a Masseur and how long do think you'd like to continue?
I started this job in November 2017. Right now it is currently March 30, 2019. I will continue to do this as long as my hands my body If God willing and the creek don’t rise allows me to!
How often do you travel? Do you prefer to travel or are you more of a homebody?
In speaking in terms of going to clients? I am traveling a great deal. To be honest with you I don’t mind. I have been in some very unique and amazing houses, apartments, and condos etc. I sometimes do prefer to stay at home and have the client come to me because it just makes things a little easier on my part. In the end however, all that matters to me is that I’ve made someone else happy,and that I have possibly gained a regular.
Is extensive training necessary for a Masseur in order to be successful?
I would definitely say yes to this question. There is a lot that goes into learning all of the techniques, styles,and, different pressures that you have to apply. Mainly a lot of it is. How you read that client? Also basically what they’re looking for as far and just usually feeling for their receptance to your touch.
How do you like clients to feel about the experience when they leave?
To be honest with yo. I want them to feel like they came to somebody who is just really a great person. Who likes to engage in conversation, network possibly to make a new friendship, and overall just enjoy their experience, and know that I did the best I could to help them relax and feel like they were being treated very comfortably.
